    just watch to make sure you dont overcook them.  (burn).  i do a raised grid, at 350-375.  try to flip once, and usually marinde in whatever is in the pantry/refrig.

    Do you have a thermometer? Cook to 165 and they'll be perfect.

    Chicken is a breeze on the egg. Everyone has there own method. I stabilize the egg at 350-375. I will cook on each side for about 5 minutes until I get the color I want. Then I will thermapen and pull off at 165.

    I can't recommend seasoning cause it changes everyday. I can't wait to try Dizzy Pig!

    Something with cumin is always good (to me).

    Boneless skinless, or on the bone with skin? Regardless go to 165 as stated.

    Just cooked my first spatchedcock chicken and it turned out great. Check out my post "spatchedcock chicken and mustard". Two 8lb chickens took 1hr 10 mins to get to 165 degrees in the breast.
