How to Spatchcock (or Butterfly) a Chicken
For best results, dry chicken completely before cutting so it is not slippery. Place chicken, breast-side down, on cutting board. Cut along one side of the backbone, then cut along the other side of the bone to remove it. Place chicken, skin-side up, and press down firmly to flatten.
Grilling a Spatchcock Chicken
For best results, grill chicken on clean grates. Let stand 15 min. before carving.
How to Grill with Indirect Heat
When grilling over indirect heat, the food is not cooked directly over the heat source. The covered grill then acts like an oven, so there is no need to turn the food. Use this grilling method for foods that require at least 25 min. of grilling time or foods that are so delicate that direct exposure to the heat source would dry them out, such as roasts, whole chickens, thick steaks, ribs or delicate fish fillets.
