was in a local BBQ store and saw this narrow-shaft stand perfect for upside down chicken, la LS mode, BUT with 13% taxes there's no way i'm gonna pay almost 20 canuckian bucks for it...

    Very interesting adaptation! I have four of those beer can chicken sitters in stainless steel, and often wish they were more narrow. I may sacrifice one and give this a try.

    Did you have any problems with the open ends piercing through the chicken, instead of the chicken slipping over them?

    BJ, haven't tried it yet but i'm optimistic it'll work out...notice the top ring has been removed so the three prongs are 'flexible'. i can squeeze them before inserting, upon release they should spread out and push against the neck cavity. in fact it may not be a bad thing to deliberately pierce one or two prongs into the bony areas around the neck (not the breast) for better 'grip'.

    I don't see any reason that it wouldn't work.....
    You improved on it ;) .
    I was looking at one too, but thought it was too spendy also.
    So for $9 more I went with one of the cast iron, vertical roasters. I love it. :woohoo:
  • davehempdavehemp Posts: 109
    Where did you get the CI vertical roaster?
  • CanuggheadCanugghead Posts: 6,194
    this one perhaps?

    not sure if you can do upside down chicken though.

    That is the one I got, but I don't remember where I got it! And it was $29 :P Not $39.
    OTOH, I had to pay shipping, so I wouldn't doubt it cost $39 all well and done.
    I'll have to do some checking with regard to where I got it.
    Later.....

    Jerry and Dave, I wasn't recommending the place to buy it, just a quick random google image search to show the picture.
