My wife and I catered a wedding reception a few weeks ago. I met a guy there that was boasting about being a grill master, but he wouldn’t eat BBQ chicken, not even his own. After the meal was served, he told me his son kept pestering him about trying the chicken until he tried a piece. He said he was skeptical at first, but he went back three times and said it was the best he has had in years.
The BBQ42 deserves all the credit, it makes it easy to make great BBQ chicken. And to think I got to primarily cook brats!

I have owned 6 or more of these over the last 20 years and cooked for weddings and banquets. It consistently cranks out top notch chicken. Definitely one of the BBQ worlds best kept secrets.

I have owned your chicken cooker for about 5 years and cooked for parties of 400 and I can truly say that I have never burned up a grate full of chicken. This grill makes perfect chicken every time. It is also very well made.

Had my cooker for about 2 years. Without a doubt it’s the best grill I have ever owned. Always cooks delicious and juicy chicken. I love the flip tray. No more scorched hands from turning the chicken!

This thing cooks as advertised! I put in about 20 lbs of charcoal,lit it in several places and then evenly spread out the coals. I put on 4 spatchcock chickens and flipped them every 10 or 15 minutes. The chickens were done in 1 hour flat and turned out golden brown and juicy. I am looking forward to a lot more cooks with this rig!

Purchased one of these in October 2018 for retirement parties at my police dept. Definitely a work horse. The Chicken is amazing and the ability to cook 40lbs at one time saves time.
Makes the best grilled chicken ever

Just a short note to say thank you for your incredible chicken cookers.
We won the World Championship Hot wing competition and Festival in Memphis this past weekend, cooking on the 42 Chicken cooker using Wing grates.
This would not have been possible without your fantastic cooker.
