1st time doing Spatchcock chicken.

  1. Rubbed with evoo and McCormick mesquite dry rub with hickory wood. 275 until the it hit 180. Chicken turned out amazing. So moist and juicy. The wife and kids loved it. Guess I know how I will be doing chickens from now on

    Great looking bird. I do all mine like this now. The results are more even and the cook time is less. Good luck and keep on smokin', Joe

    Great looking chicken!

    After I did my first Spatch, I never went back. Much better results.

    About 2 hours at 275-300* on my smoker. But, they are done when the IT in the breast is 165* and in the thigh is 175*. The time will depend on how hot your smoker is and how well the heats holds even.
