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.

  • Cook for 15 minutes per pound or until the chicken has hit 165 F as measured in several locations.
