There shouldn't be should there?  I just bought a breast and trimmed it up (cut the backbone and ribs off).  I hit the breast bone, but can't get the thing to pop.  Am I just not cutting deeper enough there?

    Correct. Same way for me on both. 400 raised direct and skin side up. I like11/12 lbs and about 80 min cook
    Salado TX Egg Family: 3 Large and a very well used Mini, added a Mini Max (I'm good for now). 

  • I cut deep around the keel bone so much you'd think it would come out. Then flip it and press down to break the ribs.
