The rite of passage - Splatchcock Chicken

Someone earlier this week prompted me that I had never tried chicken with this method.   Last night I did.

Was absolutely wonderful - will not go back to the roasting rack.

    This turned into Pizza - along with a brisket pizza with the last of my leftovers from my last brisket.  No pics of the pizza - was too busy cooking and eating.

    I used the parchment paper for the Pizza this time - worked wonderfully.

    Doing a spatchcock this afternoon on BGE raised grid extender. Planning to put a tray of potatoes, peppers, and onions underneath to cook in the chicken drippings. Should I still go raised direct, or you think the direct heat will be too hot on the veggies? Veggies will be in a throw away foil tray.

    Chicken looks great, Boatbum. I will post some pics of mine tonight.

    I see you have signed up for Salado. It will be good to meet you in March. Are you going to bring your Kilt? Sounds like about a doz going in kilts.

    Waiting to see how windy its going to be...  Sometimes in March that north wind can be brutal...

    I did this with an upright chicken, and in a thicker pie pan, not a foil tray, and yes the veggies were pretty much toast...
