Hey Novice,

Great job on the bird! So you didnít use some sort of can stuffed up the...rump of the chicken? That steam adds even more to the inside of the bird. There's nothing like it. I'm glad you're doing great. Beer butt chicken with an actual can or something made this a famous dish. If you don't like the idea of a can, look at Doc and DM's posts on this subject. They have some pretty neat ideas/gadgets for this. You will never go back my friend Smile

He speaks the truth Novice it's better with something shoved up it. lol
I have decided to do the Christmas turkey in the same style as I had a holder made for it a few months ago. Tell ya what if things get better at work I plan on having one or two more made and if this happens I'll send one your way.

You will have to forgive the welding though. I am able to source the stainless plate and the 2" pipe if you know someone who can do the welding for you.
Pay the postage and I can mail it to you.

Many thanks Dr.KY, keep me informed (though I'll have to try & find a welder).

I have done chickens on a can in the past, I shall go back & give it another try! Does your stand accept a can inside it?

Did you ever get to put the eyelets into your Frontier in the end?

These are built for the bird to sit on without a can inside in fact they are a a little smaller that a beer can but work just as well ( and you don't have to see what the chicken" got up to" on the grill as much.lol

I haven't installed the eyelets yet due to being so busy with other things plus I need to figure out how or even if I need to remove the plastic sections.

I can tell you the way I did it, I put as large a cross headed screw driver as would fit into the socket for leverage, got some pliers onto the outer metal connector & peeled it off (like opening a sardine can). I just snapped/pulled the plastic part off with the pliers, then repeated the process with the next layers. You are left with a thin metal barrel (where the connectors & insulation rings were sat) that you don't want, so I roughly cut it down with a junior hacksaw & tidied it all up with a file & some emery paper. If you are worried about this let me know & I'll do a couple for you & pop them in the post, it's really no problem a 10min job.

Hey Dr. sorry to hear your feeling rough. Just a thought, I did the eyelet mod on a frontier, the stackers are just painted metal, I did not know you had an Excel, I guess the stackers on the Excel are the same, but check they are not porcelain coated (like the base) before you do this mod as this can chip when you drill it.

Hope you're feeling better soon! I'd send over a bowl of chili, but don't think it would be any good by the time it made the swim.
