    On Sunday DH & I processed an 8 month old rooster which I have in a brine. Wondering how he would be best cooked? He is kind of scrawny dressed out at 3.76 lbs. Suggestions? Will he be tough if he is in a brine all week and is slow roasted on Friday? He seems to be in a state of rigor now so I am wondering how to proceed with him. Thank you guys!!!

    Thank you ddawn - that was a great article - a lot of what I was thinking with this guy is how it is spelled out so that is very helpful. I have been gathering info here and there on the threads - looking forward to trying a taste in meat that I have never had before. Thank you for the link [​IMG]
