Default Chicken question

Consider this a question from a fan, I won't be mucking up the competition side here. I read a lot of threads here about chicken thighs as the turn in piece. I like thighs as much as the next guy but I was wondering. Does anybody that competes in this stuff turn in wings? To me the wing has the highest skin to meat ratio and well the skin is the best part of the chicken. So it seems to me that wings would be a choice piece for competitions. It's my favorite part of the bird. Does anybody use them, have used them or had any success turning in wings?

At my first competition a couple of weeks ago, the team next door used chicken wings. They looked and tasted great. He took 4th place out of 21 teams. Just a side note, we took 2nd with thighs. So I guess as long as it looks and tastes good, you have a shot.

Last year Model Maker did wings and scored in the top 10 with them.

There are a couple of successful teams that I know of that put wings in the box, usually along with another cut. Don't forget that wings also have the highest bone to meat ratio.
