    IMHO spatch cooks quicker and more evenly, ie the breast isn't dried out befoer the legs and thighs are done. Shouldn't really be any taste difference if you keep the rub and sauces the same between the two unless you are pouring on the smoke . Spatchcock takes less than 20 seconds, with sharp kitchen shears cut up one side of the backbone then the other to remove. Flip over so bones are facing down and push down on the breast until you hear the keel bone crack. Easy peasy. Honestly can't say that I remember the last time I did a whole bird on the Egg, 'cept for a honking big turkey that would have been to big to spatch (it was given to me, I'm not a fan of buying big turkey myself and neither is @Mickey)
    +1 I prefer spatchcock for the same reasons. And, it IS easy peasy.
  • Re: -OT- Dryer Sheets for Mosquito Repellent- IT really works!- OT

    Here is an idea that seems to work well when out on the deck.  A homemade mosquito trap.  I thought about doing something similar for flies using sugar water or something.

    HOMEMADE MOSQUITO TRAP:
    Items needed:
    1 cup of water
    1/4 cup of brown sugar
    1 gram of yeast
    1 2-liter bottle

    HOW:
    1. Cut the plastic bottle in half.
    2. Mix brown sugar with hot water. Let cool. When cold, pour in the bottom half of the bottle.
    3. Add the yeast. No need to mix. It creates carbon dioxide, which attracts mosquitoes.
    4. Place the funnel part, upside down, into the other half of the bottle, taping them together if desired.
    5. Wrap the bottle with something black, leaving the top uncovered, and place it outside in an area away from your normal gathering area. (Mosquitoes are also drawn to the color black.)

    Change the solution every 2 weeks for continuous control.

    My condolences, on your wife's grandfather.  All the best to the family.
  • Re: More lump talk

    How true. And, others have also noticed that the quality of the large RO bags (8Kg) seems to be consistently better than the smaller bags (4Kg). Go figure....
    That's probably by design.  They can cram more smaller pieces in a smaller bag than big pieces.  It's probably automated that way.
