  • We've been doing chickens at 250 pretty much as a rule now. Crisps up great, good smoke too

    wish i had a ready source of pecan

    Nice! The smoked breast is delicious in chicken salad.

    @JustineCaseyFeldown, I found it at Home Depot a while back. Chunks only. Might have been when they were changing suppliers though. Haven't looked since, but you might check it out. 

    There's always this place (free shipping).

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    It's just sitting on a round rack that came with a crock pot about a half in high.

    It's my wife's favorite way. For me, spatchcock is just a lazy mans way to grill chicken parts. No comparison in the flavor and texture IMO

    Agree/Disagree.  Both my wife and I love smoked and we both love spatchcock.  When it comes to preparation, it's apples and oranges.  Sometimes you have the time to do a full smoke, othertimes 60-70 minutes is all that's available.  There's nothing "lazy" about it.  The Egg's best attribute is it's versatility, and that includes grilling.

    Didn't mean to imply that people who spatchcock chickens are lazy but, it is much easier to snip the backbone out of a chicken, squash it down and throw it on the grill as opposed to cutting up the chicken into eight pieces then having to babysit those pieces while grilling. I like grilled chicken also. To me nothing smells better than chicken grilling over charcoal. I usually cut my chicken into eight pieces because I like to dunk them into bbq sauce or Alabama white sauce and char a little and it is easier to do with individual pieces.
