IMHO the idea in comp chicken is to keep the product as moist as possible and that is going to work against you. As stated before – just keep trying different things.
John, I just wanted to say thank you so much for posting about the baking powder. I made the chicken cupcakes tonight, and mixed baking powder into the rub. Those were THE best chicken thighs I have ever had in my life. They actually crunched when I bit into them. I'll be doing these again very soon!
