The wife had been thawing out a whole chicken earlier in the day for last nights dinner when my first shipment of guava wood arrived. Thanks Guava Greg! Then I wondered how I might want to Egg that chicken, certainly with some of that guava smoke. Hmmm, beer butt? err no, wait, spatchcocked! (since I had never done one that way). So I quickly hit the Naked Whiz site to see the particulars of this new method when I saw raised grid. Ouch, nothing to raise the grid of my egg, never done that before either. After a quick scavenger hunt of the house, I came up with a couple of fire brick! Viola! Were set![p]Spatchcocked the bird and covered it with a good coating of Dizzy Pig Shakin the Tree. Cooked it for about an hour at 350 dome temp. When I removed the Thermapen from taking its temperature, a stream of juice shot out of the bird and across the deck! This was gonna be good! And it was excellent, extra moist, tender, and full of flavor. What we didnt eat for dinner was quickly devoured at lunch today. Sorry, no pics. The guava wood is excellent. I think weve found our new favorite smoking wood. [p]So, 3 new firsts, guava wood (strongly reccomended), raised grid grilling, and spatchcock chicken all in one cook. If you havent tried this, please do. Thanks to all who provided the tools and know how.[p]Happy Eggin
