With my chicken not being up to standards last week, I decided that I needed a little more practice before our first competition. This time, my chicken turned out great. I was able to get more flavor with a little more seasoning applied and I gave it more time to set in on the chicken. The thighs were tender and very juicy, and I was pleased to get a better smoke flavor too.
I'll spend the rest of the week packing up for the first competition of the season this weekend in Clarksville.
