Spatchcock help

I'm going to spatchcock my first chicken tomorrow. Is the recipe listed on the forum about right, or are there any tweaks that I should make? Thanks for the help.

    Eggsessed,[p]Without checking the recipe you may be using - they are quite easy.[p]I like to do them 350-375 direct on a raised grid. Should take about an hour to 1:15. Be sure to cook to temp and not to time. About the only way to mess up - like everything else - is to over cook it.[p]
  • Fidel,[p]Thanks for the help. I'll see how it goes.[p]Kent

    Have you cooked whole chickens on any other grill? If so then follow a recipe you like and see if you can tell a difference in using the egg. Then you can experiment, My favorite is season the bird with "Ragin River" Dizzy Pig Rub
