We’re feeling pretty super, how about you? The big game is fast approaching, and while we love football, we love an excuse to invite people over and cook even more! You too can cook like a champion with recipes from Dr. BBQ’s NFL Gameday Cookbook: Grilled Tuna Sandwiches from Seattle and Baked Brie from New England. Who’s going to win? You’ll have to cook both to find out.

Splatcocked chicken was goooood!

edited November -1 in EggHead Forum
Tried TNW's method last night for first time. An hour before I marinated the split bird in two packages of McCormicks Grill Mate Mesquite...that plus the method of cooking was very good. I used two spatulas to turn and that was sloppy to say the least. Try it for a change.
PS With the chicken all spread out that way it looked like it had been airborne when it hit the windshield and a "splatted cock" is perhaps an alternative name!

    I tried it too. It was good. I cooked it indirect with a Olive oil rosemary, oregano herb rub I make. It was quick an easy and very juicy. Good thing about the indirect. I didn't have to turn it which would have been messy like you say. Thanks TNW!
    B{P :~)

    I had a hell of time trying to grab it with tongs. I ended up saying to hell with it and grabbed it with hands. The dirty bird was coming apart when I was pulling it off the grill. I imagine as the cook went on the turning got sloppier. One of my guests for dinner was a Gamecock alumnus as well and recommended another name. Yaah I'll leave that to ya'll guttersnipes!

    palisin,[p]yeah they are tough to handle. I combined tongs with a spatula. I tried a version by Steve Raichlen in his How to Grill Book. It's a glorified pesto. Very nice.

    As much as I hate to admit it, I watched a show where Martha spatchcocked a chicken. She skewered it X-wise with some of those thick skewers. Sounds like a plan to me.... JCA

  • J Appledog,[p]The skewers are unnecessary in my experience. The chicken stayed flat without them.[p]TNW

  • palisin,
    I flip mine with tongs (got some big one's). I cook it 20 minutes on the first side and 25 on the second. Maybe if I waited longer on the first side, it would fall apart. But so far, no problems flipping.[p]TWN
