No, unless "other Fowl" from "Chicken, Turkey & other Fowl" is a confidential codename for whiskey and grappa!

Seeeeeeya; Chief Longwind of the North
This looks wonderful.
I LOVE wrapping foods with strips of pancetta or speck, or other Italian salumi, but I never dared to do it on a whole chicken... And the "balls of foil" advice is another gem, thanks

Well shucks, I didn't even see that!

The balls of foils is a great trick!
I have even used well washed stones to use as a rack.

Luca: I can eat a whole roast chicken myself

I truly enjoy roast chicken, and of course, we do a roast turkey for Thanksgiving, however on the Sunday following the actual Thursday based holiday in the USA, as it is a laboral day for both of us ... We have a close knit group of expat friends and co-workers from around the globe and we enjoy celebrating ...

I too, wrap bacon slices over the top of the chicken as Chief suggested ... My mother used to do this.

Gives alot of flavor to the bird ...

Have super August Luca,
Ciao, Margi.

Sure do! They need to be of similar height. I have used stones mainly at Rendezvous, when the Old Timer's disease caused me to forget to bring a rack for the dutch oven.
