Default Reverse Spatchcocked Chicken on the Open Pit

Did some chicken the Argentinian way. First I reverse spachcocked the chicken up the breast. I like the better placement of the breast meat under the thighs and wings. After I cut it up the keel bone, I trim the fat from the but and tuck it up under the skin on the breast. You can make sort of a pocket by sticking your finger between the breast and the skin.

These were roasted over the fire with just salt then finished with a brushing of olive oli, chopped garlic, and cilantro.

Never thought to do a reverse spatchcock. I might have to try that sometime.

Amazing color on this bird. It looks delicious. I'm going to try the Reverse Spatch for sure.

Nice lookin bird there! I guess flattening the chicken out either way does not matter as long as it's flat, huh. Nice!
