Fridays spatchcock chicken and apps

Tonight we did pig shots, ABT's, Spatchcocked Chicken and Yukon potatoes. I brined the chicken last night with a gallon of water cup of kosher salt, 1/2 cup of sugar and 8 smashed garlic cloves. I also followed @saltysams yukon potatoes in pan under the chicken. Everything was excellent it was my first time brining a chicken and will be doing it from now on. The yukon gold potatoes were to die for, evoo salt and pepper, I did have spacers between the pan and plate setter, the chicken was seasoned with Texas chicken tickler and sat in the fridge all day in a pan to dry out the skin which turned out crispy for the first time. The chicken was plump and juicy with a slight garlic flavor. Had friends over and the couldn't believe how good everything was. Thanks to the recipes on this forum and all you guys make me look real good.

    Great looking cook. No wonder everyone enjoyed it.
    It's not a science, it's an art. And it's flawed.

    That all looks just perfect.  I am sure the taters were amazing.  I am a big fan of the pan of veggies under the bird.  It is a great way to get a meal on the egg at one time.  I am definitely gonna try those taters.  

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

    Booyah! Glad you liked it! You absolutely made my night. My first "nod" on the forum.

    Good call on brining the bird, too. It's a but time consuming, and requires advance planning, but its easy and makes a world of difference.
