In my case the chicken came first. I wish I knew about the Egg years ago

Ok did a spatchcock chicken last night. In direct Pl feet up. No drip pan. Might have to use one next time, But I figured the PL was new and needed to get seasoned. I added a few chunks of Pecan wood to the fire after it was established.

I rubbed the chicken with some Bad Byron's Butt Rub a few hours before the cook. Roasted the bird at 380F for 1.5 hours. All I can say is dam. I have never had chicken breast meat so soft and moist. The skin was a nice bronze color and crispier than if I had fried the birds.

I had bought some frozen bread dough earlier and it was ready after dinner so baked that alos. Turned out nice as well

  • Yeah I was lazier yesterday and did not take any
  • So. A chicken and an egg are stretched out on their bed. The chicken is not smiling, big ol' scowl on her face. The egg, smoking a cig with a smile from ear to ear, says "well, I guess we answered that question"!

    egg came first. mutation in the gene caused a slightly different animal to hatch from it as compared to the parent. enough iterations, and that animal became a 'chicken' by some arbitrary definition. though the egg had preceded it by a few million years. That, or someone's God pointed his finger at an inert rock, made it an egg, and a chicken was born from it. in either case, looks like the egg was first.

  • For us, it was the Egg, I had banned chicken in the grill before the egg arrived.
