I try to be creative with my rib boxes.......especially baby backs as the curves allow you to use the corners of the box. I get nervous though that I am gonna get nailed one day by someone who feels the meat is "sculpted" or purposely shaped.

That, and I really don't know what a rosette of meat is so does anyone know so I make sure I don't turn one in by accident.

It's a flower design. Not possible with ribs.

Well, theoretically you could do it. Short baby back ribs placed on edge could be arranged in a pinwheel designt that might be interpreted as a rosette. Frankly I've always felt this rule is ambiguous and should include photo examples of what is and isn't legal.

That's actually what I have done.....I've made circles of baby backs which I think looks cool because it shows off the smoke ring as well as just gives a different look. I am always afraid some judge is going to say a circle is a sculpted shape or rosette and DQ us. I would have a hard time accepting that as most guys turn in a square of ribs so I don't see the difference.

There's a picture at the site below. Not BBQ, but you'll get the gist.

Found this thread while doing a Google search because we were discussing this on our way to the comp this weekend.
