Homegrown Chicken In a Rotisserie? How Will It Turn Out?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I have a few roosters in my Unsexed chicks as i can see. I plan to raise them then send them to Camp. I usually put them in the crock pot or oven but want to do it differently when it comes time. Im looking into buying a Rotisserie Oven. I have never used one before! Do i prepare the bird first? Do i Brine It? Please let me know if you have ever done it and how you did it :)

IMHO, rotisseries should only be used for cornishX. They cook other birds too fast. I tried it with my first Freedom Ranger and it was tough.

They need to be cooked low and slow. A smoker works well, or the oven at low heat till the meat starts to fall off the bone.

 

The other thing you need to do is let the meat rest a few days before you cook or freeze.
