Default Help with Chicken turn in

I did some thighs today for a test turn in box. The best I could do is get 4 in the box. How do you guys get them to fit. Do you trim them? if so b4 or after cook? or do you try and find really small thighs. What about breast how would you do those. I am still not sure which to use at comp. Was going to post pics by really disappointed about not getting a good box.

Breast meat will dry out quickly, especially after you slice it amd put in a box....

That is why most everyone goes with thighs, that and they are so forgiving...

Try to find uniform sized smaller ones... or trim before cooking...

I once stuffed a turn in box with 13 thighs with no garnish. The person taking the boxes at the turn in table almost dropped it, it was very heavy. I did not score well.

Try to find the smallest ones you can. If not, you can trim them down to what you need.
I tend to angle mine just a bit if the thighs are too big but generally they fit. You must of find some monsters form Chernobyl farms.

Even photos of bad boxes will help us help you. No shame in that!
Are you sure you're using 9"X9" boxes?

All the pics look good. I like Mutha style for triming. I hate to horde in on a post, but does anyone have a pic of a FBA turn in.

Ditto Mutha Chicken. Hard to get six roid filled chicken in a box, so trimming (before cooking) is definitely the way to go.

Actually your box looks pretty good. I would give it a solid 8, maybe more.

Ok I promise picture next time no matter what. Mutha thanks for the great pics that is wanted I need. Will try it this weekend. Yes they are 9x9 boxes i just double check. Should have known better than to think making a turin box was easy by seeing the pro pics. By way I never thought I would get tired of looking at thighs and breast of anything but I am.

And finally anyone got it links to vid for making the boxes.

Thanks guys for all the help. more questions to as tiem gets closer.
