I am not sure this is a fair statement.

I mean, I don't even know how to play the guitar.

Honestly, I don't have a clue. That was a gut reaction to all of the other lame rulings that the BOD comes up with. So I figured it was legal, thus I voted for illegal to rationalize like the BOD does on some issues....

Joking of course!!!

Don't know if it's legal or not. Someone could say you were trying to render the fat under the skin. Why risk it? That's why I use a lady schick! And I learned that here...

As long as the gas for the torch is made by the coal gasification method on site using charcoal or wood as the source fuel, then it should be legal. Here is a simple process flow chart for the process.

Is this why some teams do their prep work under their Ezups with all 4 side panels down while they work under lights?

Just my memory thinking out loud here.

OK, no more complaining about the board micro managing. If someone asks they'll have to make a ruling on this. What does Jeff think? LOL!

Was it wrapped in papers? Maybe they were trying to "smoke" their chicken.

[QUOTE=Plowboy;1134455]Was it wrapped in papers? Maybe they were trying to "smoke" their chicken.

No. I actually thought it was a great idea, you know the way the pros do it on tv, to remove the extraneous feather hairs. I then started to do it at the very next contest and thought, "wait a second, this might be construed the wrong way" and I immediately stopped. I hadn't really thought of it again until it was brought up here. Personally, I don't think it is cooking, and therefore should be okay, but when at a contest I don't want to do anything that could even be interpreted incorrectly as being against the rules.

If your question was meant to be humorous I am sorry that it went over my head. . If not, I would be interested to hear of this "smoking" meathod you speak of.

Apparently, not that humorous.

Interesting question Dan, I often wondered if others would construe the use of a butane flame to remove my chicken hair, which is why, in the abundance of caution, we use Nair for men.


I prefer the lotion to the spray, I feel the residual material adds to the resulting texture of the skin. Please do not repeat this tip, as I am very aware of the chatter on various forums regarding "blue bottles" and chicken.


(and it is only early January)

Actually, the safest way to do it is prep the chicken at home where no one can see you use the torch...
