    I hope this is appropriate forum for this question.
    I got a 5 m. old rooster which I would to turn into a dinner. What do you think is the best way to prepare it?

    Stew him low and slow.

    I agree with Prissy about stewing low and slow. Then add dumplings, simmer until dumplings are tender, and brace yourself for some fine dining.

    Then add some vegs and noodles and call him soup!

    Thank you.
    I made a stew from legs and breasts and broth from back and wings. Fine dinning indeed.
    I have ordered dual purpose roos along with cornish crosses. I am glad I did it.

    The French insist there is no better bird for Coq Au Vin than a rooster. Ooo la la! [​IMG]

    Get a smoker, inject some marinade, start it late morning, and by dinner............I need to pull the smoker out of the garage and get it going!!!!
