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!

Pecan wood +Spatchcock Chicken = WIN

Made a spatchcock chicken last night like I have done may times.  Used Jake's coffe rub (like many times before).  But this time I threw in some Pecan chips. 

Result - AMAZING - Skin was darker than normal, very crispy but the chicken had a buttery taste that was really good.

I know pics or it didn't happen.  But it did - trust me.

BTW - On Topic subject.

    Great to know, I just picked up a bag of pecan chunks this week from gander mountain. Can't wait to try it.

    Did you brine the chicken? How long was it in the egg? Temp and direct/indirect?

    I have pecan chunks so maybe I can try it these days.

    Just an idea for next time. Do the same amount of chips but a 50/50 mix of your pecan with cherry. Have used this for years and sure works here. The cherry gives an even darker color. . Also next time substitute a small spatchcocked turkey done the same way.

    I will have to give this a try if I can find some Pecan.  Thanks!  


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