    My FIL butchers my roos when we need to cull. When I get them, they are skinned and cut into pieces - how long is long enough to soak - is there anything else I should do to get the best flavor?


    THANKS!

    when you say soak, do you mean to brine or to leave the meat in buttermilk?

    i leave pieces cut up for fried chicken in buttermilk over night.

    when i brine a whole bird, i do it for up to two days. if it was in pieces, one day max.

    enjoy your yummy chicken!

    I soak in brine for a day or more - it's usually in big pieces ( 1/4 - 1/2's )

    buttermilk sounds good. I usually just make pot pie ( by usually, I mean about 3 times ), but I'd like to expand since it looks like I just hatched out 7-9 roos out of the 15 that hatched!!!!! I plan to keep 1 or 2, but don't want these to get as old as the others we've culled.

    I'll have to try your recipe - I use the puff pastry too...dh said it was the best cpp he'd had! Great compliment coming from him cause his mom is a really good cook when it comes to pies - chicken as well as your normal fruit, pecan, etc...
