I've done high heat chicken roasting in the oven at 500. Butterfly the chicken, put bed of thinly sliced potatoes in the bottom of a broiler pan, put the chicken on the broiler rack, throw in the oven for 20-30 miinutes. Crisp skin, juicy meat, flavored and crispy potatoes. The potatoes under the chicken keep the house from filling up with smoke. Quick and Good. Never tried that on the BSKD. Think I've hit over 400 on occassion, my thermos cut out at 384. As Phil said I don't know if that high temp would warp the unit or not. Anybody tried it on a Bandera or BSKD?
