Getting the Big Green Egg ready to go


Prepare the Big Green Egg for a direct-on-grate cook. Set the temperature to to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.

How to make the BGE’s Spicy Swamp Venom Blackened with Bayou-ish Chicken


Start out by dripping a nickel size amount of Olive Oil Extra Virgin on each chicken breast. Rub the oil even across the breast to give the spices something to grab on to.


Dizzy Pigs Swamp Venom should be evenly distributed on each chicken breast.


Dizzy Pigs Bayou-ish Blackening Seasoning goes well with Swamp Venom. Simply turn the chicken over and do the same thing on the other side. After that, place the chicken straight on the grate and insert a probe inside them to keep an eye on them.


Allow them to cook until they reach 135 degrees on the inside. When you’ve done that, turn them over and allow them finish cooking.


Continue to turn them once more until the interior temperature reaches about 155 degrees.


Allow the chicken breast to cook until it reaches 165 degrees on the inside. According to the USDA, the minimum chicken temperature is 165 degrees. Once you’ve done that, bring them out as soon as possible to avoid them drying out. This will help to keep them wet.

Which woods go well with chicken to enhance the flavor?

Fruit woods, such as Apple, Peach, or Cherry, are ideal for pairing with chicken. I like to use Apple wood while cooking chicken since it seems to be more readily accessible in shops around me. It has a gentle sweet and fruity taste that pairs well with chicken, as well as beef and pork.

When smoking chicken on the Big Green Egg, another nice wood to use is maple. This also gives the meat a sweet taste. It may also be used to cook other meats including as pork, ham, and even seafood.
