Thigh knuckles: Cut 1, 2, or both?
I was gonna try to do this as a poll, but couldn't figure out how, so:
What's the consensus on cutting off the knuckles on a chicken thigh? I've generally done both in the past, only because I like the way the skin wraps better. I watched a competition prep video where he only cut off one knuckle, and I attended a class a few weeks back where two of the competition teams that were there said they don't cut off either knuckle because the marrow leaks out and can cause a bitter taste.
What do the brethren say?
