Meadow Creek BBQ42 Chicken Cooker


Notify me when back in stock

This Meadow Creek chicken cooker is one of their best sellers. Grill large amounts of perfect chicken without a sweat. Its flipping sandwich grate lets you turn 40 pounds of chicken with one stroke of your hand.

The top lid gives you plenty of control over a hot fire. Leave the lid open for darker, more crispy skin on your chicken or close the lid for beautiful, golden-brown skin. Height adjustment brackets for the charcoal pan let you bring the heat closer to the grate for steaks or hundreds of hamburgers and hotdogs.

Charcoal / wood-fired. Not available in gas/propane. Holds 40+ lbs. of chicken (1 case of legs and thighs).

We add a $200 shipping charge to this smoker when purchased in store. Due to their weight, Meadow Creek's are very expensive to ship. The shipping charge offsets some of the cost to bring them from Pennsylvania to California. We are constantly working to bring this cost down so that you receive the best value possible. Thank you.
