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!

First spatchcock chicken

I did my first spatchcock chicken yesterday, it turned out great. I did 2 chickens and pork steaks along with fresh veggies from the garden. I cooked the chickens for 1 hour at 400 degrees on a raised grid then removed the grid and put them on the lower grid to get the skin crispy. I probably won't do that next time because the chicken was so tender it almost fell apart. I'm really enjoying this egg cooking.

    Looks great. Did you brine the chicken first?  Also you can let it sit naked in the fridge for a few hours then put it on the egg - It will make the skin crispier.

    Looks very nice. I always do mine direct like you do but raised. It will do two things. First gets away from the fire down below ( I cook at 400) and you don't have to watch it as close. Second the dome helps cook it more. You did a very nice cook. To raise just get 3 split firebricks or an Adj Rig or Woo from Tom.
