Wow you got one out of control Bush. Use curly parsley. Search online for how to build a bbq box. I spend around an hour on each parsley bed. Good luck.

Remember it's a MEAT contest. Use regular parsley and just make a even bed for the meat to sit on.

Is "Italian parsley" legal?

From the KCBS rules:

12) Garnish is optional. If used, it is limited to chopped,
sliced, shredded or whole leaves of fresh green lettuce, curly
parsley, flat leaf parsley and/or cilantro. Kale, endive, red
tipped lettuce, lettuce cores and other vegetation are
prohibited. Improper garnish shall receive a score of one (1)

Honest question--I have not a clue :oops:

And Yuppers---way too much even when you add the meat :grin:

Italian and flat leaf are the same thing.

Is this the wrong thing?
This is the only parsley I saw at restaurant depot?

Rd should have flat leaf, AND curly leaf.

Curly has RSS flavor...but looks better in a box. Wont see much flat leaf in comps.

It was a dumb question----Lost my head for a moment and forgot that Google (actually Bing now) is my best friend :mmph:

the other thing is that it would appear that you built the box in the top instead of the bottom.
