roast chicken

Marlon | Jan 17, 200412:54 PM

I eat take-out roasted chicken at least once a week...easy, tasty, healthy...Recently I discovered Costco chickens. They are truly beyond anything I have eaten before. Juicy, never dry, large, plump, perfect balance of taste (salt/pepper), absolutely the best. AND cheap! I am comparing them with what I have had from Wholefoods, Berkeley Bowl, Andronicos (the worst by far), and several places in Berkeley (including the very expensive organic chickens from the place on Hopkins St).

Can anybody explain why are they that much better? I am afraid they may be using something we should not be consuming (am I getting paranoid?), do they brine them? Any comments??? (also any other ones I should try?)
