Raging River Chicken on the Char-Broil Big Easy

I’ve been using seasonings from Dizzy Pig for years. Everything they make is packed with flavor and is of the highest quality. Dizzy Pig has a wide variety of spice mixes available, like this Raging River seasoning that is absolutely perfect on a chicken roasted in the Char-Broil Big Easy. I made a beer-can version, but you can skip that step and just season the chicken and cook it as-is in the Big Easy. Either way, you get a great maple-infused herby flavor with just a slight spicy kick that is out-of-this-world great.

Raging River Chicken on the Char-Broil Big EasyRaging River chicken tastes (and looks!) fantastic! The skin is crispy and, well, addicting. Very addicting. Dangerously addicting. So is my rotisserie-style chicken, also made on the Big Easy, which you should also try. It’s amazing how great poultry on the Big Easy is, with just a few store-bought ingredients.

Raging River Chicken on the Char-Broil Big Easy

I use the Char-Broil folding chicken roaster to hold the beer or soda cans securely. If the beer you're using is only available in a bottle, just empty the contents into an empty beer or soda can.

Green Chile Rubbed Chicken on the Char-Broil Big Easy

When I saw that AlbuKirky Seasonings was having a sale, I jumped on it. I knew that Kirk’s Green Chile rub was going to be amazing on a chicken. So I cooked green chile rubbed chicken on the Char-Broil Big Easy. It had that perfect hint of green chile peppers in each bite. You’re not talking spicy here, just wonderful pepper flavor. No need to add anything else.

I used a whole chicken but you can of course use pieces or halves or heck, just wings. This right here is why I have a Big Easy. Well, three actually.
Green Chile Rubbed Chicken on the Char-Broil Big EasySeriously, the skin on this green chile rubbed chicken on the Char-Broil Big Easy was crazy good. You have to exercise serious restraint. I recommend having a friend on hand to keep you from eating the entire thing before it’s even done resting.

Also try my Colombian-style chicken on the Big Easy.

Stubb’s Chicken Rub Chicken on the Char-Broil Big Easy

I use a lot of products from Stubb’s, from sauces to marinades. I’ve been very happy with them all. That’s why I decided to use some of Stubb’s chicken rub on a whole chicken and drop it into my (awesome) cooker, the Char-Broil Big Easy.

The Big Easy cooked the bird in 15 minutes per pound.The Stubb’s seasoning added a little sweetness. It also added a mild mustard flavor. I’ve rubbed beef in mustard before but never added mustard flavor to chicken. It was fantastic!
stubbs-chicken-rub-chicken-on-the-char-broil-big-easyI did make my chicken a beer can chicken by adding a bit more Stubb’s chicken rub to a can of beer that I then inserted into the chicken. You can skip that part if you wish, or use an empty soda can with chicken broth added. There’s no wrong here because the Big Easy cooks chicken right every time. The skin always comes out crispy and dangerously delicious, to say nothing of how tender and moist the meat is, dark or white!

Stubb’s also makes a chicken and citrus marinade that is also great on chicken cooked in the Big Easy.
