Here are a few photos of a Spatch Chicken I did today.  I got this recipe from Naked Wiz and it is basically 375 direct for one hour or so depending on the size of the chicken using a raised grid.  Perfect every time!

Here is the before photo.  Coated w/ EVOO and Kickin' Chicken Rub!

I used 3 small landscaping bricks to raise the grid about 4"


Still going throughout a thunderstorm!


Finished Product with a little BBQ Sauce added!


This is what I use to keep the pounds under control :-)



  • Nice pic of the bricks,  thanks I wondered how people were getting the bricks to raise the grid.  Chicken looks great too!  When did you put the BBQ sauce on?  Also how much do you ride?

    Hi Lizzie!  I put the BBQ Sauce on about 5 -10 minutes before I pulled it.

    I'm consistently averaging 90+ miles per week over 4 days.  I rode a 100k (64mi) this past Saturday and that gave me 124mi or so for the week but I don't usually get over 100mi each week.

    I use bricks great. Why pay more for something that is free and works just fine.
  • Wow great for you, I hope to be a cyclist soon, just the road bike purchase is steep!  I guess kinda like the egg.  I have a cannondale,  hybrid, its very nice, but can't do the distance anywhere near a road bike!

    Nice Jeep. Do you post on I also have a TJ
  • Nice bike.  Egging and Biking, two expensive hobbies but both are lots of fun.  I guess you can set long and slow in the morning, go for a long ride and come home to a good lunch.

    I like that bike! That is also my thing egging and riding a few hundred miles a week.

    Stupid quesiton for a newbie like me, but what kind of bricks are those?  Did you have to break them in half?

    They are just simple landscaping bricks that you can get at Lowe's or Home Depot,  I did break them in half.
