Normally I only do turkeys because I rarely cook whole chickens. Even Mom was won over on spatchcocking turkeys because it saves so much cooking time. Just cut out the spine, dislocate any joints needed, and push flat. I usually just start at the tail and start cutting up each side. Use a cleaver and mallet if you're not strong enough to squeeze sheers. That's what Mom does now.

We toss the spine and neck into a pot to make gravy stock. Means the gravy is done early for dinner.

I just realized how brutal it sounds when you describe spatchcocking a bird. I now feel like they are going to put me in a suit and no-bite mask and restrict my access to fava beans and chianti.
