    Been trying to get bite thru skin on thighs is a bitch.
    One solid trick is to lightly salt the skin and then air dry in the fridge for 24 hours

    Thanks for the tip.
    At check day before meat has to be in original packaging. We will have coolers and ice so could prep night before.
    Still practicing

        crispy skin is tough when smoking, bite through skin can be achieved by taking skin off putting it upside down on cutting board and with a very sharp boning knife or filet knife, something a little flexible and cut fat off the skin. trim chicken to the size and shape you want and put skin back on, if you use toothpicks to hold it on PLEASE count them don't accidently leave one in foreign object not good 😎😎😎

        It looks like most steam the Chicken (skin) so it is soft and bite thru and not dragging skin off chicken. covering up pan with foil last hour.

            what temp did you go to on this money mussel 😎😎😎

          #8
          245-255 for 5 hours till meat 165 then wrapped , pulled at at195ish. smoker temp was around 280 another 2 hours.
          After reading some say pull at 180 to 190.
          Money muscle was too tender, as rest of butt was great.
          I did two at the same time and the other could not cut just fell apart.

            you can isolate the money muscle but it has to stay attached until cooked, according to KCBS I believe that is 160 or 165 than cut it off wrap it and put in your cooler, that is also like you did wrap cook pork butt until 203 205, put it in cooler to rest. When ready for turn in heat money muscle in some ajus from pork butt drippings glaze it or what ever your going to do and see if that works out a little better for you

              Cooked 7 racks spare ribs on the 4th July for practice.
              Different rub combos and sauces,marked 4with tooth picks but lost track of what We were doing. All were tasty and neighbors very happy. Adult beverage s to blame.

                Big news for me , finally got bite thru skin on chicken thighs.
                Trimmed, little skin scraping,jaccard meat tenderizing and meat glue skin on.
                A lot of work but results good.

                  So, you trim the skin to be the same size as the thigh, take it off, scrape the fat off it, then glue it back on to cook? Any salting or oil? I seriously doubt that I will ever cook a competition, but I aim for the crazy crispy, potato chip level skin on my thighs anyhow. Love to make sure I understand the process you went with.

                This vid explains best.
                I did a lot of what he does. Not much scraping tho

                  Great, thanks …. Going to see about incorporating this into my teriyaki chicken recipe

                I really like crispy skin. My wife says I have chicken addiction.
                I dont think Ill be doing this for backyard cooks.
                Although I also injected with Butcher bbq chicken injection which was a first, it was mighty tender and good.

                    We ground out a second for chicken yesterday.
                    it was a long night partying and cooking.
                    Even longer day.
                    Competition life not for me.
