Chicken over meat

Just wanted to find out what you guys think about cooking chicken over pork, or beef. I hear that it is OK but to me that just isnt enough proof to do so. What do you guys think?

Seems to me I remember a post about this. This is going to get good.

Depends on what you're cooking under it and when you put it on. If you put chicken over something that's going to take longer than the chicken to cook it'll be fine. Here's my rationale, if you pull the chicken when it's at a safe temperature and edible, then whatever juices that dripped out of it will also be done, especially if the cut of meat under it takes several additional hours of cooking after the chicken is done. However, I would not add a chicken overtop of a cut of meat that is close to being finished, unless you're going to leave that cut of meat on the cooker until after the chicken is fully cooked.

I think the bottomline is it comes down to common sense. If you put a chicken over top of a cut of meat and a half an hour later you pull the meat under the meat, then chances are you're going to get very ill.

Chicken is low on my pecking order. It may not hurt anything as Larry said but I don't see myself putting chicken over a cut of beef.

I agree.

It has been brought to my attention that it is safe 'basically just like Larry said" and if common sense is used then I agree it is OK but why take the chance? I'm not the brightest crayon in the box but I dont see me cooking chicken over a brisket anytime soon. chicken drippings, no thanks.

Why did you ask the question then?

I don't like the flavor of chicken droppings on beef and pork.
