First Cook (Spatchcock Chicken)

Well..finally got a chance to break in the new Egg that was bought last weekend.  Did a spatchcock chicken with olive oil and dizzy pig on it.  Cooked indirect at 350° for 1.5 hours, took off the fire when internal temp reached 170°.  I must say, that was some of the moistest chicken I have ever had.  My wife was skeptical about it until she tried it, now I think she's going to have me make dinner on the Egg from now on.  I cannot wait to do my next cook, thinking of heading out to the store tomorrow to get maybe a pork butt or a tenderloin.  A shout out to everyone on here who gave me some advice earlier in the week... it was definitely appreciated.  Pictures of the chicken to follow.... as soon as I find where my kids put the USB cord.

    Welcome and congrats on a good first cook.

    Makes me happy when a new egger makes a delicious first meal.  Your handle means "child iron" in german.   at least that's my drunken interpretation is this late at night.  :)  welcome to the forum!
    This is my signature line just so you're not confused.
