Body
If you want to halve the time it takes to roast or grill a whole chicken—spatchcock it! The term “spatchcock” is rumored to be 17th-century shorthand for “dispatching the cock.” This technique involves splitting the chicken by removing the backbone so you can flatten it, resulting in crispier skin and quicker cooking.

Thank you to everyone who donated to the pioneer and ranching education trunk! On Monday, I stopped by the post office to check our mail and was welcomed with an overflowing cart of boxes and packages. It barely fit into my little car! Your generosity helps make our education outreach a success! Educational programs have always been important to Canadians, even 100 years ago.
