    Here you go..


    You pretty much got it.  Cut out the backbone and flatten the bird, apply your favorite rub, and cook.  You can go direct or indirect for this cook.  I think the most common is a raised direct setup.  Cook at 350-400 ish until it is 180 in the thickest part of the thigh...around 40 minutes to an hour depending on the size of the bird.  


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

    Slice the eggplant in 1/2 inch slices.  Stack up with a paper towel between each slice to absorb the moisture out of the eggplant.  Coat the eggplant with olive oil both sides, S&P, and on direct at about 350, get the slices about 1/2 way cooked and place a slice of tomato on each eggplant slice, topped with a slice of cheese.  Cook until cheese browns.

    Sounds like you have already gotten great info on the spatchcock part but for the eggplant I always cut about 1/2" thick and put a thick coat of sea salt on them and let them sit for a while. This will draw a huge amount of the moisture out of the eggplant. Just remember before you cook to was the salt off and coat with the oil of your choice. I use EVOO I do a dish with eggplant,tomatoes and feta cheese. I put he eggplant on about 7 mins before the tomatoes. Once the tomatoes start to soften up I will stack them on the eggplant for about 3 min and then add the feta( fresh basil, if I have it) till the cheese is melted

    I usually do not. I generally do mine indirect at about 400 or so.

    I also do not flip the chicken and cook indirect at 400 for an hour or so.  For me, it is the best way to cook a whole chicken.
