Well I am going for Spatch round 3! My first Spatch was perfect. 2nd went into file 13. 3rd one is now on the Egg. I got my Woo from Tom at CGS (simply awesome Tom thanks!) and also got my High Que SS grill grate from Amazon. Cleaned the Egg all the way out and put in all the new pieces. Brought er up to 375 ( with both dampers almost closed....sweet High Que thanks!!) and now just put the Chicky on!! Very anxious and watching intently to see how this on turns out! HUNGRY!!!!

    The only thing you can do wrong is overcook it. Well I guess you could undercook it too but those are definitely the only two things you could do wrong...no wait you could oversmoke it but I digress

    It turned out excellent! I think that I will not tuck the legs into cut sections in the skin any longer as the joints deep in where the drumstick meets the thigh was just a little bloody in one leg. I think that this is preventing the heat from getting directly to the joint. Lesson learned. Still great Spatch though! The juices just ran out of it. Loved it! This Egg would make spam taste good!!

    Did you tie the legs together? You might want to leave them loose and spread them apart a bit next time. Looks good!

    Nightwing you are just wrong about spam. For spam to taste good you must put it on fresh white bread with mustard and onion. The spam must be just out of the can.

    Congrates are in order for your spatchcock..... Look at next time about 10 min's before done put your best bbq sauce on it... Very good as well.....

    GACK!!! I agree about the spam
    :-&

    Thanks Mickey, Steven. I thought about separating the legs as well. I usually just cut a slit in the skin at the bottom of the breast and tuck the drumsticks into the slits. I think I will stop doing this from now on. Mickey your idea about the BBQ sauce seems right on as it made my mouth water thinking about it, thanks! Appreciate the feedback! I'm learnin!

    I got a roasting rack right off the back, started out cooking chick's on the rack.   After seeing the enthusiam on this forum for the Spatch approach - tried it - will be a long time before I go back to the rack again.   Have done 4 or 5 in the last 2 weeks - love how easy, fast, and tasty they turn out.

    Great job - looks delicious.
