New Egg/First Cook (Beer Butt Chicken)!

My new large BGE has finally arrived! After reading many posts here in the forum I've decided to try a beer butt chicken for my first cook tonight. I will post pictures after everything has been finished. But for now, here are a few pictures of the egg sittin' pretty!

    You are going to get a lot of suggestions to spatchcock the chicken, mostly from Mickey

    Thanks Tailwind! Looking forward to it.

    Steven - I debated to spatchcock this one, but opted to do a beer butt instead. I will certainly give it a shot though!

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    It doesn't matter how you do it, it will be awesome. I do most of mine inverted on a beer can stand.

    So... The drawback I see for spatching is the number if birds I can fit on the grill..  I was able to do three using the butt stands...

    Thanks yall! Everything went pretty well for my first cook on the BGE. Thanks to countless entries on this forum I was able to cook a beer butt chicken without any trouble. Here are some pictures of the event from beginning to end.

    Skid - it wasn't too bad. Next time I'll probably cook closer to 400 degrees for a little longer. I had it on for about 1hr15min this time. It still had more juice than any chicken I've ever cooked.
