So I have decided to enter my first competition. It is the county fair and qualifies the winner for the state fair. The problem is I have no idea what this entails. I don't know what to expect. I am not sure what kind of chicken I am going to get, ie whole chicken, parts or halves. I think that there are 2.5 to 3 hours to cook it. Not sure about brining to enhance the flavor or what. WOW! I want this but feel like a clueless teenager! Any help would be great. This is for the Oregon State Fair and Fircrest Farms chicken cook off. If anyone here in Orygun has ever been involved.
Thanks for the help.
