I am only one year into this Egg cult and while I am no expert I consider myself pretty handy.  However, yesterday I was hosting a dinner party for 14.  Had bought a nice 8lb brisket that I seasoned with a personal recipe.  Put it on my egg at 200 around 7:30.  Left the house everything was great and got home around 3 to find the Egg temp at 0 and Brisket at 100 (after being cooked in the sun).  Dinner party at 6.  I hopped on the forum and looked up Spatchcock chicken recipes and sent my wife to pick up 7 chickens.  Well, after going on YouTube to learn how to Spatchcock I prepared 7 of these birds using Dizzy BBQ rub and it was a hit.  The point of this post is to put another plug out there for the greatness of the Spatchcock chicken.  It saved my dinner party and was a hit.  I would have included pics but there was nothing left and I was in a cooking fury.  Thanks.

    Great audible-and here's a great link that may save you a few you-tube search minutes down the road-probably the best intro site for ceramic cooking going-(and I have no affiliation-just trying to help): 

    Now about that brisket-chalk that up to judgement....

    For the healthy crowd, try skinless spatched chicken. They taste just as good.
