I have been asked to cook (due to everyone loving the egg) for a bday party this weekend at a neighbors house. I will be cooking prior to the party which starts at 6, and then bringing the food over. To keep cost down they have decided they want to buy whole chickens. Sounds easy as i due spatchcook usually once a month.
They are expecting 19 adults with an even mix of men/women. I am looking for some suggestions on how much chicken or whole birds i may need, and the best way to prepare? I have a Large egg including + adjustable rig and rig extender so plenty of room.
If i can cook all the chicken in one session that would be the perfect scenario. I wasnt sure if I should cut the whole chicken up into quarters, or do them spatchcocked, beer can..etc.. basically im still trying to figure out how much room i will have.
Thanks for any suggestions on this bigger cook, its appreciated.
