Here at All Things BBQ, we’re constantly interacting with folks who are passionate about grilling, smoking and cooking in general, and folks who are hungry for knowledge and looking to improve their craft. If you’re reading this, there is a good chance that you are one of these folks. You’re awesome. One of the questions we get a lot is, “What is the best way to cook a whole bird?” Whether it’s chicken or turkey our answer is always the same. Spatchcock. If you’re tired of drying out the breasts while waiting for the thighs and legs to finish cooking, it’s time to employ the spatchcock technique.
