 BIRs will get soft chicken by pre cooking it to the right stage. When you cook chicken it will start fairly tender but with a tight texture, go through a tough stage if cooked for longer, but then get to the soft and tender stage that I recognise from a good BIR if cooked for half an hour or more.

Nothing to do with taking it out of the fridge prior to cooking imho.

well for tonight's meal i think i will cook the can of worms i have opened, after they have got to room temp of course :)

To be honest, I think that healthy (and scientific) debate on potentially important issues such as whether bringing chilled food up to room temperature before cooking can contribute to improved tenderness is what makes this forum such a useful resource. 

On the other hand, posts such as "OMG, that looks wonderful. I could eat that for breakfast", and/or arguments over whether member X has made sufficient contributions to the forum to be referred to as "one of this forum's greatest contributors" add little if anything that could conceivably be of benefit to future visitors to the forum. 

My EUR 0,02.

I like a healthy debate and it's only by challenging ourselves (and each other), that we can get to the core facts.

After all, it wasn't so long ago that I was still telling people that a swan's wing is so strong that it can break your arm.   ;D

Adding some stock to my can of worms, this is julian Voigt's take on tenderising meat.

The marinade recipe to which Julian refers can be found below.  Incidentally, I like your pun on stock (footage) !
