    whole, brined, well seasoned... I also do a "breast enhancement" by removing the little chunks of fat generally found right around the cavity opening and stuffing it up under the skin on top of the breast meat...add a little butter and seasoning if you like. It bastes the meat while it cooks!!!

    Brined whole birds are my choice, but sales on parts override that.
