Default chicken sourcing

Where do you guys source your chicken for contests? Is there a chicken equivalent to Compart pork and SRF beef?

We like Sanderson Farms. I notice you're in Nashville.

I would check out Springer Mountain Farms if you have it available up there.

Oh yeah. That stuff is everywhere. We buy all our chicken from a local farmer, and it’s the best chicken I’ve ever eaten. But—not sure how it would do in competition. Pasture raised chicken has a yellow tint to some of the fat and gristle. And the skin is thicker. I may have to give springer mountain a try.

Springer Mountain. I have to order by the case but worth it. Smart Chicken would be my next choice locally.

I'll second Sanderson Farms, had good luck with them the last two years. Switched to them when I was having trouble finding good quality Smart Chicken. I look for good size pieces with skin that isn't tough/scarred looking. I've done well with Smart Chicken, Sanderson Farms, and generic store brand chicken thighs
