This is almost a weekly meal in our house. It’s a healthy meal that everyone eats and doesn’t take too long to cook. After you’ve made it once, you’ll never purchase a grocery store rotisserie again! The Grill Friends Porcelain Chicken Sitter Stand heats up and gives way to a moist tender chicken on the inside and yummy crispy skin on the outside.
1 4-5 pound roasting chicken, preferably Amish or Kosher or Organic
3 tablespoons of favorite dry spice rub recipe, divided
Kosher salt and freshly-ground pepper
Liquid to fill Chicken Sitter; water, apple juice, beer, white wine
Grilling Method: Indirect/Medium Heat
Remove neck and giblets and pat dry chicken with paper towels.
Brush chicken all over with oil and season with 2 tablespoons dry rub or simply salt and pepper. Set aside.
Fill Chicken Sitter about ¾ of the way full with any liquid, beer, water, apple juice, white time. Also sprinkle one tablespoon of dry rub inside the Chicken Sitter as well. Place Chicken Sitter in center of cooking grate and move legs apart so the body cavity slides over the top of the Chicken Sitter. The chicken will appear to be “sitting” on the grate.
Cook chicken for 1 – 1½ hours or until the internal temperature registers 165ºF in the breast area and 180ºF in the thigh. Remove from grill and let rest for 10 minutes before carving.
Note: When removing from grate, be careful not to spill contents of Chicken Sitter, as it will be very hot. Use a pair of locking tongs and grab the bottom of the beer can and place on a platter or cutting board to cool.

NOW IN LIMITED SUPPLY!
Making sure that you do not mix raw food with your cooked food is so important. Elizabeth Karmel, the creator of Grill Friends is very serious about safety and she took a great idea and made it better. Karmel has been giving this tong tip out in classes, on television and on her website and now, you can own your own pair of custom-made Stop-and-Go tongs without the duct tape. The different colors help you to remember which pair of tongs were used for raw food, like chicken, and which are safe to use for the cooked food. Karmel used the international colors of RED (STOP) and GREEN (GO) to make it easy on home cooks (and restaurant chefs) to remember which tongs to use while cooking and which tongs to use once the food is done.
The Grill Friends Super Silicone Stop-and-Go Tongs are now only $15.99 and in limited supply! The 12-inch professional strength stainless-steel tongs have been in the works for years. Grill Friends Stop N’ Go Tongs silicone tips have a beveled edge to make it easier to get under the food and the extra-long silicone cushions on the sided make them comfortable for every hand. Besides working hard at the grill, these tongs are perfect for indoor cooking and the heat resistant silicone tips are safe for all non-stick surfaces.
If you cannot remember which color goes with which Karmel de-bossed the words raw and cooked on the appropriate tongs. When you put the food on the grill, use RED, when you go out to take it off, serve or slice it, use GREEN.

It’s back! Due to beyond popular demand, Elizabeth Karmel’s Grill Friends Silicone-Coated Blending Fork is back and available for purchase at BBQ Pro Shop! The silicone coated blending fork is indispensable in the kitchen! Whether you use it to mix to combine, blend until smooth or mix and blend and stir together this fork does the trick! Most recipes call for the cook or chef to add ingredients to a pot, pan, or bowl and mix them together. What do you reach for when you need to do this? Answer, a dinner fork! So Grill Friends Silicone Blending fork was created by Elizabeth Karmel to be the best replacement to that tool and allow you to do all sorts of things with it in the kitchen or on the grill.
One of the best uses we heard of was as use for pulled pork forks! We therefore started selling them in sets of two at a discount so that people could get some leverage over the dinner fork that most people use. The silicone coating is dishwasher safe and makes for easy cleaning and doesn’t damage non-stick surfaces. The forks sell for $9.99 and people just love them!
Melissa B. of Arlington VA on Amazon.com review titled, “Unorthodox and Useful” says, “I don’t have a grill but use this fork to stir sauces and chili in my nonstick cookware; it blends ingredients more thoroughly and with less effort than a large spoon, but can flip sausages and tenderloin frying in the saute pan, too. The silicone/steel is high-quality, and it’s comfortable to hold and clean. I didn’t expect to like it as much as I do!”

Elizabeth Karmel (@GrillGirl on Twitter) is our big sister, BBQ Mentor and dear friend. We knew her before she became so famous and appeared on NBC in Chicago, look at her now! If it wasn’t for her, we would still be burning chicken breasts on our gas grill! Last June we joined Elizabeth for a weekend at the Big Apple Block Party which is probably as close as a BBQ lover could get to heaven on earth. She introduced us to Ed Mitchell, who makes some of the finest BBQ in the country at his restaurant “The Pit” in North Carolina. Some would say that he defines the “Whole Hog” BBQ and after having many of his sandwiches, I would agree. Here they are in the 2nd and third segments of this CBS Early Show Tailgate special.
