Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Whole Chicken on the Mini

Rigged this contraption up in the meantime before I get my woo and stones. :) Regular stainless steel great, then a large charcoal grate covered in foil, then a jalapeño popper stand elevating the chicken. Seems to be working! LOL

    Thermometer wouldn't fit obviously. Anyone have any advice as to how to clasp the thermometer on the inside without using the big bulky standard clasp? I'm gonna use a wine cork on the outside, but not sure the best way to attach it. TIA!!

    I threw away the thermo clasps long ago.  I put a section of cork on the outside to lessen the length of probe.  If I close it on some food, it just pops out rather than stab the food.

    Thx, @nolaegghead... I'll just do that then and let it go without a clasp.

    I have seen some install clip on the outside of the egg (instead of inside the dome).

    i.e. - use the clip in place of the cork. This is what I plan to do.

    I flipped the clasp and use it on the outside. The thermometer still sticks into the egg past the reading line on the thermometer.

    But I do like the cork idea, just not sure it will last as long in the elements.

    Thx for the tip about using the charcoal grate, @Chubbs! Worked like a charm.

  • Excellent idea using the ABT stand!  I've only done a whole chicken once in my mini.  I used the Smoking Guitar Player method.
