I like your presentation layouts but two things occured to me. One, I just think the lettuce overpowers the meat. Maybe try to make the lettuce a little less "bushy" looking. Your meat should somehow sit up higher rather than be down in the lettuce. Fill those boxes with meat!!! Second, the meat looks a little dry on the surface. I'm talking mainly the brisket and pork. Try apple juice spritz before you close the box.

Try presenting the product as whole but sliced or pulled for consumption but looking large. You garnish dominates the box
I'll PM u an example

OK couldn't pm them e-mail me and I'll send some pic's of boxes

More meat and less lettuce., otherwise pretty good.

Very nice. I agree with the thought that the brisket looks a little dry. You can spritz it or brush it with a little juice from the wrap, if you wrap. If you don't, use beef broth.

Thanks for all the feed back guys, this is the comp. I was talking about almost a month ago. We had terrible weather but a great time none the less. This comp was last weekend and we are practicing tomorrow for next years circuit.
