Cooked my first chicken the other day with the vertical roaster. I picked the chicken up afterwork and was overwhelm from reading to many egg recipes so all I did was spray it with some olive oil put a hickory chunk in the fire. Cooked it at 350, The breast was nice and juicy and the legs were a little over done. We then made chicken soup out of the bone and some of the meat. It came out pretty good. We cooked some corn bread on the egg tonight(very yummy) and ate it with the soup. I thought the hickory might have been to much but it was not to bad. Also when all of were worried about you mad max turkeys, it was christmas time for me, my dad hooked me up big time 3 bag of lump,polder, place setter, turkey, chicken rigs. I also want to thank you all for putting some great info up to help us new folks beggin to master the egg. The wife was making already making fun of me and made pose for a picture hugging the egg.

    Pdub ,[p] Have you named your egg yet? Do you find yourself petting your egg? Have you started consuming strange alcoholic drinks? Do you find yourself looking out the window to make sure your egg is ok?[p]Welcome to the Family :)
