Chicken recommendations ?

Have a chicken to cook tonight and I am looking for some inspiration. Thanks

    Spatch? Cut the back out raise the grill to the felt line 350, season your bird skin side up let it go till it's done, or indirect place a pan of vegetables under your bird with a gap between the bottom of the pan and the platesetter. The drippings bast the vegetables and they get real yummy.
    BBQ since 2010 - Oh my, what I was missing.

    sounds like a good plan !! thanks
  • Try standing it up on a beer can stand minus the can of beer. Rubbed down with a mild all-seasoning. Cook around 350 for about 45 minutes to an hour. Temp in the breast about 180 I think. Melts in your mouth.

    i am torn between the spatchock and the beer can ( minus the beer can ) .
    if only i had 2 chickens
  • We routinely do multiple chickens on the grill, "you-know-who" likes the garlic herb, i like the jamaican rub or just a generic all-season. Plenty of room on there for more than one, and you're gonna need it.
  • Spatch all the way.
