Truss or not to Truss?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

While cooking a whole chicken in a dutch oven, would trussing the bird have any advantages or is it a waste of time?

A trussed bird will look better and since we all eat with our eyes you will think it also would taste better.

I truss whole birds however I cook them.  It makes a more compact package to present to the heat and cooks more evenly in my experienced.

Trussing makes final product look better. It also creates a more uniform compressed package for even cooking.
