Piri-Piri Chicken

Today I made Piri-Piri Chicken. I followed the recipe by Steven Raichlen – The Barbecue Bible copyright 1998; page 241. I made 2 spatchcock chickens covered in delicious buttery marinade. I also made a bunch of Hasselback Potatoes. Everything turned out great. The chicken marinade/sauce was awesome. I really should never make chicken on the Big Green Egg any other way. It was that good.

BGE Cookies

During Our 8th Annual Memorial Day we made chocolate chip cookies on the Big Green Egg directly on the plate setter. I made a basic cookie dough batter from scratch. I kept the BGE at 350 degrees F while Elizabeth baked the cookies for 13-15 mins. They were delicious. Here are some pictures.
