Kosher chicken's the way to go!
Last night I made chicken breasts and thighs from two packages of frozen kosher chicken pieces that had been waiting their turn in our freezer for quite some time. I just allowed them to thaw and then placed them in the egg over direct 350 degree heat for around 50 minutes, then slathered them in KC Masterpiece BBQ sauce and allowed them to dwell for 10-15 minutes. That had to be one of the best pieces of BBQ chicken I've ever had (except, of course, Beer Butt Bird)!
Kosher chicken is just plain BETTER! It's iced and salted prior to packaging, and no heat is used in the processing; therefore, no brining is necessary. Sure, it costs a little more, but it's definitely worth it. If you haven't tried it, you should.
