    I do this: guessing you are talking chicken. Cut out the backbone by cutting down both sides and open up. If I have time I leave uncovered overnight in the fridge. If not, no worry. I never oil. I like Butt Rub or coffee rub. Cook direct at 375/400 high in dome. Never turn over, cook skin side up. This will work with chicken, Cornish Game Hen, or turkey.

    I always cook skin side down for 15 min. Then flip for remainder of cook. The skin gets nice & crispy! I've never cooked it at the felt line. It has always been cooked direct at standard level. It is delicious this way!

    12 different ways to do anything on an Egg and 11 are always right (that other one works out fine). I go above felt line, direct, skin up and never turn over. I am just lazy.
