I did (among other things http://weberkettleclub.com/forums/Smileys/default/grin.gif) a couple of spatchcocked chickens, i used Bone Suckin Sauce rub on them. I did the "snake" method (sensing a theme? http://weberkettleclub.com/forums/Smileys/default/grin.gif http://weberkettleclub.com/forums/Smileys/default/grin.gif) They cooked at about 300deg on the Redhead and Blue (see Red Vs Blue) The Redhead cooked faster with the same setup!

Strange i never got a side by side picture with the chicken on http://weberkettleclub.com/forums/Smileys/default/shocked.gif so ole Blue will have to do!

I didn't want to start a new thread and divert attention so I thought i would ask here..

what exactly IS spatchcocked chicken??
I've heard several people say that once I try it that way I'll never to back to beer can chicken again. what makes it so much better/easier/whatnot??? just curious since I'm still a newbie at grilling

Spatchcocking a chicken means cutting the backbone out and spreading it out, cooking it that way is faster.

interesting. I'll have to give it a try next time. I got two birds in the freezer so I might do that in the coming week. how long does it usually take that way? I'd hate to come back and check it and find out I totally dried the birds out

At 300deg it took almost two hours, you could go hotter and be done sooner.

yeah, usually a full 4 lb bird done beer can style takes me about 1.5 hours via 350 degrees
