Or you can sign-up in advance by sending us an e-mail with your information and why you think you would make a great competitor. Send emails to Brian Patey at email@example.com. Once the field is locked, contestants will face off in 4 preliminary heats of 5 competitors each, with the winner of each heat advancing to the finals! The four person finale is 5 minutes of meat picking pandemonium where only one will be crowned champion!
So just how does each round of Chickin’ Pickin’ work? In the simplest terms, our winners are determined by who can pick and shred the most meat from our oven roasted chicken(s) in a 5 minute time frame. Contestants will have access to an unlimited amount of cooked ‘birds, HOWEVER, they must pick and shred all the meat and skin from a single ‘bird before moving on to a new one. That includes meat from the breast, thighs, legs, wings and back. The picked meat is thrown into a collection tray, which gets weighed at competitions end to determine our winner. Contest judges are on hand to specify when a contestants ‘bird is deemed fully picked, thus allowing them to start a new one. This process will go on for the entire (5) minutes. There can be zero bones or large chunks of meat in the collection tray. Such items will be removed before being weighed. FYI, the average person can pick a single bird clean in approx. 90 seconds.
