As an added bonus, the day before Labor Day is National Bacon Day and we don’t know about you, but we like putting bacon on anything and everything, so we’ll definitely be celebrating that. It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here
Hey lit. I saw where you posted about cooking veggies under your chickens. I am guessing along the lines of potatoes,squash,or zucchini? At what point do you put them on/take them off? Is there a procedure you follow?
It depends on the veggies how I prepare them. I have been doing alot of smoked mashed potatoes lately where I boil red potatoes and parsnips for 15 minutes or so prior then throw them in a pan under the bird with onions and garlic and some chicken broth and just leave them under from start to finish. I recently did this for a 13 pound turkey so they probably cooked for 2-230 hours. I have also done broccoli, squash, zucchini, onions, carrots etc this way but only under quarter chickens so they only take about an hour and fifteen minutes. If you like veggies more crunchy you can always put the poultry in a v rack to start then just mid cook put the v rack into the veggies. I posted a pic of my thankgiving turkey recently that showed the setup with a spatchcocked turkey on a v rack over veggies if you search my posts.
