Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

15lbs. of Spatchcock

Spatchcocked two 7+ lb. capons last weekend for my in-laws. Seasoned under and over the skin with Montreal Chicken spice. Cooked them raised direct at about 300* until the breast was around 160* (took about 1 1/2 hours). Forgot to take pics when they came off but they turned out great! There were only 6 of us eating so we had plenty left over. I made some chicken salad with the white meat leftovers and have the dark meat in the freezer. I'll probably make enchiladas with that.

Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    Those are some big yard birds!  It looks great!  Next time I do spatch I am going to make extra just for chicken salad.  



    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg wing.

  • @Griffin... I usually just "wing it" on the chicken salad. Mayonnasie, of course. I had about a tbsp. of sour cream so I also added that and a shot of yellow mustard, diced celery and some sliced grapes. I also added some fennel seeds for a little extra flavor. The Montreal Chicken Spice had already given the chicken enough salt so did not need to add any more.
