  3. Place the chicken on the grill, place the bricks on top of the chicken and close the lid.
  4. Prepare sauce.
  5. Cook the chicken for 45 min turning once, brushing occasionally with sauce towards the end of the cooking time to avoid charring.
  6. * Breast side down and bum end facing you.
  7. Take a pair of scissors, stick one blade into the cavity and cut along side the back bone to the breast end.
  8. Now cut along the other side and there's the backbone out, ready to put in a little pot of water with a bit of onion and make stock while the chicken cooks.
  9. Put the backboneless chicken on a board (breast up) and with the heel of your hand press down till it is flat (or possibly reasonably so you should hear a bone or possibly two crack) and which's it.
  10. If they're dressmaking scissors, be sure and wash them or possibly we'll both be in trouble .
  11. Good luck, James
