    Going by what breeds you have in your barnyard... ask your [email protected]@ for her recipes for LONG and LOW temperature cooking. [​IMG]: Another option would be to find the original " Joy of Cooking" cook book. [​IMG]

    Cornish cross were bred to be eaten. They are tender no matter what you do! You don't need any special cooking methods for them as they are young & succulent. Just search the net for chicken recipes & they will taste awesome no matter what you do with them.

    We just did ours as well.

    One is a going on the barbie tonight and it is super easy all you need is a beer can


    1 (4-pound) whole chicken
    2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    2 tablespoons salt
    1 teaspoon black pepper
    3 tablespoons of your favorite dry spice rub
    1 can beer
    Remove neck and giblets from chicken and discard. Rinse chicken inside and out, and pat dry with paper towels. Rub chicken lightly with oil then rub inside and out with salt, pepper and dry rub. Set aside.

    Open beer can and take several gulps (make them big gulps so that the can is half full). Place beer can on a solid surface. Grabbing a chicken leg in each hand, plunk the bird cavity over the beer can. Transfer the bird-on-a-can to your grill and place in the center of the grate, balancing the bird on its 2 legs and the can like a tripod.

    Cook the chicken over medium-high, indirect heat (i.e. no coals or burners on directly under the bird), with the grill cover on, for approximately 1 1/4 hours or until the internal temperature registers 165 degrees F in the breast area and 180 degrees F in the thigh, or until the thigh juice runs clear when stabbed with a sharp knife. Remove from grill and let rest for 10 minutes before carving.

    wow sonew123 was on here today too . . .!!! lol great to see both of your names.

    here's the low down; let the birds rest out side of the freezer (either before or after freezing) for at least 24 hours.
    some people highly reccomend brineing - not my favorite, but when I do I use a gallon of water and a 1/4 cup of Cavenders seasoning. OR 1/4 cup salt, 1/4 cup sugar and a really healthy does of five spice powder.

    My kids favorite way to have chicken is spatchcocked; cut the backbone out, open chicken like a book & flatten, put in backing dish with vegis all around, drizzle olive oil and seasoning over all and bake at 500 degrees for 30 min.
