Spatchcock marinade - am I the only one who does this?

Pretty much every post I've read about spatchcock chickens say to rub the chicken. I usually marinade mine, and use no rub. Does anyone else do this? If you haven't, give it a try. I think you'll like the results.

    Marinade please. I have 2 chix at home for tonight, so I might use your method. Actually, I always do two, and cut one up for chix salad for lunches, so i might go both ways!

    I've brined mine before, as well as brined a spatchcocked turkey on occasion, as well and injected marinade......any way you cut it (as long as it's down the spine) they are awesome!!

  • Toe 49,
    Spatchcocked turkey!!! What did you use to open it up.... tin snips ;-)[p]
    Actually how big was the turkey and how long did you cook it?[p]

    This is the recipe I used (link). I did a 14 pound bird Christmas day followiong this recipe and it took just under 3 hours. The stuffing is very good.....probably the best I've ever had......I just followed the directions as is except I added so hot sausage (6 oz) to the stuffing recipe for a little extra zing.

    While I normally like to make my own marinades, I find that I really like some store brands of lemon pepper. Lately I've gone almost exclusively to doing game hens instead of chicken. Buy them in two packs for $4.96 so everyone has their own bird. I do them on an elevated grill so they don't get too crispy.[p]LR
