No, but looking forward to hearing your results....was the cutting hard?
Did you tuck the little wings behind the thigh so they won't burn?

Sounds good....let us know if it was worth the trouble. Everytime I've seen it on tv, it looks delicious.

Someone please confirm that this "spatchcock" thing is just where you cut out the backbone and flatten the chicken. It sounds like some thing that should be against the law in most Southern states. I know I'm not gonna tell the guy sitting next to me in a bar "I'm gonna go home and splatchcock my chicken."

Spatchcock the chicken. What's that? It's a term that is thought to have originated in 18th century Ireland. It means "to butterfly". Basically, you cut the backbone out of the chicken so you can open it up and press it flat. :biggrin:

Don't forget to remove the keel bone from the breast. I leave the chicken skin side down the whole cook time. Bruce Cook turned me on to that a few years ago. He calls it 'the swim cap method' Just about the most juicy bird you will ever enjoy.Place chicken on a plastic cutting board breast-side down. Using kitchen shears, cut ribs down one side of back bone and then the other and remove. Open chicken like a book and remove the keel bone separating the breast halves by slicing through the thin membrane covering it, then by placing two fingers underneath the bone and levering it out. Turn chicken breast-side up and spread out like a butterfly by pressing down on the breast and pulling the legs towards you. Instructions from A.B.

I know it's illegal here in SC. My third cousin (twice removed) went to the big house for 5 years on a spatchcocking charge. Come to find out, he was an habitual spatchcocker for years before he was caught. His wife/first cousin turned him in. She'd had enough of his spatchcocking, despite baby #2 on the way AND her high school graduation nearing.
