Has anyone tried cooking two of these on a Large at the same time? I'm a bit worried about even heat distribution.....

    I meant BUTTERFLIED chicken, or spatchcocked.

  • Wardster,
    I cooked two chickens at the same time last week & they came out great. I had the same concerns as you so I rotated the location of the birds when I turned them.[p]Lewis

    I always do two at a time. See my recipes page at my website for a photo:

    Try using a raised grid with firebricks. A weber with handles as a second grid works great. Open dome, rotate quickly and close. Accounts for hot spots.Two chickens will work fine.

    I've done 2 of them at a time, direct, at 325-350 and both came out fine. I cooked them for 30 minutes breast up, the 30-35 breast down. When I turned them I just made sure the part which was closer to the outside of the egg was now closer to the center. It all worked out fine!!
