Spatchcocked Chicken

Just pulled a couple of the best spatchcocked chickens I have done yet. I put lime juice under the skin on the breast with a little DP Raging River. Sprayed bird with herbed EVOO (garlic, oregano,thyme, sage, rosemary - whatever I had to throw in it a few weeks ago). Then sprinkled Dizzy Dust on the outside of the bird. Added guava wood, star anise and ginger slices to the coals. Took about 1 hr 15 minutes at 280 - 300F on my XL with raised grid. I got the idea about adding the star anise and ginger from searching the these archives and finding it used in a duck recipe. I have a quart jar full of the stuff and figured someone on this forum had used it. Amazing what is there is you want to look for it. The star anise adds an aroma to the smoke that is interesting.

    When you retire to the Ozarks that should be the meal to serve your new neighbors when you introduce yourself. I think they will quickly take to you.[p]Spring "Assortment Of Chicken Parts" Chicken
