Default Yesterday's Butterflied Yardbirds

Did two butterflied chicken on the OTG, rubbed one with Yardbird Rub and the other with Jamaican Firewalk. Served with potato salad and Keri's Hog-Apple beans that were left over from the day before.

Unhappy yardbirds

looks wonderful! question--did you just cut out the backbone?--or did you do something with the breast also? I tried this once ,but it didn't look as good as yours , and I wasn't overly happy with my butterfly result!

Very nice! Nice photography, too!

Maxwell7, I'll let Noskos answer for his birds, but when I spatchcock a bird I cut out the backbone and then use my thumbs to remove the keel bone where the breasts join. You can also just cut through it. it helps the birds lay flatter.

This picture is from the Virtual Bullet web site instructions on how to spatchcock.

I take the spine out. Than turn over the birds, head side towards me, us a little knife to cut through the white cartilage until I hit the keel bone. Than I "free" the breastbone from the cartilage with my fingers where the breasts join, run my fingers along the keel bone until it comes loose from the flesh and pull it out.
Hope you can make a mental picture out of that!

Thanks Ron, for posting that link to the VWB site, that's exactly how I do it and much easier than trying to explain it in writing ;-)
