I've always burned first then spatched for both chickens and turkeys.
I wouldn't think spatchcocking first would affect the brine time though, but I've not done it.

I'd guess closer to 4 hours at 300, but google cooking times to double check.
I know spatchcocking will help with more even cooking, but does it really shorten cook time that much?
