With this event being just around the corner and having just reread the Brethren rule book I have a few questions.



Under beef - what exactly are long bone short ribs? Beef Plate ribs (IMPA#123)? Back ribs (IMPA#124)? or chuck ribs (IMPA#130)?
Small correction on brisket - the deckle and the point are not the same thing
Since beef ribs are a legal turn in, does this mean that beef ribs are not a legal entry for anything butt?
Are the turn in containers the "standard" 9x9?
Is this going to be a "no garnish", green garnish", "edible garnish" or "any garnish" event?
Will the standard turn in container and garnish rules apply to anything butt and dessert?
Is the anything butt & dessert open cooking method (any source) or only the rule listed sources?
What are the turn in times for anything butt & dessert on Saturday?
Who's the Brethren rep for this event?

I emailed Tom and he said standard garnish.

I did ask about turn ins for the other catagories and have not gotten a response yet.



I would like to know how many judges per table so I can adjust my "samples" to meet the +1 criteria and the awards structure? paying to what place and what place does the "bling" go to?

I am really looking forward to this, wouldnt mind having more info.

I called linda yesterday to ask some of the same questions(garnish and beef). Heres what I got.

9x9 boxes
Green garnish
Beef ribs are plate ribs.
Cooking styles for anything butt and dessert is open.

Linda and jerry are the reps. I texted her this morning to stop by cause we have more questions.

Yeah, a mass email with details wouldn't be a bad thing. The Brethren rules / rights seem to have a lot of flexibility built in which then necessitates a stronger communication path by the organizer.

OK here are your answers:
The Beef Plate ribs are the long bone ribs- you do not need to turn in bones they will not fit in the 9X9 boxes - they are not legal for the anything butt
The standard 9 X9 containers will be used
This is a green garnish contest
It is open containers and garnish for the anything butt and dessert (have fun with it)
Turn in times for Saturday are 6 for anything butt and 6:30 for dessert
The 11 minute window applies to all categories both Saturday and Sunday 5:50 - 6:01, 6:20-6:31 Sat and 11:50 - 12:01 Chicken, 12:20- 12:31 Ribs, 12:50 - 1:01 Pork, 1:20 - 1:31 Beef

Jerry and I are the reps for the contest-
There will be 6 judges per table so 7 samples are required
Meat inspection begins at 9 AM on Sat.
Cooks meeting is 1:00 PM Sat.
Tom plans on calling all cooks beginning Sunday.

Hope this answers everyones questions. Be sure to read the rules which are posted on the Que for the Troops website.

See you all next week.
Linda
