Chicken 3 ways

The father in-law wanted me to throw some whole chickens on the egg for his birthday so after some research I decided spatchcock was the way to go for this one (I don't have the beer can stands yet). For variety I seasoned each chicken differently.

1 coffee rub chicken
1 chicken with sticky fingers bbq sauce
1 Jerk chicken (normally make homemade marinade but used walkerswood to save time)

After much debate I decided to go indirect @ 400, 15 minutes skin side down then flip.
1 hour skin up until they reached 160 IT at the breast. Coffee rub far right, Jerk middle, and bbq sauce left.

Side note, I maxed the egg out with 3 five pound chickens! I know I could have fit more using the beer can method but this worked so well I may never change! In the future I will probably try to stick with just 2 chickens at a time depending on the size of the crowd.

They came out perfect and will definitely be doing these again! Thank you to the forum for all of the pointers, I can always count on y'all whenever I need to cook something to perfection!
