Cooking Directions:

Prep vegetables as shown above, place into a large mixing bowl
Lightly oil the veggies and toss to combine, season lightly with Rub-A-Dub and set aside until needed
Remove chicken from the cryo-vac package, rinse the cavity and put into a large pan to drain
Rub the entire chicken with a light coat of oil
Next season to taste with Rub-A-Dub, season a little inside the cavity as well
Place the veggies into the bottom of the Lodge Dutch Oven
Place the chicken on top of the veggies
Prepare your Big Green Egg as shown below
Pre Heat your Big Green Egg to 200˚ and (if desired) load with your preferred smoking wood chunks (Layer in the wood chunks to create an even sustained smoke flavor)
If using EGGgenius, add it now, setup ambient probe and adjust temp to 375˚
Add the ConvEGGtor legs up, ADD a convEGGtor drip tray and then place grill grate on top of convEGGtor
Close dome and Adjust Temp to 375˚ (adjust bottom vents and top rEGGulator)
Place the Dutch oven with chicken and vegetables on the grill grate
Load the EGGgenius probe into the thickest part of the breast
Close the lid and cook at 375˚ until temperature reaches 165˚ internal
Using oven gloves or heat resistant gloves, remove Dutch oven from the Big Green Egg
CHEF TIP:  I remove my chicken right at doneness temp, then allow any carryover cooking to help ensure the dark meat reaches temp of 180˚ at the thigh
Carefully remove chicken, slice and serve with roasted veggies
Slice and enjoy with our Au Jus or Horsey Sauce
