    Very interesting way to butcher your chicken. I'll have to try to cut one that way. ;)

    Congrats on your 11006 thats a lot of typing. :)

    OMG, tell him, it only happens in México & in the US but only after he's tasted it :laugh:
  • BeliBeli Posts: 10,751
    Hi Tim Tks, there's something about having it this way that improves the cook & taste
  • HossHoss Posts: 14,600
    That is some MITEEFINE lookin eats. :) Little Chef did a bird like that and called it "leapfrog" I think.The Croc is a Must DO!
  • elzbthelzbth Posts: 2,075
    That is quite clever - I'd love to do one for the folks at work! Thanks for posting - you've put me on a mission. ;)
  • 2Fategghead2Fategghead Posts: 9,623
    I did a little snooping on the leap frog and here is what I found.
  • Little ChefLittle Chef Posts: 4,725
    2Fat: Yes, that is where I learned the technique as well. You can search leaping frog chicken in the forum. Here is my first post on it...notice the reference to Gourmet Mag (page 102 to be specific)... :)

    Works realllly well on Cornish Game hens!! They really do look like bull frogs! :laugh: Ironically I did a cook with photos just last week with the Cornish Hens, but didn't have a chance to post it. Had to travel to New England for a family funeral. Maybe I'll still post it.....I dunno...

    That gallina is like no other cocodrillo I have ever seen.
    No white triangles down the sides or on the hood. :lol: Looks a lot better looking than the cocodrillos that went up and down Insurgentes. :laugh: :laugh:

    All kidding aside,that is one fun looking looking and delicious cook.

    That is EGGCELENT! I will have to try your crocodile chicken. Great for a fun presentation. Any special tricks you wish to share on cutting the chicken to get it to lay flat. Thanks for sharing. Inlaws are coming for a week so the Egg is going to be busy. Putting on a #8 butt tonight for dinner tomorrow. I will have to try this instead of spatchcock for them.
