2 large, skin on, bone in chicken breasts, wonderful

One breast was 25 oz the other was 28 oz.

Absolutely delicious. No pics. I have had recipes that looked great and didn't taste too swift. I have also had meals that didn't look too great but were wonderful.

This looked fine and tasted wonderful.

Cooked four inches above gasket level.

Gasket level temp of 365 +/- nailing it, dome temp of 400ish.

Placed on grill with skin side down for 6 min 30 seonds, and then turned over.

Cooked to an internal temp of 160 degrees. One piece took 37 minutes the other took 47 minutes.

Seasoned with my spatchcock chicken rub. 

My wife and I split the 28 oz breast and it worked fine for the two of us.

Seasoned with homemade rub

2 tsp garlic powder or 2 Garlic cloves cut up 
1.5 tsp Lemon peel seasoning powder 
6 packets  True lemon granular crystallized powder
2 tsp Pepper
2 tsp Butter seasoning powder 
1 tsp Sea Salt/crushed up 

Tasted delightful

    That chicken recipe sounds like it would be very tasty as the protein on a pizza

    We buy those split chicken breasts w/ribs at Walmart every time I see them in stock.  Cook 2 at a time on the grill, and use for various recipes during the week.  They are cheap, and have great flavor! And easy to cook!
