Breaking out from the 'judging problems' thread


Look forward to seeing your episode. Can you say who you had as an assistant?

It was an amazing experience. Hopefully the editing was kind to me. My co-author of Wicked Good BBQ, Andy Husbands was my assistant.

you might be surprised if you call ATT. I called a couple of months ago and got every channel, faster internet and the monthly price is cheaper at least for the next 12 months...figured I will cross that bridge when I get there.

Can you watch these episodes online? I have AT&T Uverse and they don't carry it.

It is on channel 465 (and 1465 for HD) on U-Verse.
You have to have the U-300 package or higher.

I have heard though that several folks got the upgrade offered for free for 90 days when they called to inquire about the new channel.

One thing is for certain, watching the first episode, is that just because you bought a $150 piece of meat, doesn’t mean you can’t screw it up!!.. Doesn’t make you an awesome brisket cook instantly either!

But they're three of America's best pitmasters. Maybe slicing with the grain is the next innovation. In fact, maybe we'll soon see Hot & Fast Cupcake Brisket that is cut with the grain!

Getting back to the show... I see Wed's offering was called a "sneak peak" for the Sun. June 3rd premier. Could I assume that Sun. show will be a repeat of Wed. show?
I missed it and can't find the online viewable show.

Seriously ? It's a tv show judged by three celebrity judges with their own scoring system and rules. It's not a sanctioned event lol.

For KCBS comps it's illegal to separate the money muscle from the butt prior to cooking. Nothing wrong with muffin tin chicken.

ok.. so are we saying that a TV show about BBQ is going to influence a team to the extent that they unknowingly disregard the rules? that tells me that a new or rookie team is looking to a TV and NOT reading the rulebook.. if someone does that.. sorry.. IMO, they deserve the DQ. Its no different than reading a post here, or picking up a recipe in a book, and then doing it in a comp.. is someone going to turn in a baby back rib sandwich because they saw it here? someone fries chicken on the kettle... is that going to cause a ruckas?

NO WHERE EVER does that show say its KCBS, or anything that would mislead a team into thinking they are.... The only rule is get it in on time.

Well said !!.. KCBS rules are readily available on-line, at the contest, and at the cook's meeting. No excuse for a team to not know the rules or have access to them. No pity from me if they unknowingly broke a rule.

Something from this past Sunday's episode...the one with Diva and 2 Worthless Nuts...the guy from AK took his chicken out and put it in a pan and fried the skin. Are there any sanctioning bodies that allow this for competitions?

jaestar
06-26-2012, 02:09 PM
I believe KCBS allows this as long as the it is not deep fried. I think there was clarification that pan fried is allowed. It can not be fried on a gas or electric burner.

06-26-2012, 06:49 PM
Most of the sanctioning bodies will see something, from the MM separated, to garnish showing up in no-garnish comps, etc. First timers and even a few 2nd and 3rd timers seem to refuse to want to read and understand the rules... They just do...

Great show this year. I was outspoken about Season 2, so I might as well say how much I enjoy the new format, probably even better'n season 1.
