I'm thinking of cooking whole chickens this weekend. Need to practice for the big one anyway and I figure I can't do any worse than I do with the thighs.
I feel the same. I did whole chickens for the first time in July of this year. Placed 14 out of 41, it should have been much higher but I made some dumb mistakes on apperance. It would have been top 5 without the mistakes. I think the judges like the idea of the whole chicken vs. thighs.
