Awesome Spatchcock and ABT Failure (PICS)

Baby girl came home from college so Dad decided to cook her favorite meal (Spatchcock Chicken) mom was in charge of the sides. Fortunately she doesnt care for ABT's but SWMBO and I love them.

Prepared them as usual and then dusted with some Dizzy Pig, I ordered some Bad Byrons that should arrive Monday, have never used it but look forward to trying.

Also attempted a Bonaito, its in the aluminum foil. It a white sweet potato that is from Cuba. I guess I should have done more research. You cab bake them but I guess the preferred method is mashing then adding additional flavors like garlic, sour cream etc.. Wasn't crazy about it baked.

Just lightly dusted the 7 lb bird with some Webber Steak and Chop seasoning, it tastes great on poultry.

Tried Sierra Nevada's Seasonal Ale, Flipside, its very good highly recommend. I am also blaming this delicious liquid beverage for the failure of my ABT's.

ABT's were way over cooked and a big disappointment, its amazing what you will eat when you are over marinaded. Have a great weekend and ROLL TIDE ROLL.

Cheers

  • Good Looking assistant you have there! I have 2 little buddies who have to help me (Yorkies) ! I wouldn't call the ABT's failure if you could eat them, you must try again and again !

    Looks great. Did you leave the bird skin side down the entire cook?

  • Looks like great food. Did you do raised direct? What temp were you setting it and how long?

    Tulocay - only did the skin side down for ten minutes, then flipped.

    Bbqlearner - Yes, it was raised direct and I always do my spatchcock between 375-400 for around one hour - according to the weight. If you haven't, invest in a thermapen, best eggccessory created. I always cook by temperature of the meat, never by time.

    Nothing wrong with extra crispy bacon!  It all looks great to me.  


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

  • Thanks. As long as you can eat, looks like a success to me.
