    Was it tender?  I've not had much luck with large yard birds.

    @nolaegghead good to see you back ,Very tender and juicy and even the skin crisped up first time for that. I left it sit uncovered in the frig over night

    Very nice @bigphil ...I think my problem has been the quality of my birds.  I have great results with small birds, but every large bird I've cooked must have died from old age.... ;)

    Brining is a major difference in spatchcocked chickens -- but i agree that buying fresh local chickens makes a big difference too....

    Nice looking "Frankenbird", that is one almost turkey sized chicken. Noticed that you split the breast bone not the backbone, maybe that's why they stay tender.....I like the root veggies underneath, nice combo.

    Larger birds have not been a huge success for me. Glad yours worked out. It looks good
