Chicken for weekday lunches.  It's becoming a bit of a regular Sunday thing...
(Way better than store bought roast chicken - Cheaper too).

If the sneaky "Chef's Sample" is anything to go by, my Chicken, Hommus and Salad lunchboxes this week will be a good distraction from the work at hand.

Janny with camp oven cooking you use coals rather than flame for heating because with flame it is hard to regulate your heat. With the Snow Peak style of fire pit that would not be easy to do but not impossible of course. It would be difficult to add or take away heat for example. I do use a longer fire pit, where I can have coals one end and flame the other, to cook wet dishes where only bottom heat is required. For baking or roasting, where coals on the lid of the oven is required, I use a seperate fire and place coals and ovens to the side of the fire.

Well, being as it is Sunday, the chook is in the CO minding its own business.

In my usual way, I decided to experiment, but of course, I have broken the golden rule of experimentation. I have changed more than one variable.

First and foremost, I decided to put some sage and onion stuffing in the bird this time. (Change 1).

This necessitated the use of extra heatbeats due to the increase density in the cavity. Usually 26, this time 28. (Change 2).

As the King Brown Pub Chicken method results in lots of juices in the CO, I decide to use a trivet to keep the stuffing out of the liquid, If King Brown reads this, I do beg your forgiveness. (Change 3).

I also changed the arrangement of the heatbeads. As I use a kettle BBQ as my camp oven brazier I usually have the bottom heatbeads under the lower coal grille. As I am using the trivet and the bird is further away from the bottom of the CO I have arranged the beads (x7) around the sides of the CO on top of the coal grille. (Change 4).

What could possibly go wrong?

I was able to beat the cyclone  Grin

Came up alright.

I used a jerk spice mix from a local producer (Jay's Chilli Bar).

The stuffing was a packet mix from the supermarket.
