Deboned chix smoke w/Q-view

Discussion in 'Poultry' started by dadwith4daughters, Mar 25, 2010.

  1. Got started late yesterday with my chickens so I decided to debone them. Two whole birds. Thought maybe it would save on time and it really did. Had them done in about 1hr 45mins at about 250. Alder/Cherry. Brined for 2 hours. Here's the improvised technique:

    Wanted them to hang so I took a couple chix leg holders and draped the chickens over them.

    The finished product was very good. Moist except where the meat wasn't covered by the skin. Also, butchering was a snap. Pulled the skin and started slicing. I think the net weight might be more than had I left the bones. For those who want to try deboning, check out Youtube.

    Your deboned bird look good weird but good. I have always used deboned chickens for stuffing them with a jambalaya or a boudin stuffing. Now I will have to check out this youtube deboning video for sure.
