Would you look at the walks!!! :lol:

Congrats to all the Brethren teams!

It was another good cook off. I was table captain again...getting to be a habit - but, gotta have 'em if I ever want to make the coveted "Master Judge" rank!:-D

Super congrats to Jimmy and Rub - they both were pretty stoked! I think everyone had a pretty good weekend...but it POURED rain Friday/overnight to Saturday. Things were dried out a lot by the time I got there at 8:30...but ALL the teams said it was an issue.

Met up with Dr. Frank & Swine - he was, I think, pitbitchin' for Big Daddy Q and hanging around Jimmy's area...we're going to hook up at Douglas next weekend and share stories...and a few adult beverages.

Kissimmee has had bbq contest for the past 7 years, but this is the first sanctioned event...a few power & water issues to work out, but overall I think they did a great job.

There was a pro bass tournament going on Lake Toho and the ProAm is tomorrow...the festival grounds were the HQ for that, too, and so we got to hear/see the awards for the fishermen...I'm thinking I'm in the wrong competition/sport...they were paying $1K down to 15th place!!:shock: Must be nice to have sponsors.:twisted:

Congrat's Jimmy and Rub. Great showing! Congrats to all the Brothers that took walks!

Just saw this - congrats guys!!

Question - how does the FBA do their scoring? Under KCBS you couldn't get the overall scores that are shown. Typically the maximum overall score would be 720.0000 (180 times 4)

FBA uses all 6 scores, none are thrown out.

Max score per catagory is 200, for the event 800.

Weights are different also. Appearance/presentaion is about 10%. Texture and Taste are about 45& each.

So, different but similar.

Does that help????
