Default Farkin' Chicken Skin is Killin' Me

OK seeing as how my chicken skins are ALWAYS seeming to pull back from both ends, I had an idea - any thoughts on this:

Buy a package of nice trimmed boneless, skinless thighs from Sam's Club and a couple of packages of regular thighs. Take off the skins from the regular and trim them down and cut off all fat. Wrap them completely around the smaller boneless, skinless thighs and use toothpicks to hold in place.

Labor intensive, yeah, but possibly worth it? Anyone ever try this?

Your idea almost guarantees the skin will pull off the meat with no effort.

how about this instead.

get thighs that are on the larger side of medium.

Using a sheers, or VERY sharp knife, trim the thigh to be much smaller than the skin, so the existing skin wraps around the chicken and can be tucked under.

;)

I suppose that's a better idea, Phil. What about de-boning them to make more room under the skin?

That tooth pick idea worked out pretty good in practice. But now this trimming of the chicken and the tucking of its skin sounds interesting. May have to give it a shot this weekend.

What Poobah said is pretty much what Dr. BBQ taught us at the class.

Jeff - why not just cook them like you did at Blue Springs last year? Was that a fluke? Go back to what won!!!...or keep looking for that elusive gurantee.

If you recall, we were up all night drinking with your drunk "girlfriends" watching them dump pork butts off collapsing racks into water pans... I'm not sure I remember WTF I did at Blue Springs!

Jeff - you worry too much. Try to find thighs that are about the same size ( I know its hard to do some times). I then trim the thighs to get them even closer to the same size. Heres the trick tho, just trim the meat under the skin and pull the skin back over the meat.
You can always trim excess skin after the cook.
Chicken is easy, pork on the other hand is a different animal.
