Chicken Cooking Instructions

Chicken Cooking Instructions

 

The 70 & 100 Lbs box can cook up to 18 whole chickens and the 50 lbs up to 10

 

1. Secure the chickens (Breast Down) between the meat racks, using the 4 S-Hooks, and place it on the drip tray. Next, add a gallon of water to the drip tray. For extra flavor, you can add beer, wine, and spices to the water; I personally like to add a cup of our La Caja China Mojo Criollo.

2. Place drip tray inside the box, cover the box with the ash pan and grid, add charcoal and light; once lit (20 - 25 minutes),

spread the charcoal evenly over the charcoal grid; Cooking time starts now. __________________ (write down the time)

3. After 1 hour: Remove the ash pan. Place it on top of the wire rack or tube handles.
Flip the turkey over (breast up). Attach probe from the meat thermometer on the thigh.

4. Now cover the box again and add more charcoal every hour until you reach 175 F on the wired meat thermometer.
