Default KCBS chicken thighs

So we are practicing for next weekends kcbs in Franklin IN. Doing butts and thighs and we made a few thighs boneless. Is this allowed? Does the bone add that much flavor?

Thanks,
Chad

Bone in or out is fine.


I have scored much better with bones in but you will hear successful chicken weekends come in all shapes and sizes.


Cook some great chicken and you'll be fine whatever you choose. I wouldn't fool with breast meat unless your contest requires it though.

No problem dude...........don't be worried about your first time. Make good food and keep your boxes pretty and you will be fine.

I would go thighs bone in or out before trying to get creative. Keep it simple, make and FOLLOW your timeline for cooking and give yourself some extra time on each cook (run chicken as close as you can) because your not going to slip under done tough meat past many judges.


Good luck.

Also, don't get hung up on the skin if this is your first comp. We cook with the skin on but pull it off for the last 15 minutes to color up. Get the benefit of the fat, flavor and moisture control without the hassle of the 'bite through'. Now we aren't winning, but our chicken was holding it's own. K.i.s.s. your first time out. Good luck!

Good advice. BBQ judges generally will punish you for being too different. Forget all about that mango citrus habanero rub with a cinnamon raisin cabernet glaze and think traditional flavors with a balance of smoky, hot, and sweet.

I think bone in/bone out matters less than the favor and treatment of the skin to make it bite through. That said, most of the time people leave the bone in.

We've had regular success with bone out thighs. It doesn't matter what you start with or how you do it. As long as the end product is mouth watering Q, you have a shot. Have fun. Hope to see you sometime. We compete a couple times in Indiana every year. We'll be in Plymouth in September, will be doing that one?

Careful Ron. I did that with a first time team this weekend. Offered help with anything. I joked that they picked a h3ll of a comp to start off..........................Ya they beat the sh!t out of me and a lot of really good teams to move on to the regionals. Congrats Billy Rays BBQ.
cgel42 I would take up Ron's offer on ?'s. He's forgot more about bbq than I'll ever know. Good luck n have fun!

I was wondering in the world they were. I told my wife they must have been an east coast team.

Nope. Just good ole (young) guys from Indy. Great guys that reminded me of Fowl Butt back in the old days when there were 5 of us. They've got a new cheerleader!




That would be me.
