I tried your new method of 350* for an hour w/o flipping and it was a bit dry, it was a small bird.
I think I remember someone saying something about using a raised grid, but did not see that on your site.
Do you recomend a raised grid?
What did you use before, 20 min one side and 25 on the other?

    <p />Wardster,
    Yeah, I used to do 20/25 skin side down then up (or was it up then down). I have always used a raised grid. Visit the website (link below) and find the chicken section of the recipes page for a photo and current method.[p]TNW

    The Naked Whiz,
    Well, that explains it. I did not use the raised grid. I am going to get myself some firebricks, just as soon as I drve by a place that sells them and I remember to stop.
    Do you do ALL of your cooks on a raised grid?

  • Wardster, not to upstage The Whiz (the inventor of the spatchcock chicken) but I do the bird on the lower position (tried it both ways) and I had a problem with the first few (dry). I now cook them for 45 - 50 minutes and they are perfect. Just a suggestion.

  • Wardster,
    Some yes, some no. I do it mainly for convenience. When I do fish filets, I put them on a porcelain grid and put this on a raised grid so I can get the damn thing out of the egg. Steaks I do down on the lower level. [p]TNW

  • Bully,
    Don't forget that I also invented the telegraph, chocolate ice cream, and a few other things that escape me for the moment......[p]TNW
