Default Wings w/pron - Does anyone turn them in ?

I was at the KCBS judging class and the moderator mentioned that cooks are turning in wings and doing well. I tried some, but didn't box them. A simple rub, a little apple wood, and three hours at 225-250.
They went over well.
Does anyone really turn-in wings?

I really want to try wings at a comp. The best chicken I ever had was when I smoked jumbo wings. I should try them, but judges seem on a regular to look and stay in the box. This might be a little too CRAZY for them.

I really wish a guy can turn in wings and not be afraid of being judged in a biased manner.

I got some good wings i'd like to turn in !!!..

Go for it. I believe most use thighs because it is easier to keep them juicy and not dry

Depending on the region were in, we will turn in wings. In Iowa they have placed as high as third (first comp ever) and in Kansas 2nd place...but the closer you get to KC the less tolerant of anything but thighs they become

DH got some wings at a contest this summer, he was fine with it, though they weren't as big & meaty looking as those in these pics. But he noticed other judges at his table being leery.

Maybe if more people entered them, they'd become more accepted.

Those look great! I'd eat 'em up... and probably score them very well too, depending on taste/texture... you know the drill.

we've turned in wings and done really well (first place), but we've also done really crappy(DAL). you just never know. as much as you hear how judges are bored with thighs, they don't seem to want to score anything else very high on a consistent basis.
I say try 'em... see how they fare.

I think some on here do drums... and do well with them if I remember right.

does anyone ever turn breasts? I cook lots of chicken during summer months, maybe 1000 lbs. my breasts are very moist and tasty. just think if it was good it might stand out.

I used to turn in drumsticks exclusively.. It was always hit or miss.. Either at the top or at the bottom (especially when Sled drops them)... very rarely were they in the middle.
