Yup - Siri has assisted my burnt brain many times. :twitch:

There is an app on the droid that does kind of the same thing.. I think it's called Vlingo, but not quite as 'ready to assist' as Siri.

Interesting method on the spatchcock. Is there a particular reason you split it that way as opposed to along the spine?

Chicken is off the grill and resting nicely. Can't wait to taste it.

Not sure I follow you? I separated along the spine, but I also took out the keel and cut through the wishbone based on somebody's recommendation that it was easier to handle 2 pieces.

"wow, that is so juicy and delicious", said my daughter when I asked her if she wanted to taste a bite... "can you cook this again soon?"

Thanks to everyone that posted detailed enough information so an amateur like me could cook something so great!

Technically, spatchcock is when you cut out the spine & remove the keelbone but keep the chix in one piece - looks like you have it split along the breast as well, giving you 2 halves. Anyway, not a big deal - I doubt it gives a drastically different result, but I'm guessing that's what prompted the question, 'cause spatchcocking and cutting in half are 2 different deals, at least as far as I know, which isn't always very far....

That's a nice looking chix btw! There is never a moment at our house when there isn't a smoked/grilled chicken in the fridge. :thumb:

Great job!:thumb: You can brine them too for an even juicier bird but it sounded like that wasn't necessary. It is when you overlook it a tadd though (don't ask me how I know this). :redface:

I always split spatch my birds. Looks great, Siri is amazing. We were goofing around with Siri this weekend, you can say anything at all and it understands you. Even insulting things, pretty hilarious.

Thank you. Actually I did brine it overnight (thanks to yet another tip I found here).

that's hot

looks good

Thank you. I was happy with my first attempt. I will make a couple of minor adjustments next time and they will be even better!
