First Spatchcock Chicken - Wow

I've been reading all the great posts about spatchcock chicken and finally got to try one tonight. I wish I had taken pictures, but didn't have the time.

Got a 5 pound roaster at the market and cooked it on a raised grid at 350 degrees (dome) direct for an hour and it was perfect. I've never had such a juicy chicken with both breast and thigh cooked correctly.

We'll definitely be doing one of these again.

    My wife says it is the best way we have ever prepared a chicken. She also liked it because the cooked bird was easier to serve than working with a whole uncut chicken like the beer can chicken we made a few weeks ago.
