Another Spatchcock Success

I haven't posted a picture of a cook in a while, so I thought I'd do my part. This is your standard Simon and Garfunkel chicken. This one is going to be turned in to chicken salad.

I also cooked 2 pieces of Mahi Mahi before the chicken. No pics of those. The family was hungry.

    Looks good! I'll have to add Simon and Garfunkel to my ever growing list of things to try!

  • Since i've been cooking on the grill extender, on top of the adjustable rig, I can't seem to get the breast temp up to 160 at the same time the thighs are 180?  I was thinking of flipping the bird breast down the first 30 min or so.  Thoughts?

    I inject my chickens with "bitter orange" marinade, so i can overcook the breasts (if necessary?) to get the thighs fully cooked to 180 degrees without drying anything out !

    I always cook mine breast side down for 10-15 minutes, then flip for the remainder of the cook. BTW, this bird was skinless. I've been removing the skin on them lately and like them better than with the skin on. It is just as moist and more of the rub gets on the chicken.
