I picked up a whole chicken the other day and wanted to do a spatchcock chicken on the egg last night. I've done spatchcock before, but it's been awhile. I applied Dizzy Pig Swamp Venom on it and threw it on the Egg at 400.


It turned out great. Nice heat level to it, but not to hot, juicy and a crispy skin and done quicker than a beer can chicken. Let me just say, I won't be doing BCCs anymore. This is now my go to way to cook chicken.

That's my favorite way of grilling chicken too! Way less time that way, better skin IMO, and you get spices/flavor directly on the meat on the cavity side of the bird since you are basically getting rid of the cavity's membrane. Easier to carve and eat too since you are eliminating all the excess rib bones and breast bone... Nicely done, Grif!

Nice looking chicken. Once you get the hang of cutting it that way it's a great way to do chicken.

I still don't mind a BCC once in a while :-)
