Mother’s Day Apple Smoked Spatchcock Chickens

posted in: Chicken 0

My contribution to this year’s Mother’s Day celebration at my Son’s house was the Chicken, and Appetizers. Picked up 4 nice Chickens at Costco. Each were about 6-lbs and I figured that would handle about a dozen people..


Spatchcocked the Chickens and rubbed them with some Annie’s Roasted Garlic EVOO and Fagundes Seasoning under and on the skin. Notice the nice plate of Chicken Livers and Hearts waiting for the sauté pan. Yum … made for a nice snack!!

Pre-heated MAK 2 Star Wood Pellet BBQ Smoker-Grill to SMOKE (180º) using Apple wood BBQ pellets and smoked the spatchcock chickens  for an hour.


Pulled the chickens when the Internal Temperature reached 165º in the thickest part of the breast. Took the chicken about 2 hours and 45 minutes total.

The Money $Shot$ … Fall off the bone Apple Smoked Spatchcock Chickens. A great time was had by all and best of all the Moms didn’t do a thing except relax, enjoy, and be waited on …
