    Thanks a bunch,but one question. I see that the chicken is raised off the main cooking grid. Is there a water pan under it?? Thanks

    No, it is direct. What I have done (I guess I need a picture! ha ha) is take place some firebricks on their sides on the grid. Then I place a second grid on the firebricks. This raises the second grid about to the level of the top of the egg's opening. I did this to make it easier to flip the bird (which I no longer do, I do the whole cook skin side up) but some folks have said they got burned chicken doing it on the regular grid and that raising the grid helped prevent burning.[p]TNW[p]

    The Naked Whiz, I looked at the spatchcocked chicken on your site and it appears to me that once you cut along the backbone, those little fellows could use more bracing!

  • Wise One,
    Lol, I bet when ole Whiz read that he was flipping the bird once again.

    Minuteman, naw, TNW no longer flips the bird (during the cook).
