First Spatchcock

da87da87 Posts: 638
Hard to believe it took me over a year to do our first spatchcock chicken, but my wife loves the way the beer can chicken turns out so no need until I ran out of time last night.  Amazed how fast it went - a small bird (4 1/2 before spatch) and took about an hour.  It got a way from me and was a bit over done, but the flavor was excellent.  Raised direct (felt level), 375 dome with one chunk of apple, S&P plus fresh herbs, garlic, and butter, basted twice with butter, white wine, and garlic.  Egg roasted veggies on the side.  Will do this one again!




Thanks for looking!

    I have never done a beer can bird that I was happy with. Never spatch'd one that I wasn't! Great lookin' cook. The vegetables looked especially good! Welcome to the spatch club. =)

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    Thanks @Carolina Q !  We love this version of beer can - although with sausage stuffed under the skin its really hard to go wrong.  http://biggreenegg.com/recipes/smoked-spanish-chicken/I'm going to try this as a spatch next time and see what the outcome is.
