We will also have "chickins" getting some heat on the 4th.
 

 
We will do the same thing for the "Chickin Crispin", but the date has not been set yet.

MM,

   Good looking chickens! Never saw a cooker built like that to hang meat off the hooks. Looks like a good design. Do you have to swap ends on the chickens at some point for even cooking? How do you get air flow? Do you have vents cut in the sides?

    In Cameroon and other parts of west Africa a common cooker was a 55 gallon drum with about a 1'X1' square cut out of one side at the bottom. They'd push long sticks about 3" diameter or so into the cooker. To reduce heat they'd pull some back or for more heat push more in. Only the tips were burning and the rising heat cooked the meat, fish or veggies (often cooked big purple bush plums that way). They'd have a heavy wire, like welding reinforcement, on top with the meat on it. Cooked pretty fast. In 2008 we returned on vacation and at one such "caf" we saw them using such a cooker and they took a sheep stomach, slit it open and washed it out good, stuffed all the organs inside, pegged the cut closed with small sticks about the size of toothpicks, then cooked it. When done they sliced about 1/4" crosscut sections off it so purchasers got some liver, heart, kidneys, etc. The crowd lined up quick for until it was all gone. Was considered quite a delicacy I guess. I'll admit I did not try any - not fond of most organ meat.

There is nothing fancy about this cooker.  Just hang um, lay a sheet of plywood across the top, and let it go for about 4 hours.  There are enough "natural" vent holes to keep the charcoal just right.
 

 
For the last "Chickin Crispin" we had two of them going.
 

 
When they easily separate at the thigh joint, drop them in a Styrofoam cooler and let them "rest".   :)
