MEGAMASTER RECIPE TIPS

Tip 01 Tip 01

If you’re using gas, only turn on the side burners to start.

Tip 02 Tip 02

If you’re using coals, scrape them to around the edges of your chicken. We don’t want heat directly beneath the birds.

Tip 03 Tip 03

Turn on the middle burners, or scrape coals beneath the bird, during the last 15 minutes of cooking.
