At the Friars Club, but I hear the Hollywood Palladium isn't too bad.

...

First spatchcocked turkey and chicken were last year and they were too much work and while on the whole the results were very good, they weren't better than I get with the old standard.

I have a very large and very old pyrex glass roaster with a thick glass cover. It's big enough for a large chicken or small turkey. A slow roast in the glass roaster over a few hours results in amazingly tender and juicy meat with minimal work and cleanup is a matter of a half-hour's soak in the sink followed by a hand-dry.

First you need to find a meat chicken . Not one of those miniature things they sell for chicken in stores . My grandmother hadRhode Island reds or Newhamshire giants . They were so much bigger than the things you can get in a store . We would whack 2 on weekend pluck them and cook . would feed8 peopled would have a few pieces left over . Even the back had more meat on it than what you can buy in store .

I swear sometimes I think they're selling Cornish game hens on steroids.

As I don't get to Costco as often as I should, I pick up a rotisserie chicken at Safeway.

They're about 4/5 to 2/3 the size of Costco's chickens, which aren't huge themselves, but still make a three meals for one person.

spatchcocked.
herbs de Provence
or
Jamaica Jerk
or
Za'atar
or
Rosemary
or
Onions, carrots, bottle of reasonable Italian white.

or did you mean method as in an alternative to spatchcocked?

We used to vertical roast, but found that dried out.
Relating to a previous thread, Dutch oven, quartered Indian or Malay spice.
Or any of the above flavoring in a slow Dutch.

I have tried other methods, but most of the time I stick to basically the same method. Only difference is the roaster is CorningWare nearly 40 years old. The radiant heat through the clear glass cover is enough to brown the skin, and the cover keeps in the moisture so the breast meat does not dry out. The Pyroceram of the roaster is even easier to clean than Pyrex dishes I also have.

I get 7 meals out of a Costco chicken (I always select the heaviest one that they have out).

1) Left shoulder and wing
2) Left breast
3) Right shoulder and wing
4) Right breast
5) Left thigh
6) Right thigh
7) Left and Right drum sticks

Sorry, a Costco rotisserie chicken tastes like what it is - a cost engineered meal. It does not compare to roasting yourself.

I agree. However, our local markets sell rotisserie free-range birds that are quite delicious and every bit as good as birds I have cooked myself and vastly better than the Costco cheapo birds.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

I don't think that spatchcocking is really roasting, it's main use is to cook it evenly across, such as on a flat top or grill. in an oven, the heat is all around the item, so it's not much of an issue.

like others above, I think a plain old roasting pan is find, and I like those with a little insert at the base so it holds the meat elevated, to catch the fat. if you don't have that, pile the veggies under the bird, and they become infused with the fat and juices. this adds a huge amount of flavor to potatoes, carrots, parsnips, etc. I also use onions, cut up. season with your choice of dried herbs and a stick of rosemary.

Don't care, I really like it.

DIY may taste better, but but not enough for me to spend my time DIYing.



1) Left shoulder and wing
2) Left breast
3) Right shoulder and wing
4) Right breast
5) Left thigh
6) Right thigh
7) Left and Right drum sticks



I might have to consider how I organize the bird for consumption, but seven meals would still be a stretch for me.

But I should get to Costco more often if only for the chicken.
