I cookede some'en: Spatchcock,ATB, quasideas

edited 8:29AM in EggHead Forum
First things first. My cable internet has been a peace of $#^* for 6 months, on one minenet locked up the next. Got a "real' cable guy out yesterday who descovered all the relay boxes from hear to the main blacktop were rusted up and needed replacing. For my trouble they gave us something like 40 extra channles on TV. Have only had networks + HBO IN PAST not big TV people. Ok now I have 10 channles of Tanzanea top 40 vidio's and 12 of championship badmitton. I'm thrilled! :laugh: HOWEVER I now have THE FOOD NETWORK for the 1st time. Flipping threw the channles I saw a vision. Stikes woman. You know the Itialian gal. She started talking about "hot soup with permishion cheese ryne to add a smoothness to all the intensity" all the while licking her lips. I felt so dirty! :blush: Running out to check the Egg I nearly triped on the return to catch "the beach scene" at the end! :whistle: Wife says its all kind of "preverted" but understands the fuss. Got to love 18 years of marrage!!lol
Anyway I did manage to cook some'en and since it seams that more than 4 or 5 pics lock some folks computers up with a "red x" will post in a series as still cooking.

Since a lot of newbes on board I showed how to spatchcock a chicken. Ginger,cummin,salt,pepper,pepricia,chillie pepper rub with fresh garlic cloves and lime juice under skin. Half the rub went under skin and half on the skin after coating with EVOO as we all know rub on the skin is just for looks. Right??! Indirect at 300 with presimmon wood till breast temp of 165 at the coldest part.






  • Good looking yard bird JL! Wish mine had that good looking color. Think I use to much wood smoke. Taste good just don't have the golden brown like yours.

    Since my jelepeno plants died and Wally World is afraid of law suits for belly rot had to get Anahime peppers and juice them up with my own Carribian Reds. Munster cheese, sausage and cut up "Reds"

    OK Love AZRP shrimp. Yard bird is great with garlic, limmon and pepper. Why not AZRP chicken breast in quasidias??? I have added "neat" way to add "heat" all the way threw a dish without "hot spots". Put my garlic in the press and added fresh Chribbian Red pepper on top to combine the flavor. Pepper heads know a little "Red" goes a looooong way for normal folks!! :laugh: 300 pit till breast temp of 165. Cooking the quasedias comming up.

    The Egg is cleaned, food is eated and beer is drank. Time to shower and hit the hay as only 4 hrs sleep since 11:00 yesterday and got 160 mile round trip to ride to the old farm tomorrow to mow the grass at the farm house.

    Everything was good but the yard bird came off sooner than expected. Normally cook it at 275 but bumped it to 300 and cut 1 1/2 hr off cook time.

    Just a pic of the grill kifter my ridding partner who is a gas refinery weilder bade for me. It balances perfect so if I need to add smoke wood during cook you see all I have to do.

    One quasedia left from the whole meal. No one left hungry AND IN THE END THAT IS SATISFACTION FOR THE COOK!! ;)

    I thought you were in the States?!!? Haven't spatchcock a bird in a while. Got to be the easest, best cook you can do.

    When I was in college people used to say to use a dictionary to look up words.(before computers and spell check) I told them what good was a dictionary if I was looking "cat" under the "k"'s!!! :lol: To old to care and not enough gumption to give a hoot!! :P

  • JLOCKHART29JLOCKHART29 Posts: 5,897
    As you can see I sort of said to heck with the chores today. Will pay for it tomorrow!! ;)
  • BeliBeli Posts: 10,751
    That looks really good.. how many did you feed?
  • JLOCKHART29JLOCKHART29 Posts: 5,897
    Yep. There called Carriabian Reds. Relaited to Haberneria's. Got four bushes of them about to turn from green to red at once. The differance in Habernerias and the Reds is about the same as saying sticking your hand in a wood fire hurts worse than sticking your hand in a grease fire!! :whistle:

    There was four of us. Me and wife and riding partner and his wife. They are more like family than friends. Neather of us can have kids so when we were in our 30's we ran togeather while every one else was raising kids. They are the kind of friends if I broke down 1000 miles from home all I have to do is call and he'd call in sick to come get me with a trailer if we couldn't get it fix. His wife I call "sis". People think we are as we fight and bicker just like siblings but I love her to death! :laugh:
  • BeliBeli Posts: 10,751
