I’ve done whole chickens but decided to spatchcock this one to speed up the cook and just to try it out. 6lb bird been cooking between 275-300, I removed the water pan to see what sort of temp swing I’d have without it, about 25+ deg, if anything just to get a gauge for my next brisket. IT in the breast is at 120deg I’ll prob put he water pan in now to help buffer temps and let it cook another hour or two.

all done. Bout 3.5hr cook. Temp in the thighs was 170, Breast was 165-167. Covered it in foil lined pan for the rest Before cutting up.

They each weighed 8lbs and I cooked them in just over an hr. I did put a glaze but the color really cam from the rub. I make a lot of my ribs but not that one. It was the Holy Gospel from Meat Church.

I’ve heard of holy gospel as I’ve watched them meat church videos, how did u like the rub? I’ve also looked into the bearded butchers rub, another group I follow on you tube but it’s always sold out. And wow 8lbs cooked in just over an hour. Ok good to know

The rubs are good I do prefer to make my own if I have the time there nice for a quick dinner. I hate the silicone and stuff they put in. But as far as rubs go the meat church line is good.
