During the prep, do you not look at your chicken? clean the pin feathers at that time, why wait till its cooked?
If you see more pin feathers after its cooked, just pull them out, easy peasy. I would'nt even think about grabbing something with propane in it to burn off feathers for fear of getting DQ'd.
