My issue with spatch is there is a big flap of thigh skin that is covered and thus flabby

    Nothing better than a tasty, crispy yard bird on an egg! You were lucky IMHO as I used to accidentally knock over my beer butt birds! Then I purchased some ceramic Willie's Chicken Sitters which are nearly impossible to knock over even if you tried!

    Shortly thereafter I switched to "splating" mine and have never gone back! As for the thigh skin flap I merely cut that off!
