How long would you guys feel comfortable putting a spatchcocked bird in the fridge before egging?

Thanks,

    Overnight uncovered is all it takes to get the skin crunchy.  Maximum length?  Dunno.  If it starts smellin' funky, that's too long :)) I suppose it depends on how old it is to start with.

  • Thanks Nola. Grilling for the Bama/Mizzou game tomorrow @ 2:30. I was hoping it wouldn't be too long to prepare the bird tonight.

  • I put mine in the fridge last night with a light sprinkling of salt to make sure the skin is crispy.
