How To: Truss a chicken for roasting or smoking

Truss a chicken for roasting or smoking

This video explains how to truss chicken. First, it is explained that trussing is the process of tying a chicken such that it is better suited for cooking. One benefit is that trussing keeps the tips of the chicken's wings from burning during the cooking process. Another benefit that is explained is that trussing a chicken allows you to stuff the cavity of the chicken with something like onion or lemon while the chicken cooks. A figure eight pattern is made around the end of the drumsticks with cooking twine and the twine is then wrapped around the turkey and tucked under the wings. Next, the twine is tied tightly in the back of the turkey to finish the trussing process.
