    Weber vertical chicken roaster

    I am trying a roasting chicken on a weber gourmet poultry chicken roaster. Kind Iof a beer can style rig I got it on sale at homedepot for 9 bucks so I thought I would give it a try. Any one else try one of these? I know a lot of people like to spatchcock instead but I like the looks of a whole bird.

    Try it out and see what you think. Then try another one spatchcocked! Make sure your temps are at least 325-350.

      Yep, I'm really a spatchcocked guy myself. But I do like a good BC chicken at times. I don't have this weber roaster but they are all kinda the same really. This one does look good though. Guess I have never seen one at my HD or Lowes! Like EdF said... I cook at 350 for my birds. Soggy skin otherwise. I use the fire ring of death method.

        I may have to try that. I like the idea of veggies too, and that looks good.

      considering what they sell for on Amazon you definitely got a steal at the $9 sale price. glad the Chicken came out good. Congrats on the cook and the review of the Weber cooker.

        I was super lucky I got the chicken roaster and a the pizza stone for the Weber for 9 Dollars each at the end of the season when they were getting ready for this year's stuff.

        Is that part of the Weber Gourmet Grilling System, or is that a separate roaster?

      Amajeff99, I don't have the Same Weber Device but I recently Purchased a Steven Raichlen Vertical Chicken Holder with a Large Spice Shaker for the Beer or ❓ I have only used it once (Last Sunday) for a Turkey Breast! It Worked Great inspite of the fact I had a Problem with the Fan on My Temp Cont'r!

        I've been using the vertical roasters for years and I love them. Except for a time or two early on, I never do the beer can thing (and was glad to see Meathead recommends against it). My roasters are just a stiff wire framework with no "walls".

        If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

        The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

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

        Placeholder

        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

        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!

        The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

        The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use.
