Chickin' Pickin' Championship

About Chickin' Pickin':

The Mountaire Chickin’ Pickin’ Championship is a contest of speed, skill and strategy designed to determine the fastest chicken picker on the Peninsula.  Competitors have 5 minutes to pick and shred as much cooked meat from our oven roasted chickens as possible.  The 2 hour event features twenty contestants who square off five at a time through four preliminary heats, with the winner of each heat moving onto the championship round. These twenty competitors have unlimited cooked 'birds available to them throughout the 5 minute rounds, however they must pick and shred all the meat and skin from the breast, thighs, legs, wings and back of each 5 lbs roaster before they can move onto a new 'bird.  Contest judges are on stage to determine when a 'bird is deemed completely picked to the bone and a contestant can move to the next one.  Each competitor places all the picked meat in a meat tray, which is then weighed at rounds end to determine who moves onto the finals for a chance to win the $500 in prize money and claim the title of Mountaire Chickin’ Pickin’ Champion!
