At the Lake County Expo, this Saturday, Feb. 22, demonstrations are part of the experience loved by all.
The Expo has seen many different kinds of demonstrations, from sushi, to canning, to makeup tutorials. This year the culinary tricks will continue with a demonstration on how to prepare a beer can chicken. Around the Chartier household the motto “Barbequing’s thirsty work,” is well known. However the recipe long-time Lakeview native Ken Chartier uses for a Beer Can Chicken, the drinks are used for cooking the chicken not to quench the thirst.
Chartier will show how simple and easy it can be to prepare a delicious meal, using a twenty-minute prep time, and an hour cook time, and this easy meal that will have the family begging for more. The best part is, with the specific cooker being used, its almost like you can put it in set a timer and forget about it.
The Big Easy by Char-broil is marketed as a smoker, roaster and grill, which can easily serve as the only cooker needed in the back yard. The dual walled technology a specially designed propane burner, which is fully enclosed. The heated inner wall radiates natural infrared heat, which penetrates the food perfectly and evenly which seals the juices inside. The hot air, which is generated by the burner, escapes out of the cooking chamber before it has a chance to dry out the food. The process leaves the meat moist and tender.
Chartier enjoys cooking of all sorts, but especially loves smoking and barbequing. Having been employed by Ed Staub & Sons for the last seven years, Chartier purchased the Smoker from them, and has been hooked since the first time it was ignited.
This cooking demonstration is slated to take place at the Lake County Expo on Saturday, Feb. 22, at 1 p.m. Attending the cooking demo is included in the price to enter the Lake County Expo.
