Hello! I am so sorry it took so long to get back here!
We were 17th out of 30 overall and my chicken, I am happy to report, came in 12 out of 25! One judge even gave my chicken straight 9's! (To bad they throw the highest and the lowest scores out) I did recieve a few other 9's but mostly 7's and 8's. I was pleased with my first attempt! My chicken also was the highest scoring meat on our team.
And yes we had a great time!!! I will definetly be doing this again!

Congrats, Renee!

We've been having good luck with bone-in thighs. Try to find the ones without 'yellow' skin, as they tend to shrink up more than the regular. Don't trim all the skin off before you cook, judges don't like to see the pulled back skin. And don't forget the garnish.....you do get judged on appearance of the product, but NOT the garnish...supposedly , but you know they look at it, otherwise they wouldn't give guidelines for it!

877 767 988 657 867 877 as you can see, judges # 2 and 4 were not impressed at all!!!

That photo was NOT from Lakeland this year. Last year, I think. It was a rejected pic due to the lighting ;)

Team name is The Oval Rulers

Butcher,

I know that ceramics do a great job on chicken and I particularly loved the look of your thighs before saucing. Beautiful color, looks like bite-through skin!

Wish judges didn't love sauce so much, since, a) it softens the skin and b) it often comes down to who likes the sauce you choose!

Again, lovely use of garnish in your box!

Lee
