What does a winning box (any category) look like? Pictures please......event and location are optional.

Let me add in this edit, I am not here to "shig" or "steal" your secrets, I just wanted to compare

Some research at bbqcritic.com will help you out. I don't like to post pics of my winning boxes. Comps are hard enough to get calls at without helping potential or current competitors.

Throw up your boxes so we can compare too. May even get some constructive criticism to help your cause.

OK Ill jump in. No winner here but it was my first competition. I actually submitted my 4 boxes to BBQ critic but haven't seen them up there yet.

I can see, looking at it now, should have trimmed the fat off the bottom and there is debris on the meat. I had no idea the competition we were in for. We learned a lot and will be back.

you should also cut across the grain. :razz:

That is what they said also. I got a slip. I guess I don't fully understand across the grain. I will do some searches here to check it out.

Check out this picture from our friends @ Bob's Hogs. You can see how the meat has a distinct grain running in one direction highlighted by the long strips of fat running almost directly right to left. Cutting as he is, perpendicular to that grain is cutting across the grain.

Thanks Muzzlebrake. I have never cut one like that but I am definitely going to start.

Ya know what....live and learn. We all start at the bottom and work our way up. I've got a few DAL's from our first competition to prove that.

Keep practicing, it does pay off.

Best of luck bro!!

They aren't showing because you have linked to a location on your local hard drive...

The pics need to be in the internet somewhere in order for the IMG tags to work.

The first thing that stood out was the chunked pieces in the front. they are ok (just ok) but should have had a bit less in the pulled pile so it didn't look so jumbled. The other thought was to make the garnish a little more uniform. and final thought to lightly sauce the money. I did sauce the back side but was really trying not to hide the smoke ring.

I gave sled the permission to post a pic of the 180 pork from last weekend in bel air. The pic is posted prior to taking the tweezers and really lining up with pork perfectly and fixing all the parsley. He should be loading soon. Enjoy and bash me if you'd like!

When putting burnt ends in the box, Do you prefer putting them in the front or back of the box?

If your sauce "hides the smoke ring", your sauce is too thick....
