KCBS Chicken turn in

I was reading the KCBS rules a few weeks ago and it said instead of chicken you could turn in cornish game hens. Has anyone done this? I wonder if turning these in would affect your scores one way or another? Any thoughts?

I have seen it, don't recommend it. It's far enough out of the norm that judges have problems giving it a top score, this is my opinion of course.
I am a Rep and judge trainer I do get to see a good over view of how judges score.

What got me thinking is because I was watching BBQ University one time and he cooked cornish game hens beer can chicken style. He used those small cans of fruit juice and it looked really good!

I've done them like that for dinners at my own house. Short of a nice presentation, I'd rather eat chicken. The judges won't see it on the small juice can, so that's out. If they eat it and are expecting chicken, your taste score will suffer. JMHO!

According to AB, Cornish game hen is just a fancy word for a near baby chicken that can't fly yet.

Sounds reasonable. Do believe I would stick with the thighs. That is generally agreed to be the best part of a chicken other than the liver..gizzard..Preachers nose and them little oysters which hide out along the top of the backbone. Hey I wonder if anybody has ever turned in Preachers Noses on this deal. That prob be a grand prize winner. Everybody loves them thangs. Smart thinking.

We call it the Pope's nose, but it's the tail.

Well the Preacher's Nose..or the Parson's Nose as the limeys call it is whut was called a Pincoushin down at Graham. It the chicken butt thingy that sticks out in the back. Now when we was young whuppersnappers my mama was cutting up and frying chicken..she would religiously cut it off and throw it in the trash for some reason. On the other hand over at my cousins house..they all fought over who was gonna get it. One man's meat is another man's pizzen huh?

My grandmother loved them, she called it "the last piece over the fence!"
