    I use a 'beer can chicken' fixture w/o the cans...just a vertically roasting chicken with an open grid frame where the can would go...just right..

    I agree. In the end, the food doesn't know how it was cooked; it either tastes good, or it doesn't. Make good food.

    I like the flavor from the whatever can of whatever I use. Like I can actually taste the beer or Sprite when I do it that way. So I don't know what that video says, but if it says to not use your grill a certain way to cook and enjoy meat then that video is wrong. Cook and be happy. Looks great by the way.

    Beer can chicken is roast chicken. How can it be bad? Are there better ways to roast a chicken? Ouch, who kicked me under the table...

    Read the spot about beer can chicken before. I think more important is the end result and taste that comes from trying things different ways. If it something you enjoy and others do too, who's to say what is the best way all in all. I try all different ways to cook all of my meats. I think this site alone proves their are many ways to cook and enjoy what you produce. I am not offended by no means and just wanted to try it on the GMG as I had just purchased them and have been trying different cooks. I will be doing a spatchcocked chicken soon, but there was no denying those two birds were delicious!!!!

    Anybody?.... Anybody?.... Anybody want to take this one? Alright I'll be the bad guy... lol

    Psst... dmdaboyz ... There is this kind of unspoken rule about Beer Can Chicken around here (almost right up there with "if you boil ribs then the terrorist win")... Meathead and Dr. Blonder debunked the whole Beer Can Chicken thing proving it is more of a gimmick and myth and don't really promote it as the way to cook chicken... They may even say something along of the lines of: "Beer belongs in your belly not in the chicken's @$$... So stop wasting good money on good beer and take the d@mn beer out of the chicken's @$$". Check out their article on it.

    JOKING & RIBBING (sorry for the pun) aside though I like the Sriracha chicken idea... Definitely going to have to try that one.

    Also if you can check out Chris Lilly's Loaf Pan Chicken... always gets some good reviews. Great quick video... although I'm paranoid and use a digital thermometer to temp my chicken instead of relying on the joint twist.

    Spatchcock is going to be my next endeavor. I debated that before I cooked these. The garlic and sriracha was great. A little spice at the end of each bite. Had it rubbed down inside the skin so every bite had flavor. Never did a spatchcocked chicken before so if you have any info that will help, feel free. Thanks

    Have you ever tried a spatchcock, no beer can? How'd that sriracha and garlic turn out? Methinks that would be quite tasty.

    Beer Can Chicken on the GMG!

    Did two chickens tonight on the Jim Bowie GMG. Ran it at 350 degrees til the birds were at 165 degrees and the twist of a leg showed they were ready to eat. Included the pic so you can see how moist they came out. One seasoned wit

The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

the good one grill

The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!
