I just can't say it enough, I LOVE BGE! Breast were juicy and unbelievable; very easy to cook and great flavor. imageimage

    What rub did you use to get that color?

    I left it in the fridge overnight, uncovered to crisp up the skin.  Right before I put it on the BGE I covered it in EVOO and Fiesta Chicken Rub, nothing else.  I used a combo of Jack Daniels and Apple wood for smoke.

    Looks great!  Spatchcock is my go to now for introducing people to the egg.  So easy and amazingly juicy and tasty.  Glad they turned out for you rabdogg.  What else have you tried on the egg?
    Thanks, Mike "Live in such a way that if anyone should speak badly of you, no one will believe it."

    Burgers, Ribs, Hot Dogs (spiral cut - see pics).  Just got the BGE two weeks ago and can't stop cooking, looking forward to cooking brisket this weekend.

    Nice work- reminds me I need to make another one. Going on vacation with kids next week and going to miss my egg. Anyone ever done a spatchcock on a gasser? I know, I know but I can't take the egg with me.
