I've always injected my birds , but have never tried to get all the way under the skin ....The biggest suprise was how far I was able to get...with the breast side up, I started at the cavity between the two legs and when I was finished poking, prodding, and inching my way around, I was able to seperate the entire breast and reach all the way around both drumsticks without breaking the skin itself.....Amazing!!!!!!!!
Glad that Smokin included that in the 101's..cant wait to see the diffrence it makes.

You know, it's one of those things that I've been doing for years and years. A long time ago I said "hey, self!" since none of the rub really penetrate the skin all that much, why not put it under.

So, NOW you see everyone doing it...If I only knew back then.

Glad you tried it.

Today's experiment, courtesy of the "normal" no Smoking bird experts.

Instead of the cheese cloth over the bird, I'm going to make up a compound butter (of room temperature butter and my poultry rub)

Now stuff THAT under the skin...

I'll let you know how it goes.
