Default chicken thighs

Im sure this question has came about somewhere on the forum. in the comps do you prefer to turn bone in thighs or de-boned? we normally turn in de-boned thighs.

Last season was our 1st season cooking but we cook bone in. We ended up doing decent with it.

I have tried bone in and cut out the knuckle bone, de-boned a bone in thigh, and tried boneless and even though it is lmore abor intensive, I prefer to use bone in and trim or cut as needed.

As a judge I'd perfer bone-in. Seems more like real chicken than the skin-covered pile of chicken parts that some turn in. I'll "try" to judge each entry "as presented", but...

Just saying...

I think if you have a very unevenly sized set of thighs, then you might go bonless because you can cut them to a uniform size easier. I have always done bone in though because I think the bone gives structure to the whole thing, but since I super tanked at the last practice cook, and the guy who scraped his skin down and did the butter bath thing took 1st place, I was thinkin I need to at least try it once.
