    That is awesome.  Love the use of the basil and rhe homemade bread looks great. 
  • Re: Temp and roasting time per pound for whole chicken?

    I would go indirect at about 400, and plan for 1- 1/4 hours.  Start checking around 1 hour and finish when the breast is 160.  

    If you have a vertical roaster of a beer can holder I find it works well to get a nice even browning.  I know the whole beer can thing is debunked, but vertical cooking still works well IMO.  If you don't have one of those then perhaps a roasting rack just.   

    I haven't done a chicken this way, but with a whole turkey (too big to spatchcock) I start it breast side down and then turn it over about 1/2 way through. 

    Good luck!

    Great looking bird and meal all around. Had to Google the melon.
  • Short rib sammiches

    This is something we made up as we went along and it turned out to be outstanding.  We wanted to make something on Ciabiatta bread and I saw these cross cut short ribs at Sam's and couldn't pass them up.  

    Ribs marinated in a combination of Worcestershire, soy, spices, cooked indirect about 2 1/4 hours, glazed with Soy Vay Hoisin Garlic sauce.  Sammies built with sauteed onions, mushrooms, peppers and swiss.  Baked on the egg at about 425.   Spread some pub style horseradish sauce on the bread. 

    The side item is just broccoli, tomatoes, parm in balsamic vinaigrette.
