Hi Mickey! Before I go back to the spatchcocking, I want to tell you that we tried your coffee rub tonight on a minute steak roast and it was wonderful! I used regular brown sugar, but I think it would have been easier to use turbinado because it's drier and would mix in more easily. Tomorrow we're doing a spatchcocked turkey breast. I was trying to break the breast bone and found it much more difficult than the chickens I do regularly. I use Kuhn Rikon shears and they cut much easier than any other poultry shears I've used. So......my question is really how to break that turkey breast bone without damaging the turkey meat. Thank you.

Google it. There are videos on the subject, some not so good. I plan on using boneing shears and a boneing knife. Other knifes will used if needed....also I plan on making deep incisions on either side in the backbone before using the scissors.
Mickey do you remove the breast plate and the wishbone or just do the "crunch" method to flatten
Mickey...on the side note of Turkey legs...that's a great idea. Do you just cook the legs with the spatch'd turkey? Maybe on a second level?
Nope, just beside the bird. But, I cook a 12lb bird and have room beside it for the extra legs. If I need more turkey (this is a 90 min+/- cook) I just repeat cook. Turkey legs are sooo good on the Egg anytime of the year (they will be ready before the turkey). Sometimes I like Butt Rub and sometimes Coffee Rub. One other side note: sometimes I will toss on a package of turkey necks with a good rub on them as they cook real fast (call them cooks food).....
I need Mickey's coffee rub mix.
Thank you Mickey! Any recommendations on what I should put it on for a quick(er) lunch?
Don't have much time for lunch. Maybe grill up some boneless thighs with this rub. What would you serve it with? Does it taste to much like coffee? I like instant espresso in steak rubs for sure.
Zero on "taste like coffee".
Thighs and Legs both sound good and are quicker.
I would toss on some sliced pineapple, some sliced red onion and whold jalapenos that would cook quick and make a good lunch.
