Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

  • I love spatchcocked and yours looks great. I only wish the skin got crispier, I have tried leaving the chicken uncovered overnight in the fridge, but it still isnt super crispy.

    Great looking bird!  Good job on the carving as well...got her all pieced up and ready to eat!



    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

  • I keep meaning to leave the chicken uncovered in the fridge, but have not yet.  Got another to do this week and will try!  I did kinda let the temp creep up to 425F for the last 15 mins, so that might have helped with crispy-ness.

    I have a Lg BGE and did 2- 4lb spatchcocked on the grate with the legs up on the platesetter. Cooked at just under 400 for 1:10. Meat was juicy but skin was short of crispy.  Rub was Plowboys Yardbird that is my go to chicken rub.

     

    When you said direct I take that to mean no platesetter, am I correct?

    @porky1 yep, no platesetter. Seems 400 would be enough for crispy regardless, but try direct!
