Nailed it!!!! cool0012 I love this pellet pooper … It’s sweeter than home made ice cream  Tongue

For my first MAK 2 Star cook I chose to Spatchcock a couple of chickens.  Rubbed them with Roasted Garlic EVOO and Fagundes Seasoning

Preheated the MAK to 350ºF for 30 minutes.  Inserted the Spatchcock chickens skin side down and set the MAK to SMOKE for 45 minutes.  Using Apple wood BBQ pellets.  I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of smoke generated by the MAK.  After 45 minutes, set temp to 350ºF.

Pulled the chickens when the Internal Temperature reached 170ºF.  Took just shy of 2 hours to go from an IT of 54º to 170º in the breast

The MAK is now broken in …  BBQ

Placing the Spatchcocked Chickens skin side down on a 350º grill created some nice grill marks

The money $shot … ½ a breast, a thigh, and a wing accompanied by some steamed asparagus and a nice salad

Turned out so good that SWMBO wanted to know if I could do 4 chickens next time instead of 2 cause I gave one to my Son for helping me put the MAK together.  He’s going to take out a frozen turkey early next week for me to smoke next weekend  Grin Grin
