KCBS BBQ competition chicken

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone,
Looking for some advice.
I am doing my first KCBS BBQ competition in few weeks and I was wondering if anyone has ever entered a BCC for the chicken category? If so, how did you cut it up to present it??

I have only done thighs before but I have a suggestion. If you have room to do it, cook multiple birds so you can slice some white meat and surround it with the other pieces you would like to include.

You might also google some pics of presentation boxes to give you other ideas as well.

Thanks, doing a few birds is a good idea! I was looking at some presentation boxes last night...there were a few boxes with chicken parts but almost all were thighs. I wanted to take a risk with something different. Thanks for your help. Much appreciated!

my last one I did beer can chickens (brined)... cut the breast off of them and then cut them into 6 pieces (6 judges) each.. picked the best looking one and put it in the box so it still looked whole .. then a couple of legs at the bottom and a couple of wings on the side (without the tips)... that way the judges could pick what they wanted... as you say.. everybody does thighs so I wanted to be different... legs are starting to pick up in popularity... good luck with the comp. remember.. "Don't expect anything and then you won't be disappointed" (my motto) ... and as always.. HAVE FUN...

Here are the 4 categories I entered. I placed 7th in the chicken and 7th in ribs. For my 2nd  competition I need to manage my timing a little better.
