Spatchcock Chicken. I have done a lot of chicken many ways in the past and wanted to try my hand at Spatchcocking this bird. In the end I have to say that this is a great way to prepare a tasty yard bird.
Pick up this 6# beauty for $.89/lb for this smoke. After rinsing with cold water mixed up a dry rub of spices and applied to both sides and let set out for 30 minutes while the Lang was stabilizing at 300.
Placed it on the Lang breast side up for the duration. Took 3 hours for the breast to reach IT of 167 and the thighs were at 170. During the last 15 minutes added some BBQ sauce as the final topping.
Skin was good bite through and seasoned just right. Next time I will probably leave the sauce off and just serve it on the side or apply sooner and dry it up a little more. Still a great smoke, very tender and juicy.
Hope you enjoy.
