Barbecue Competition Practice - Chicken!

This is a photo of a recent chicken practice cook. In a real KCBS competition, cooks are required to turn in 6 pieces of chicken. Because this was just a practice cook, I only cooked four of them. Cooking fewer let's me try a couple of different techniques and recipes without having to buy six pieces of chicken for each version. Also, I like chicken but I can only eat so much of it.

KCBS judges like to be able to easily bite through the chicken skin. I think I nailed that attribute this time around pretty well.
