    Meatgistics: Chicken Cook off Competition

    See who wins in this head to head battle of Austin and Jon! We both took chicken breast, followed our own recipe and let the employees at Walton's decide the winner! Watch the video, read the guide, and then post your questions or comments below.

    Chicken Cook-off Competition

    This was round two of the cooking competitions between Austin and myself, I was able to convince him to put the Walton’s BBQ Championship Belt, which he won during our National BBQ Day Competition back on the line to see if I could wrestle it from him. This time we decided to go with Chicken breast and see who could grill up the tastier meal for the employees. We let (or made) them try both then rate them 1-3 and pick which they liked best. We had another employee look at the votes and total them so that we wouldn’t know until we were shooting the video!

    For Austin’s chicken he went with a high end chicken nugget like approach. He cut them up into bite size pieces and marinated them over night in Excalibur’s Chipotle Ranch Marinade and then he tossed them in Terrapin Ridge Farms Spicy Chipotle Garnish Squeeze and cooked them for about 45 minutes at 375. These things were loaded with taste when they came off the grill!

    For my recipe, I decided to steal a page from Austin’s book and stuff my chicken breast! I took a huge swing and stuffed it with Mozzarella cheese and Pineapple slices! I then coated it with Kosmo’s Spicy Killer Bee seasoning and added some MSG to that to really kick the whole thing up a few levels! The question is, did this put to many people off or did I hit the sweet spot?

    To make sure things were as even as possible we both used the same grill and the same pellets as well as chicken from the same source. Check out the video to see who won!

    @parksider Thanks for the follow up!! I was really watching the internal temperature when they were in the rolling (HOT) water and making sure to pull them right at the 165. And then right into the ice water bath.

    @Jonathon Yes Jonathon-it’s in your head 🙂
    @mikeihuntr My only advice is to keep the water around 170F, not a rolling boil. If the casing are too tight they WILL explode then you have a really big pot of bad soup! A nice simmer is the way to go, take them out 155-160 and into a water bath. Here is a pic, we just use the turkey fryer with the basket. It makes it really easy to remove from the water and rinse. I will also recommend keeping a temp probe right in the meat you can see the wire going into the water. Good luck!!

    This was a big topic of conversation because we do freeze/thaw/process/refreeze venison and pork, never an issue. As a former restaurateur and certified food handler here is what Dept of Agriculture has to say. I’ll defer to the experts:

    https://food.unl.edu/it-safe-refreeze-raw-meat-and-poultry-has-thawed
    Author: Alice Henneman, MS, RDN

    The U. S. Dept. of Agriculture (USDA) advises:

    Once food is thawed in the refrigerator, it is safe to refreeze it without cooking, although there may be a loss of quality due to the moisture lost through thawing. After cooking raw foods which were previously frozen, it is safe to freeze the cooked foods. If previously cooked foods are thawed in the refrigerator, you may refreeze the unused portion. Freeze leftovers within 3-4 days. Do not refreeze any foods left outside the refrigerator longer than 2 hours; 1 hour in temperatures above 90 °F.

    If you purchase previously frozen meat, poultry or fish at a retail store, you can refreeze if it has been handled properly, according to USDA.

    DO NOT thaw meat at room temperature, such as on the kitchen counter.

    Safety will depend on whether the raw product was handled properly before it was frozen, refrozen shortly after it was thawed, cooked to a safe temperature when it is eaten and handled safely if there are any leftovers.

    @jonathon it is printed on the Box. I’m looking for a bag that has a evoh barrier. Does Waltons carry a four or five mm evoh High barrier bag?
