The best way to hand deliver all that smoky aroma directly from your Traeger to your bird (and then your taste buds) is to spatchcock it. It’s not just fun to say, spatchcocking your chicken allows it to lay flat and soak up every last bit of hardwood flavor while it roasts to juicy perfection.
6 Pound whole chicken
1 Tablespoon toasted fennel seed
2 Clove garlic, minced
1 Tablespoon salt
1/2 Tablespoon pepper
