and got myself a new Large Egg today (+ nest and plate setter). I'm so happy with this thing and I've already had great results with a beer can chicken recipe I came up with on the fly.
1 4.8 lbs Whole chicken
2 Tbs Random chicken dry rub I received as a present a few months ago
1 whole Vidalia onion (skinned and quartered)
1 can Busch Light :(
I placed half the beer in a drip pan along with the onion and inserted the rest of can into the cavity of the chicken. Then I rubbed the chicken with the dry rub and set it in the drip pan. Placing the drip pan directly onto the inverted place setter, I roasted the chicken for approximately 70 minutes @ 350 F. I know that beer can chicken is generally succulent, but this was about the juiciest dang bird I have ever sunk my teeth into.
All I have to say is "WOW!" The BGE was so easy to start up and after playing with the vents for 15 minutes, it was easy to hold the temperature. I see why these things have such a fanatical following. I look forward to talking with you guys in the future and picking your brains for recipes and tips.
