Todd - First of all I agree about sauce but unfortunately we have turned the KCBS chicken and rib categories into a suace contest (IMHO).
They both look good. I know several teams that do well with Blues Hog on their chicken. I would be carefull withj the Mean Deans' - great brisket sauce - just not sure how it would do on chicken. We have found that judges like a sweet tomato based sauce on chicken.
