Meadow Creek Grills With Rotating Grates Make it Fun and Easy to
Grill Perfect Chicken for Crowds Every Time!
Known as "the Chicken Cookers", these Meadow Creek grills with rotating sandwich grates take barbecue fund-raising and backyard grilling to a whole new level. Double-sided easy-turn grates make it easy to turn the entire rack of meat with one hand. The stainless steel grates never rust and are easy to maintain, for many long years of use.
There are two common problems when cooking bone-in chicken: Over direct heat, your chicken will tend to dry out before it's done; on an offset smoker, unless you are really good, the skin will be rubbery. The distance between the fire and the grate in these Meadow Creek grills eliminates this problem completely. There is no better way to grill chicken for crowds known to man!

Customer Stories From Meadow Creek Users
"That is the best chicken I ever had; how do you keep it so good and moist?"
I started cooking barbecue chicken with my dad in the late 40's and 50's. He would cook for our church and fire company fundraisers. After my father died, I started barbecuing chicken for the churches or any other fundraiser. I have cooked chicken for Relay for Life and for band camps, but mostly for churches.
I purchased my Meadow Creek cooker in 2005. This is one of the best investments I have ever made. This would be a great business for someone. The best reward is when someone comes up and tells me, "That is the best chicken I ever had; how do you keep it so good and moist?" Thanks, Meadow Creek!

"I cooked 75-80 lbs of wings per hour without getting Carpel Tunnel in my wrist."
I just wanted to let you know that the BBQ42 that I purchased from you this past Friday is awesome!
The first time I used it was the very next day, cooking chicken wings at Pops on The River and they turned out great. It helped make our vending debut in Chattanooga a big success. Within minutes of the wings placed on the cooker and the smell working its way through the crowd, I booked an event in September and a private party in 2 weeks!
I was able to cook 75-80 lbs of wings per hour with ease and without getting Carpel Tunnel in my wrist from turning each wing. The consistency with each batch was seamless and they were cooked to perfection.
Today I grilled some burgers on the unit and was truly surprised with how juicy they came out. I will be in touch with you soon about the griddle option for this unit to explore how versatile it is. Again, thank you and I will send some photos of my BBQ42 in action at our next event.

Why a Meadow Creek "Chicken Cooker" BBQ Pit?
- Quickly and easily grill large amounts of perfectly done chicken with a chicken cooker from Meadow Creek. The large capacity of our towable bbq pits and their easy-turn double-sided grates makes cooking chicken fun and easy.
- All Meadow Creek bbq pits / charcoal grills have locking double-sided pivoting grates that makes flipping your chicken quick and easy. These grates have handles designed to conveniently and safely turn the meat or remove it when the cooking is completed. Simply grab a handle and turn it with one hand or lift both handles to remove the rack from the grill. That's all there's to it!
- Meadow Creek doesn't cut corners when it comes to quality. All our grills feature rust-resistant, easy to maintain stainless steel grates. For this reason, you may notice a price difference with our competitors. But don't be fooled! Regular grates like you will often find in other cookers begin rusting after one use while stainless steel grates in Meadow Creek grills never rust!
- After all the fun is over, now comes the dirty part. Or is it really dirty? Removable ash pans in our grills make cleanup a snap.
