<p />I did another rotisserie chicken tonight. This time 500ish degrees, modified indirect for one hour. The last 15 mintues, the skin really let loose with the fat and started to crisp. I pulled the bird when the internal was over 170.[p]I got the 500 degree cooking temp from the local Sams and Costco. Both stores cook their birds for 60 to 80 minutes and to an internal temp of 180. The next time I will let it go a tad longer. [p]Dizzy Pig's shaking the tree rubbed under and on top of the skin is fantastic on these birds. [p]Tom

    Sandbagger,[p]Hmmm...I have often wondered how to include a motorized rotisserie into the BGE. Although, probably not required jusy seems like a nifty addition. Sooooooo when you say rotisserie are you referring to what that term really means or just the style? If you have truly figured out how to build in a rotisserie into the BGE I would love to see pics.[p]Thanks

    Wow, I've usually stuck with 275-325. I'll have to give that a shot.
    Theres a Spanish marinaded chicken recipe in one of the weber books thats really good where you cut an orange and lemon in half, partially juice them, and stuff them inside the bird.
    I've used the John Henry's chicken tickler rub in conjunction with it, and they came out really good.

    <p />byc, All I did was build a frame and use aluminum foil for a filler. It leaks, but no worse than my fried gasket. The foil is very forgiving and easy to work with. I've held 225 degrees for most of a Saturday with the rig. After building this one, I have a few ideas to improve it for my medium. I want to try pit beef next, but chicken is quick, easy and so good. [p]

    Sandbagger,[p]Now that is way cool!!! Thanks for sharing!

  • eroc, for your safety and your egg's gasket, you need to be careful. 500 degrees with grease should not be taken lightly when flame/fire is involved. t
