This will be my second comp. Wifie and I enjoyed the first one so... First was MBN and this one is IBCS. They want a whole half chicken. So I'm cookin chicken everyday right now.
Question; I kno chicken about 165-170 is done but to me its tough and rubbery. I've took it way past and made it mushy. About what are you looking for in turn in chicken? Thanks.

I usually take them to 175 in the thigh. I don't probe the breast, just the thigh, because I don't want the white meat to dry out. I buy my birds in the 4.5 to 5 # range and cook 4 halves at each comp to give me a selection to choose from. Depending on the number of teams, they might require 2 halves for turn in, another good reason to cook 2 birds.

I saw in the rules about if there's so many teams you turn in two halves. If that's the case, do they give a second box? Surely ya don't have to stuff it in one?

It is a bigger box. Don't worry everyone gets the same box and only 1 person gets to experience the chicken before it gets hacked up.

Concentrate on the taste of the chicken, that's the money.
