  • 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!
