Forever spatchcocking chickens...no q view

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
This is mostly for UDS folks/wsm mini owners or anyone that cooks directly over the coals with out baffles out bowls that catch all the drippings.

I smoke birds all the time ..cook 325, never brine and they always turn out incredible. This weekend I took the drum to friends for a cook out and decided to spatchcock 3 birds vs whole. ...No I didn't have my camera but you've seen enough of my chickens)))

Long story short cooking chickens over coals produces a lot of smoke with all that grease but with 3 spatchcocked birds it looked like smoke from a forest fire coming out the vents...LOVED IT!!

I always get good smoke flavor but spatchcocking took it to a whole other level. Moral of the story..UDS owners spatch your birds!!!

I agree, spatchcocking is the way to go! I like to remove the keel bone and ribs as well. I love the looks on my guests' faces when I carve the chicken at the table in about 10 seconds.

They asked me to do a third bird so the chickens went on the drum and corn, onions, potatoes and green beans went on the mini!

The mini mod I did won't go to waste though...especially doing a couple of pork butts!

The last couple that I have done I have only used the steamer tray as a diffuser, and ran the smoker at 325*-350*. I was going to do one tonight but I forgot to take the chicken out of the freezer. May have to just go buy one!
