    Spatchcock (cut out the backbone) 400 raised direct. If I have time like tonight I leave the bird uncovered in fridge (not a must). Very small amount EVOO and you rub or S&P. skin side up and never turn over. Takes about an hour but NEVER cook to time. Yor want 160 breast and 180 thigh. VERY light with the wood. Take light amount and cut in half. I use half cherry and half pecan chips (total amt less than a hand full). Now this is on a Mini.

    I did one tonight. Spatchcock, raise grid, direct, 400 until breast is 160. No need to flip. Around one hour cook more or less depending on size. I brined mine in kosher salt, garlic, preserved myer lemons, onions, olive oil and pepper corns. MDSH even liked it, and he is not one who likes animals that cluck or gobble. ;;)

    I can't do it on my iPad. Just copy it and put the @ before it on the Mac.

    That's how I do it on iPad. @Tjcoley. But on the Mac I copy the name and paste just after the @. Just can't copy the name on iPad.
