Roasted Chicken

Grilled (roasted actually) a 5+ Lb. Free Range Chicken utilizing the Emile Henry Flame Roaster. FLAME®. This is one of the latest of Emile Henry's newest innovations in ceramic technology and it is designed to work on the barbeque, (gas, charcoal, natural wood or electric cooking), in the oven, and under the broiler at temperatures up to 750° F (400 C).  It will hold up to a 8lb chicken with room to put potatoes and vegetables around the chicken at the base to soak up the delicious juices.

What makes this cooking vessel so special? Made of ceramic, the chicken roaster will cook your chicken more efficiently as the ceramic will maintain heat and cook from the inside as well.  A Juicy Chicken = reduced fat; the ceramic retains heat, and the design actually cooks from inside out.  It has a pouring spout to use because the basin collects juice or offers room for roasting vegetables

Paul Prudhomme's Poultry Magic
Unsalted Butter

This is the simplest it can possibly get…Rinse chicken, coat with unsalted butter and your favorite rub; we used Paul Prudhomme’s Poultry Magic tonight. Set your Big Green Egg up for Indirect (plate setter legs up) and stabilize the temperature just short of 400 degrees. Close lid and cook to internal temperature of 180 at the breast; do not undercook breast temperature! Cooking time varies by size of bird but will be in the range around 60 minutes. Remove and let rest for 15 minutes, slice and serve.
