I've been using this method of butterflying (I've heard it called spatchcocking) for a while and it makes for a faster cooked, more flavorful bird. Hadn't tried it on the grill though and was excited to give it a shot. I had watched this show and Flay used a ceramic stone to keep the bird off the direct heat.
