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!

Chicken nightmare

One of those days. Did two chickens using the firebrick method and they came out great. Did that back in Nov. when I got my egg. Decided today to use the wirestand for one chicken. Chicken on BGE at 11:30. Wife made potatoe salad. 1:00 rolled around chicken not done. 2:00. then 2:30. I couldn't understand it, polder read about 160 but manual read about 175deg. Took it off and cut it. I had it on pizza pan trying to cut it. Cut off a leg and it needed cooking more. Started cutting more. Then the leg fell off the pizza pan into soapy dish water. When I went to grab that, knocked entire chicken in. My 13 year old daughter was laughing profusely. Washed it off best as I could and back on the BGE. Tasted it later and yep, tasted like soap.. Threw it all in trash. When wife got home she asked "that was not a hen was it" I said yes. She said that was the problem. Wound up going to Dairy Queen. Win some and lose some I suppose. Bought a bottle of wine on the way home, so things will get better. :)

    Ric McN,
    Funny, funny, funny. Some days are diamonds, some are just plain ol' rocks. Your 13 year old daughter must have a great sense of humor. Better luck next time!!!
