I forgot to ask one thing...you guys with comp experience, what are the factors that chicken is judged on?

Yum! Yardbird rubbed chicken. It's the favorite around my house too.

Looks real tasty.

Appearance, taste, texture...(not necessarily in that order...:twisted:)

I used the propane starter to light the chimney. I was a little pressed for time so I just loaded up a chimney and let it rip. It seems to be faster than taking the time to make a pile and igniting it. Plus, I hadn't tried lighting the chimney with the propane starter so I wanted to see how well it worked.:rolleyes:

I HIGHLY recommend the Plowboys Yardbird Rub. Great balance of flavors and made the chicken a nice color.
