Small Egg and Chicken

<p />I am finding that the small egg does the best chicken! Seems to burn more even, and the proximity to the coals, with a slightly raised grate sems perfect. Plus, must be something about the dome being smaller and cooking more from the top. Maybe it's magic.[p]90 minutes starting at 300 and settling on 250, then 10 minutes with the sauce at 300. The small egg (and my new spring hinge) is a great little cooker! Each size seems to have its own favorite food.[p]Beers!

    Nature Boy,[p]I always thought the same thing too. Could it have something to do with the large amount of moisture in such a small area? [p]Wingnut

  • Is the small model big enough to do a whole chicken on a beer can (a drunk chicken or whatever they call it)?[p]Is there enough height?

    King,
    Yes. Using the regular grate level you could easily do a beer butt chicken. It's a great lttle cooker. I think overall I use it more that the medium and the large. [p]Cheers!

    Wingnut,
    Maybe a little to do with that. What, you don't think it is magic? [p]Hee

    Nature Boy,[p]Those are some FINE looking chicken parts! Thanks for sharing...It IS really magical, isn't it![p]That's a fine looking new spring hinge you've got there as well. Ours came late last week, but we didn't get a chance to switch it out this past weekend. Hopefully next weekend we can get it done and start enjoying it.[p]Tonia

    MAC,
    Seals great. Having a little trouble getting the large to seal with the new hinge, but the small works perfect. Shweet one handed operation.[p]Chris

    NB,[p]No surprise about your efforts with chicken, or with about any foods.[p]The spring hinge for the small is truly a gem. It represents a marked improvement in the small. Installation can be a challenge (at least mine was), but at the end of the day, the verdict is "thumbs up." [p]Puj
