My first spatchcock chicken

After a lot of research, i had to try it.

I went for a direct setup (witch i did not have), so it ended with 3 soda cans and a bottom grid from a weber :-)
I fired the egg up to 350f
Took out the chickens back, coated it in olive oil, and a home made (sugarless) rub.

Onto the egg - and took it off at 167f internal brest.

It was very good - but not a lot better than my normal on the egg.
Think i will try with more heat next time - or any suggestions?

    I did mine at 375. Also, the skin gets more crispy if you leave it uncovered in the fridge for 24 hours before cooking.

    I want to try this, my next cook. In my opinion a BBQ'd chicken is one of the best meals going....
    Do you like the BGE Guru unit? Is it worth the $$. In Canada I have seen them only once in a store and it was $399.>>>> OUCH!!!
    Let me know.
    Cheers - The Bird looks great.

    Will try at a higher temp next time.

    JKL - I am VERY happy with the DigiQ - no hazzle with the temp - instead you can focus on all the other factors instead.

    You could buy direct from BBQ Guru?
