By having its backbone removed (known as spatchcocking) a 2.5 pound chicken lays flat on the Cinder Grill and cooks with amazing accuracy. Once at the desired temperature (153°F) you can remove the chicken, heat the Cinder up to searing temperature and use a prolonged sear to achieve a golden brown.
