How about doing them in a pit oven? Dig a pit, (optional: line with bricks
or big stones), build a fire in it to heat the pit/stones (4-8 hours). Then
put boards over the ashes, lower whole chickens wrapped in foil (put a wire
loop around them to lower/raise by), then more boards, and cover them with
dirt. Dig them up and unwrap. You can season them however you wish.
I have a dim memory of this. My grandfather's town used to feed the
whole (small) town in Vernonia, Ore. with this method. The Fire Dept. there
or in Banks, Ore. may still do this way of BBQ. We have some folks on the
list that live out that way. Any other clues on this method, folks?
