Borrowed Weber's Way to Grill from my brother the other week. I gave it to him almost a year ago and I don't think he's even looked at it, so I figured I'd see if I could get some inspiration. I was intrigued by this method of cutting into chicken quarters to allow the marinade to penetrate deeper and to allow the chicken to cook quicker, so I thought I'd give it a shot. Something I don't think I've ever seen before

Used Stubb's chicken marinade on them

Then onto the Egg at 375 direct with a raised grate, applewood for smoke

They took about 45 mintues

I think the slashes sped up the chicken maybe by about 15 minutes. Not a whole lot, but I was impressed by how much they helped the flavor spread through the chicken. It makes sense, more surface area equals more flavor, if you don't mind that it looks like Wolverine or Freddy got ahold of your chicken before you grilled it. Wasn't very impressed with the Stubb's marinade. It was OK. Added a bit of sweetness to the chicken, but I don't think I really tasted any citrus like it claimed. I'd probably do the slashes again, but use a different marinade.

I always do that with Tandoori chicken. I have started doing it with all Chix when I marinade. I agree that more surface gives more flavor !!

I have to give that a try. Makes sense and looks great! I had that marinade once before. I remember liking it, but don't remember it tasting all that citrusy either.
