    I have never spatchcocked a bird, so that will be a learning experience.

    Great Idea on the Patio stones, I had not thought about that.  I was looking at firebrick for a good while but wasn't sure how well it would be oriented on the fire ring to raise the grid up.

    I had considered a Woo as well, but don't know enough about them to make an informed decision.

    As far as starting goes, is there a burn off period with new charcoal that I should just do upfront to get all the extra gunk out of it?  I have the Big Green Egg lump right now since it came with.

    I also haven't had much of a chance to play with temperature regulation yet, however, my girlfriend will be gone looking at Grad Schools for the next 3 weeks or so.  Ample time to ,hopefully, get a good head start!

    After seeing all the food on here though, not sure this is going to be good for my diet! It's kind of funny because that's what the egg was a self reward for (lost 83lbs since Thanksgiving). So many planned cooks for the future, just need to find more time!
