Butterfly chicken is a cool way to grill a whole chicken ! I would bet most backyard grillers have not heard of this technique or may be hesitant to give it a try.
Butterfly chicken is simply removing the backbone of the chicken using poultry shears or a sharp knife. Cut through the bones on both sides of the backbone and remove, press the chicken flat.
I have seen some grilling shows use a brick covered with aluminum foil to weigh done the chicken on the grill grates.
Once you have your critter butterflied, preparation is pretty straight forward. Season on both sides or brush with a combo of soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, pepper, marinade.
Set up your gas grill with burners at lowest setting and preheat Grill N Pals. My grill temperature was about 300 degrees with the hood closed. Check your grill temperature set up this way to know how hot your grill gets. High heat is not needed. For charcoal grills have enough coals evenly spread with grey ash for at least one hour of grilling time.
BBQ sauce should be applied later in grilling process to avoid burning.
I grilled bone side down for 45 minutes with grill hood closed before flipping to skin side down for another 45 minutes again with hood closed. As always check for proper internal temperature.
With side dishes my 5 1/2 lb. bird was big enough to serve 4.
The Grill N Pal makes this method a no brainer so go ahead and impress friends and family at your next cook out!

I hated food dropping through the grates of my grill!
That was one of the problems with most grills. Uneven heating, hard to keep clean and reduced grilling options are a few of the other issues I addressed when the Grill N Pal design was created.
It had to be durable, easy to clean, heat evenly, eliminate messy foil, be expandable and most importantly be AFFORDABLE !!
Who wants to spend lots of $$ on a grill to have the same issues of a budget grill ?? The Grill N Pal can turn that old clunker into a money saving, grilling machine !
There is nothing better than hearing from my customers on how much they love their Grill N Pal. Many have purchased some as gifts for their friends and family. It’s a snap.
Green beans are a snap also — a little olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder and parmesan cheese — grill over medium heat till desired doneness.
I slow grilled the chicken legs and thighs getting them nice and golden before brushing with “EASY BBQ Sauce”. Sauce is so easy with few ingredients most households have on hand. 1/4 cup each of honey, ketchup, soy sauce. Add to taste – salt, pepper, garlic, paprika, hot sauce or whatever suits your taste !
Finger licking good !
