Spatchcoc Chicken

Ok also known as butterflied chicken  ;D

I cut the backbone out and opened it up, rubbed with EVOO inside and out and then applied BBBR to both sides. I am doing this on my Traeger because i need 325* heat. You could prob do on the Bradley at 225*

good thoughts Nepas -  Here are a couple of stories I wrote on this subject, maybe useful to folks who've never done this technique before - or at least didn't know the fancy name for it!  And fair warning, some of this content about 'smoking on a gas grill' may not be suitable for dedicated wood smoke aficionados!  :D

Cook a 12lb turkey on your grill in 45 Minutes?  Spatchcoc it!
