My neighbor is entering the backyard/amateur section of a local BBQ contest coming up and neither of us have ever been to one before (even as a spectator). There's chicken, ribs, pork butt categories.
We have to turn in 6 pieces of each meat. For the ribs, simple. Cut 6 super meaty ribs.
For the chicken - he is planning to smoke a whole chicken, beer can style and cut it up into 2 thighs, 2 breasts, 2 legs.
IS that a terrible idea? From what I see on TV, they usually do thighs.
Any info would be greatly appreciated
