I'm gonna say it. You have to respect a guy who can stay in the hunt, every hunt. I don't know all the back story, and I don't want to know. But that guy deserves some respect, at least for what he turns in. I'm rooting for him.

Can you imagine traveling 1,000 miles, begging and borrowing gear to compete, and have it all come crashing down due to that grain of foil? He still finished middle of the pack with the DQ since PNWBA requires all judges give a 1 on appears for foreign object, but the rest of the categories still stand.

You are comparing apples to oranges. My first comp judging i seen a team get DQ'ed for a spec of foil that was so small that i wouldn't even say with 100% certainty it was foil. If i noticed something i pick it off and toss it and no i am not talking about hair....gross.

Complete crap!!! There's a difference between a sheet of foil, a forgotten toothpick, and a spec of foil. The foreign object rule is not about finding a grain of sand and tossing the team out. It has been taken too far.

Not only should the DQ'd team feel bad, but let's assume the team had a better than average brisket. No offense here, but the GC probably wasn't the best team of the day. Kind of like getting your ass kicked in the 100m dash but winning because the guy's pinky toe touched the line. Doesn't change that he kicked your ass. Terrible way to win, IMHO. YMMV.

I'd love to see KCBS put some common sense BACK in this rule.

Gotta disagree Todd. First I dont think this was a KCBS contest but rules are rules. Grey lines don't work well in a rulebook. Exactly what size piece of aluminum is OK? Or, I was only 2 seconds late at the turn in window so what...? Everything needs to be as black and white as possible. No aluminum is a clear rule.

Break the rules (even an unintentional mistake) and you don't get the privilege to lay claim to best team of the day.

Its unbelievable that after all this drama, THAT happened at the next contest.

Seriously though, cooking on borrowed equipment and last minute procured meats is definitely very challenging.

Rich, I'm going to dissagree on that. If it's a violation of the rules (and it is) then it should be reported to the Rep for a DQ.

Now, having said that, I do think that this rule is just about as assinine as the parting of pork rule.

BUT - as long as it is the rule then I'm going to follow it wherever I judge.

Yes, I missed that this was PNWBA, but the same rule exists in KCBS and is equally ridiculous in both bodies.

I disagree and see foreign objects different from the timeclock. I know that there are people who see things as only 100% black and white, but the reality is that we have rules today that won't fit that goal. What's marking? What's sculpting? What's a pork butt? (That's a joke.) A spec that got pushed into the center of my brisket is beyond the control of the cook and is ridiculous. Why not give it a dimension? Rules state how chunky a chunky sauce can be. If you want black and white, then problems solved, but let's not toss a cook out because of a spec.

First time I ever was table captain, I opened the first chicken box and there was a full sheet of foil. :shock:

Spoke with folks in the PNWBA and there were two (2) chunks of point (they don't consider them burnt ends) which had foil on them, one is excusable, two is stupid. They were returned to Harry, hence the picture on his cutting board. Looking at the taste and texture scores, it was possible he could have been RGC without the DQ but not probable. You have got to understand that cooking in the Northwest is not "bottom feeding." There are some excellent cooks (one that comes to mind is Jim Minion) and the GC, Paul cooked out of TN for a while before he moved back to WA. This is also where I started cooking.

Preach on my NEBS brother. on any given day you will get your ass handed to you...i struggled until i found the right maple syrup...

But seriously. I suggest everyone go up to NEBS land. We do every year, why we are members and why we have so many good friends from up there. Besides them talking funny, they are alright :thumb:

I'm still learning about the competition circuit and favorites and how things work and to be honest I don't think it is any different than any other sport. The top teams will always be "hated." I'm still not sure why he has "haters" but he seems like a nice guy on tv but I also hate the Lakers even though I'm sure they are nice guys :crazy:

Would be DQ'd for a foreign object........likely Swedish:clap2:

"What's sculpting?"

Is carving up a chicken thigh so that it will be identical to every other thigh you tun in sculpting? I bet you could make a strong argument that it is... after all, you're drastically modifying a cut of meat to make it more appealing to the eye. It's got nothing to do with flavor, just pretty, i.e. Sculpting.

boogiesnap
08-01-2011, 10:13 PM
um, no.

sculpting has to do with linking an entry to a team.

now, please, leave my east coast brother alone. you know that we know that you know our BBQ is not bottom feeder fodder.

I'll put my 2 cents in here. I'm not bashing Harry or anything...but. He's aurguably one of the best cooks in the country. Rules are rules. Do I like them as far as the foil thing.......NO. I've had 2 teams that are good friends get DQ'd for foil this year. But he knows the rules and should have kept a close eye on that.
This weekend When I was doing brisket I asked the other 3 teamates and my dog (but she really didn't give a sh!t) to make sure there wasn't any foil on any slices or anywhere in the box when I was putting my brisket box together.
I guess I'm not as kind as most but rules are rules. Like em or not!!!!

Being a PNWBA kinda competitior I can tell you that it was considered a "foreign" object...just as a hair would be or something other than parsley or green leaf lettuce. The REAL pisser is that PNWBA does not score burn't ends...they are considered as garnish and are not to be tasted for scoring. So...the foreign object in his "garnish" took him out of the running. Sad...

deena
08-01-2011, 11:21 PM
Yeah it was a bummer but rules are rules and Harry was a very good sport.

