IBCA questions. We are headed to texas in january to compete in the W3 series. Now weve done a few ibca contests and done pretty well. But they were still California judges.
I think we are good on texture and apperance, but im nervous on how our flavors will fair in texas.

Chicken: we sauce with a sweet sauce with some heat and a hint of citrus
Change or no change?

Ribs: sweet with heat
change or no change?

Brisket: no sweet just straight au jus (is au jus going to be a problem). rub is mainly Simply Marvelous Peppered cow
change or no change?

it's all going to be terrible, just stay home there, lol.

Seriously though I dont think I would change much if I were you. A little more smoke on the brisket and a little more salt and garlic on that peppered cow. jmo though.

Just remember to set your sauce and carry a paper towel to turn in to sop up juices. Good luck to you!

Run the flavors you know. The easiest way to prevent puddling is to set your sauces well and like candy said, carry a paper towel with you to turn ins. Judges will inspect your box on turn in to make sure it meets requirements, if not you have a chance to fix it. There is more than enough time to run your own boxes that way you are in control if you need to make an adjustment.

Seems like everyone has you covered so far...cook 'em tender, no pooling of sauce or juices in the box, chicken with some pop will probably do well, I agree with the ribs sweet and heat, brisket a bit more salty than you would normally do. Best of luck to you!
