This idea stems from being intrigued by the idea of blending the rich, smoky flavors of whiskey with the sweet, tropical essence of guava to create a unique barbecue sauce. This combination suggests a desire to experiment with diverse culinary traditions, possibly fusing elements of Caribbean cuisine, known for its use of tropical fruits like guava, with the American tradition of whiskey-infused barbecue sauces. The creativity in this dish could also reflect a personal fondness for bold, complex flavors and an enthusiasm for experimenting with different ingredients to elevate a classic barbecue chicken.

    Place the chicken on its shoulders on the cutting board. Cut with a sharp knife laterally from the abdomen to the thorax, cutting through the ribs and leaving the breast free attached to the body only by its shoulder bones. Now place the chicken flat (skin side up) and firmly press down on the chicken breast to flatten and dislocate the back two legs to help lay evenly. Trim off wing tips and unwanted skin.
