Evil Rooster in a Crockpot!

Who doesn’t love a tasty (and healthy) barbeque recipe?! As a family trying to eat healthy and be cautious about unhealthy industry feeding standards (like Confined Animal Feeding Operations or CAFO), we have always wanted to grow our own food including meat.


We tried SO hard to live with an evil rooster. We let him grow up and thought he might be a good addition for our laying flock’s protection. Well, we were wrong. After he attacked me and knocked me flat on my A*S*S, it was time to go. Yes, it was quite embarrassing and I was hoping the neighbors did not see this pathetic sight…me. When I fell over, all I could think to myself is, “Get up woman! This thing is going to gouge your eyes out!”. I know that sounds dramatic (and I am sometimes). So, anyway…


Back to the recipe, even though he wasn’t a good addition to our flock, he was a tasty Sunday dinner! Also, I got a new Honey Barbeque Recipe out of it! This one I had to write down! We have been raising laying hens for a year and a half now and it is amazing to walk out and grab eggs out of your own backyard! Have you ever imagined what “sunshine” tastes like? It would be a homegrown egg.


Honey Barbeque Recipe:

  • 4 cloves of garlic (pressed)
  • 2/3 cup of raw, local honey
  • 1 cup of organic ketchup
  • 1 cup of amino acids
  • 1 tsp of dried oregano
  • 4 T of fresh parsley (chopped finely)
  • 1 T of hemp seeds (optional)


Whisk ingredients thoroughly to combine. Pour over chicken pieces in a crockpot. Turn crockpot on with cover for 4 to 5 hours on LOW or 3 to 4 hours on HIGH. (Let the internal temperature of the chicken get to 165°F be your guide on cooking time). Hemp seeds are optional (can be replaced by sesame seeds).


This was a great meal and a recipe I am going to keep with me! For more information about the dangers of eating animals that are forced into Confined Animal Feeding Operations or CAFO. Please visit this link CAFO.
