Default Boneless Thighs

Hi,

I'm speaking from ignorance here, so please bear with me.

I know that a lot of competitors use boneless thighs. I also know that there is a often some good natured grumbling about how time intensive it is to properly trim and debone the thighs.

My question is, why not just buy boneless thighs? Is it the expense or maybe the lack of precision cutting?

Thanks!

Eric

I don't think i've ever seen boneless thighs that were NOT skinless. I think most folks that go boneless want the skin.

That's a great point. Thanks.

I can get them from a local butcher whose staff really know what they are doing for $1.99 lb and have them save the skins.

Does that seem like the way to go to you?

Thanks again.

Eric

That is one problem I don't think I'll have to worry about. I have 10 pounds of chicken for Monday and I'll be doing practice cooks at least once a week until the comp.

Thanks!

I find that the judges like having "handles" on their food out here.

Typically lack of precision cutting in my experience.
