TIPS

*If you use the EZ-Load Top Bar accessory instead of the H-frame, you can place it in the cooker first and then hang the chicken.

For an alternative flavor, rub the chicken with a combination of 1/4 melted butter, 2 tablespoons lemon juice and 1/4 cup chopped fresh herbs like rosemary, sage and parsley.
