Sounds nice apart from the garlic bit messing up the taters :p

Doesn't the plastic burn? No plastic taste to the chicken?

nope, you can boil water ina plastic bag.

Thus you "stew" the chicken in the bag. http://www.metacafe.com/watch/731626/fire_proof_bag/

It works nicely but the grill has to be cold before you place the bag+chicken on. Also I have found there must be enough marinade and also it tends to be easier if there are no open flames only red hot coals :D

Ding! We've done this a few times, with good results (think soft juicy chicken). I wouldn't recommend it too often, since the bags tend to have little holes burnt into them and I fear toxic materials mixing with the food.

lol, eat any microwaved food?

Same effect, or worse im sure ;)

Also if you eat any mcdonalds you will get less toxic materials from eating this everyday for a year, than eating 1 McDonalds Jnr cheeseburger.:p:D

Chicken and wors. I was however in more of an advisory roll with a frosty in the hand sampling the progress :)

Two pork texan steaks + a deboned chicken + chops + chili wors on Saturday, chicken potjie on Sunday. A weekend isn't a weekend without meat, and lots of it :)

Funnily enough, I also did a deboned chicken on Sat (first time). Must admit it was *really* nice. I did it on the gas braai and was amazed at the amount of fat that came out of it - I'll do it on charcoal next time.
