A Favorite Way To Roast Chicken, A Giveaway, and A Sale!

Tumbleweed Pottery makes a great chicken
cooker that I've loved using for years. 
Now I'm giving one away!
Original Chicken Cooker

free Chicken Cooker or

 any equivalent product from their online catalog.
Enter by commenting as many times as you like. 
Deep Dish Chicken Cooker
But wait...there's more! 
Tumbleweed is giving my readers a discount all 
during May for 20% off!  
(When combined with their already 10% off 
special thru Mother's Day it will give you 
30% off all of their products.) 
Stock up on gifts!
To get the 20% discount use the 
coupon code: maydays.
 Rinse out and pat the chicken dry.
 Stuff with your favorite ingredients. Today I used: 
garlic, fresh herbs, orange slices, onion and S&P.
 Fill the seasoning well. So many choices here!
 This one was butter with herbs and lemon juice.
 Now, put the chicken on the well, legs down. 
It will be nice and secure unlike a beer can.
 I buttered and seasoned the outside.
 Plug the neck hole with foil to keep the
steam and juices inside.
You'll probably need to remove one of your oven
 racks. Put the chicken inside...
THEN turn then oven on to 350 and roast
for about 1-1/2 hours. No need to baste.
Always place the chicken and the
cooker in a COLD oven! 
I popped a few sweet potatoes along side. 
 It uses the concept of the beer-can chicken. 
Liquid from the seasoning well steams the
chicken from the inside out.
Create your own combinations. 
Lots of recipes on their website HERE
The chicken browns beautifully on all sides. 
The fat drains off.
Skim the fat from the well and you'll be left with
 lots of natural juices to spoon over the chicken.
 The skin is nice and crispy and the meat is
tender and juicy.
You'll love it! 
These are beautiful handcrafted pottery pieces
 made in the USA by a family owned business.
You'll love that too!

Enjoy!

  1. I recently found your site - loving it! I had a similar item (was made of some type of metal) but didn't hold the chicken up as well as I would have liked and was a pain to clean. I always had a problem with splattering in the oven too during the roasting time (so messy!) I suppose there is no way to avoid that though?! I would love to win!

  15. I would love to use this little booger..I've often wondered how moist the chicken would be done this way. I have a Tajine (sp) domed shaped gizmo that rolls the steam back into the meat,,but this seems like it would be fun, and puts the goodies on the inside. wow. I've always like the hand made pottery look. something about its earthy flair...

  21. It looks fantastic! I've done the beer can thing on a barbecue, but never considered being able to do it inside, in an oven. Great idea!

  22. Yes, I certainly would LOVE it, Rita!! I've done the beer can chicken, but it does sit on there rather precariously. This looks so perfect. Your chicken looks great. I guess the cooker could be used on a grill, too? Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  43. I'm glad you posted this. Someone sneakily left one of these cookers in my house without the box or any note saying what it was. My guess was a chicken roaster, so did a search on "pottery chicken roaster" and found it was a Tumbleweed cooker. Then I found your post. Will be trying it out soon!
