Spatchcock Chicken and Apples

Did a Spatch chicken tonight because the wife wanted chicken alfredo tomorrow night so I was killing 2 birds with one stone. The greatest part was I put the bird on and told her to watch the temp and dont let it go over 250 because I had a haircut appointment. She sent me temp readings every 10 minutes (Bored I guess). But temp went to 200 and I told her the do and donts over the phone of bringing the temp up. She listened and got very excited when the egg temp went up and stoped where I wanted it.

Chicken came out as expected (Greatness!!)

Did some Apples that were sitting in the fruit bowl that had been therer for a few weeks. Stuffed them with a mixture of Brown Sugar, Spices, butter, and pecans. Did them for almost and our at 250. Didnt get a picture of final product because when I brought them in wife was carving them up and had them smothered in Vanilla Ice cream.

Cant wait for Chicken alfredo tomorrow and see what happens.

    I did the same thing with my wife and ribs yesterday. She said, "wow, this thing is easy to control".
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    Mine said the same thing. I am scared she might want to shoot my guns next or mow the lawn.

    My wife stays inside and cooks.  Watches cable TV cooking channels all day and night.  She knows EVERYTHING gastronomic and I have no need of this internet connection.  The outside fire is my Alamo.  I'll go down like Davey Crockett before I share the outside fire.
