This past weekend the store had whole fryers on sale so I picked one up for Sunday dinner.

Saturday afternoon I mixed up a quick paste of butter and poultry seasoning, smeared it under and over the skin, and put it in the fridge until Sunday afternoon.

I hadn't used the rotisserie for a few months so this was a good opportunity to break it out. I used briquettes and a small amount of cherry for flavor, and cookde it at about 375F.

I also had the bright idea to put a pan of dressing under the chicken. It didn't turn out too bad but since I used butter when I made it the additional butter and chicken fat that dripped down made it just a litte rich. It did get pretty crisp on the top and bottom, though.

I made some noodles to make up for the stuffing and Mrs. Chicken made a salad, but this is my plate. :wink:

Good looking yardbird, Brad. One thing I miss having just the Egg is the old rotisserie from my gas grill. Something about meat spinning and fat self basting it is pretty cool in my book.

Thanks, guys! Griffin, do you know if anyone has ever adapted a rotisserie to a BGE or similar cooker? Instead of a ring I'm picturing spit cutouts that could be blocked for normal grilling, but I don't know if there'd be clearance issues inside.

Looks like everything turned out great, Brad (even the stuffing)! :D
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.
