Reading thru the 2014 proposed parting rule change and some comments about quantities made me curious. for a KCBS event, how much are you cooking for each catogories?

16 chicken thighs, 4 slabs ribs, 2 butts, 2 briskets.
We can get away with 8 pieces of chicken if it's a good batch.

We do 16 pieces of chicken, 3 racks of ribs, 2 butts, and 2 brisket flats. We changed to full packers and didn't do so well. We cooked 2 of those as well.

A lot of you guys are only doing one brisket. Is this because you don't like to cook brisket or is it because you are confident in cranking out 1 good brisket?

KCBS -- 8: Parboiling, Sous-vide, and/or deep-frying competition
meat is not allowed. If any of the banned processes are
discovered before the team turns in, the team will receive
zeros. If discovered after turn-in, the team will receive (1)
ones in all criteria for that entry

You said "flash fry", not "deep fry". Either way, I wouldn't want my chicken to even remotely resemble anything that might came back to me as a 1 on the score sheet.

And, yes, skin is not a requirement. Teams do turn it in without skin.

From the rep advisories:

4.5 Breaded Chicken
Question: Can Chicken be breaded?

Opinion: At this point there is no rule against breading. It can be a part of a rub. Also, frying is not illegal as long as the heat source is from charcoal or wood and NOT DEEP FRIED. (Rule #6 states: Parboiling and/or deep-frying competition meat is not allowed). February 17, 2006

Can't afford more then one brisket. Have to chose between beer or an extra brisket. We are not well funded and have to prioritize :grin:

I've been cooking too much, just curious to see where the common ground is. i'll have lots-o-space with the new cookers set up (going to be working off a BWS Gen 2 Party and Chubby soon).

Plan is to do 3 packs (18ish) thighs, and then a pack or two of boneless/skinless thighs for filler, 4-6 slabs, 4 butts (but will most likely cut that back to 2 hand picked ones), and one brisket. if you screw one of them up, you prolly screwed the 2nd too. And i'm not looking for the waygu stuff, i cook wet aged angus. doesn't taste like a $100 less...

If you don't consistently turn out good brisket, that's possible. However, even with a reliable brisket process, if I taste two side-by-side I will often find that one stands out, just because brisket is a variable cut of meat. I like having that option.

I started to get some really good calls on brisket when I just concentrated on one, when I got 1st ~ 40 teams, I'm sticking with that thought, and I can afford a more expensive brisket when just buying one.

24 thighs (they come that way)
3 slabs of ribs (same reason)
2 butts, sometimes 4, if I didn't like the money muscle on the second butt in the cryovac.

I cook these numbers because that is the quantity they are packaged in. Plus I still have a bunch of leftovers.

12-16 thighs. depends on how they look after trimming.
2 butts. both cooked to same temp for MM and chunks. they're usually not the exact same size so one is always more better(i know, rolleyes at grammar)for each application.
2 racks.
1 brisket.

simply can't process and test much more product with the time given. it'd lead to brain gridlock for me.

I know, I know.

This is one of those recurring topics that must have a hundred threads already.

As far as the rule adjustments, it won't affect the quantities we cook. That is primarily determined by budget and cooker space.

That is unless I get stuck with the chicken trimming and then it might be a lot more cause I suck at trimming chicken.

We're about the same
Used to do 2 briskets, 2 butts, and six racks but have knocked that back to 3 racks and only 1 brisket. I regret it sometimes bit saves $$$
