By removing the backbone of the chicken (known as spatchcocked) 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 get a golden brown.