Anyway.. Burnt ends are defined in the PNWBA as a portion of meat that has more bark than meat. So the only thing that is not tasted are those really crusty corner pieces. If there are chunks of the point that have more meat than bark.. they are tasted.


BTW this rule will be reviewed after the end of the season because of all the confusion of the definition. But that's up to the board to vote on.

Hi All,

I wasn't there so this is pure speculation. My guess is Harry used foil as a cutting board because he travelled to the contest. That may be why there was such as small piece of foil on the cube of point.

It was nice to meet Harry at the Longview (Thunder Mountain) event. He cooked an awesome noodle/Chicken dish for the pot luck and he went out of his way to meet everyone there. This event had several multiple grand champions cooking. Just because an event is small doesn't mean its a gimmee. You still have to put out your best product to win.

At first i thought the rule about a spec of foil was pretty ticky-tak also, but after giving it some thought, I see no reason to change the rules to acommodate not paying attention to details. These are professional contests, so every detail should be thought throught and looked at.

(sorry that this post has nothing to do with Harry, but the tread is leaning in this direction)

Not doubting the rule...just the first I have heard about it as far as the burn't ends tasting criteria. We have been told on several occasions by head judges that they are not to be tasted at all. Looking forward to a clarification on the issue for sure.

I'm thinking conspiracy by B-F... you know, come to think of it, do they own Reynalds Aluminum? :tape:


In all seriousness, this should be a good lesson on why to never/ever cut on foil.... i poke a hole in my foil and make the hole bigger before the needle goes in for a temp. Too many horror stories of hearing about foil inside a brisket. I also take great care in lifting brisket out of foil. All it takes is to hear something like this and it will make you want to change your routine. Sucks for SYD.

We do the same thing and I even make sure that Jim doesn't have any pieces missing from his gloves after cutting/slicing so that's it's not in the meat! We both look at the turn in box to make sure there isn't anything in there or on the meat that could be grounds for a DQ. I now realize I have the most important job!!:crazy:

We used to use the looser fitting plastic gloves 'cause they were easier to take on and off 'til we cut the tip of one off and left it in the box one day. We use the tighter latex gloves now, but we still have someone watch closely to make sure none of it ends up in the box. We also take a toothpick inventory before we turn in the box. It's not big fun when we have to toss the camp upside down looking for that last unaccounted for toothpick 2 minutes before turn-in.:icon_blush:

As a side note-we competed in one PNWPA event and it was great. one hour turn in times and a comment card is required by every judge for every entry. :thumb::thumb::thumb:

Congrats to Home On The Range and Big Daddy’s!!!!.

Just read the entire thread before commenting. First off, as someone mentioned haters, I sure don't see "hater" posts at all in this thread. Get over it. Loved the comment about "karma"! That's exactly what I'm thinking. One reaps what one sows. End of story. As for the DQ itself, rules are rules. Caveman had a tiny piece of foil, not much bigger than SYD's metallic garnish here at Pleasant Hill that got him DQed in... brisket. Chad was an incredibly good sport, accepted responsibility and was a completely honorable competitor during the visit from the rep and myself. I'm glad to see Harry acted in a similar fashion. And finally, never, ever cut or slice meat on a piece of foil! That's asking for trouble.

Now if he just had the disposable cutting boards from Smoky Mountain Smokers this wouldnt have happened. And all sales will go to the Corliss Johnson Memorial Foundation for the month of August.....

As a former victim of the foil speck (American Royal Open 2010) I will say that one should be very careful:icon_blush: In our case I contend that the cheap ass foil I used "flaked" under the heat and left a tiny speck on the bottom of a brisket slice. In the week following the Royal I found foil specks on my pork (having not cut or probed through foil). The foil quickly went in the garbage and I havent found a speck since.

You know, if some other team were in the same situation and chose to cook with us in PNWBA Land, I'm fairly certain that they would receive the same hospitality that was extended to SYD.

After reading the whole blog http://www.slapyodaddybbq.com/blog/?m=201108
I feel very proud of our organization!

I'm not counting, but Raven's Fyre has been in at least 3 confirmed accidents on their way to comps, there could actually be more!

Here is your "spec":

Here's my own personal brisket "foil in the box" DQ from the Lexington NC Cookoff in April:

More than a speck I guess, but apparently the last piece in the box since that was all that was left when the rep presented it to me (and I actually got a comment card on brisket so someone tried it). Talk about a sick feeling......

Preach on my NEBS brother. on any given day you will get your ass handed to you...i struggled until i found the right maple syrup...

But seriously. I suggest everyone go up to NEBS land. We do every year, why we are members and why we have so many good friends from up there. Besides them talking funny, they are alright :thumb:

I better check my notes. I do not remember this "maple syrup" you are speaking of.......

Ah ha! Now I see you working. If someone wants the "full" CSC experience they need to take the class in different regions! Maybe that's why you beat my butt on pork in Lexington (you had something up your sleeve). Or, more likely, you're just a much better cook!

All kidding aside, that maple syrup apparently works up in NE. But, I'm afraid to go there as they might not understand my accent. :-P
