Hi, I’m the proud owner
of a Mini for several weeks.
Cooking a whole chicken
has been on my mind from the first second. I tried it, and the result was just
I took out the upper ceramic ring and placed the indirect stone instead.
bought a simple, cheap ring-cake form (22cm diameter), put some vegetables
underneath and pour a bit of beer on it.
way an average size chicken fits perfectly into the egg.
only headache was the thermometer. I didn’t want to touch it, so the solution
is: cutting out the neck of the chicken completely. The free zone there is the
right place for the thermometer while cooking.
way the temperature really drops in the Mini.
indirect stone, and the body of the chicken together reduce the temperature
inside. However, it is still around 160 Celsius (the thermometer shows 130, but
it can’t be really precise because of the egg being overpacked).
result? Something really delicate, succulent, juicy and tender meat.
