Spatchcock Chicken

Recommended Posts

Well I am back at it after a two week hiatus from my shoulder surgery. Two weeks of no lifting and not sleeping well really had me in a funk but I decided to blow it off today and get back after it with the Joe so I 

picked up a two pack of Organic Chicken and decided to Spatchcock them and thrown them on the Joe. I seasoned one with Lemon Herb and the other with Mesquite and smoked them over Apple. Served them with roasted veggies and had strawberries for desert. Turned out excellent with the apple wood. 
 
I also picked up some Pork Butt at Sams for $1.48 a pound and thought that was a good score.

They look fantastic.  :good:

 

Question. As a direct cook how do you moderate the temps between the lower and upper grills? Do you rotate the birds between levels?

 

I've spatchcocked 2 birds before but on the upper grill only and it was difficult to get two 5 lb. birds on the grill.

I actually cooked them indirect. I had a probe thermo in each one and about 2/3 the way through the cook I switched the top and bottom one. Worked out perfectly.
