  • Anyone used a Chicken Brick in their WFO?

    Just curious if anyone has used a chicken brick - enclosed terracotta pot for any meat, supposedly creates awesome flavor, meat is juicy and succulent.

    A picture of one below (not related to us is the website )

    Soak the brick for 30 mins in cold water, then you put the brick into the oven when cold, fire it up and gradually get the WFO internal temp to 200C. Leave for the weight of the meat and should be soooo good.

    A local shop has some on offer and I will get one but just wondered if anyone had used one here?

    My wife is going on a girlie weekend away, leaving my son (14) and I to feed ourselves. We have already started planning a WFO weekend! Thought I could include some chicken brick in their some where...
    Where can I find logs? I need more!
    Finishing the WFO will come after the barn is completed http://flinthousebarn.co.uk/

    Sounds like a fancy version of the Chinese dish Beggars Chicken. Basically a chicken wrapped in clay and baked. Very moist and tender .
    A did one years ago in a home oven. That recipe had the clay replaced with a flour dough with high salt content. It turned out well and was a great bit of theater breaking open the dough casing and suddenly getting the wonderful smell of that chicken.

      Turned out really well, so tender a flavour some. Was a lot of mucking about though. Prepare the chicken wrap in banana leaf then the "clay" of 50/50 four and cooking salt. Recon that chicken brick would do the same thing. Notice that its not like your normal pot the lids 1/2 way down the side so there's heaps of room at the top to hold the steam. A normal earthenware pot with the lid on the top the steam would escape
      A tangine works the same way but the conical lid stops you from doing a full bird

          I got one and a chicken got it home and found the brick broken SO I had to cook the chicken in a pan - was lovely and juicy though.

              Hi Graham
              I often use the beer can chicken method. Crispy outside skin, tender, juicy inside. Works every time. Youtube have info if you aren't sure what I'm on about.

                Geoff,

                We have done the beer can chicken too, this is slightly different. I got a brick but it was broken the other weekend, got a replacement and plan a weekend outdoors! So I will put some pictures up.

                  I own a Romertopf cooker too which I have used in my normal oven and do play to use it in my WFO.

                  They work great and well suited to a WFO I think.

                    This is what we did, posted it in "What we cooked last night".

                    Just make sure the brick is soaked in cold water for a minimum of 10 minutes or it will crack. I soaked ours for longer.
