I collected a parcel from the post office today. It contained my Cobb Cooker griddle plate, dome extension ring (and chicken roaster).
I was expecting the items, so had bought a chicken while out grocery shopping to trial the new upright roasting rack cooking method.
I'm using both cookers tonight. I started eight heat beads in the first one at around 4:30pm. I also made a liquid mix for the moat using water, crushed garlic, lemon juice (and the remainder lemon) with some rosemary sprigs. After fiddling with the chicken roasting gadget for a little while, I located it onto the grill plate. I then sprayed the chicken with olive oil and dusted it with some mixed herbs. It went onto the Cobb, with extension ring and lid, at 5:00pm.
I started six heat beads in the firebox of the second cooker at 5:30pm or so. At 6:00pm I put carrot, pumpkin and sweet potato in around the chicken. (I topped up the moat and checked on the heat beads just prior to adding the vegetables). I used the fenced rack on the second cooker's grill plate to hold potato pieces and a few onion wedges - which were also started around 6:00pm.
It's 7:00pm now and all smells wonderful but I expect it will be another hour or so before we eat - sadly!
