    Very nice Mickey
    I raise my kids, cook and golf.  When work gets in the way I'm pissed, I'm pissed off 48 weeks a year.
    Inbetween Iowa and Colorado, not close to anything remotely entertaining outside of football season.

    Fryer or roasting bird? Is there a difference with either when spatching?
  • MickeyMickey Posts: 17,545
    Fryer and this is a non water added bird.

    A modest bird. The legs were together. Nice, Mickey. Haven't done one on my mini. Probably took a bit longer because the legs were together, right? 350? I'll try it soon.

    @jlsm the time was about the same. The legs not tied together, just packaged in a slim package.

    Yep, must be a hen, she got her knees touching. What is the 'mini advantage' in this case? Burn less lump? Less time to get the bird on? I do these all the time on a large in like 45 minutes but I do have to get a lot of lump hot, dome's usually 350-400F (spread eagle!).
  • jlsmjlsm Posts: 913
    The advantage? Same with all mini cooks: Comes up to temp and stabilizes quickly, uses less charcoal, and it's just plain cool.

    Your obfuscation does not ameliorate the implied slur, and it shows a certain vacuity in your tone as you vaunt your recent cook. Muh fuh.
