Muscle use generates more connective tissue. The more connective tissue a piece of meat has the longer it takes for the heat of the cooker to convert it into gelatin.

So the older an animal is and the more walking around it does means more connective tissue intertwined in the muscle fibers means longer cooking times.

Hey, you asked

Funny you should mention that, I just spent an hour going to three stores to get my chicken for this weekend nad I still don't like what I got

www.smartchicken.com you will be happy with the product from what I have heard. That is where I am ordering my chicken from now on. All packages come 1lb, so sizes should be pretty darn close

Yea, it says IBP on the green package too. When I first saw the green lables, it was laying next to one that had the old lable on it and they looked completly different. Both IBP but I'm guessing from different plants.

Smart Chicken was good this week.

I actually changed providers by choice this week, went with whole foods you know organic/ green and everything. I was very happy with thighs they trimed and boned for me 16 of them and I would say 12 are almost exactly the same. ribs need some work and it was more expensive. But I am saving the enviorment. Do I get extra points for that?

We will have to try Smart Chicken. Just checked the smart chicken website and it's not available here in Cincinnati. But is up in Columbus where my partner lives. What makes the Smart Chicken so much better? How much per pound is it?

It's airchilled, never frozen and antibiotic free. I can get for $1.99 lb.

Last year they did a chitty job trimming and bone was splintered or large joint.

bought a case of Smart chicken thighs last year and trimmed them all vac pack and froze them --everyone had a broken thigh bone--I didn't like it but the judges didn't seem to mind.
Bell & Evans is supposed to be similiar--air chilled and all--about $2.50/LB from a small meat market--will try to screw it up on sat morn!
