A little introduction, my name is Bill and I live in Pennsylvania. I compete in about 2 competitions a year with friends. One in NJ and one in PA. I have been backyard cooking for some time and would like to step up my so called competition cooking.

I need some help on what the KCBS is looking for in rib presentation and type of ribs that are used most in competition.

A picture sent to ruger1v@aol.com would be great.

Thanks in advance..

Ruger, I think you'll find a good mix of babybacks vs. spares. I prefer spares.

These are the highest placing ribs we've done so far:

I liked these, too:

As a judge, I look for color, consistent look, clean presentation. I don't need to see the cut side of the meat, but I know some judges like that. I don't want to see oversauced ribs, either.

If you want to try no garnish, which is acceptable, here's one.

All the ribs in this thread look great. Strangely, to me, Paola Greg's ungarnished might look best. Also, strangely, Mr. Kicks photo of the 180 AR ribs looks a little off to me, because the cut side looks a little sloppy. (The parallel ribs in that turn in look perfect to me).

Just goes to show you that judges can surprise us, and we may not have all the answers.

All look great, I will be competing at BBQ on the Farm in Yardley/Newtown PA in May... I live in Fairless Hills SE PA...
One question about how to cut. Do I slice evenly between the bones or do I put the cut up close to the bone?
Pig Tippin.. is the name ot the team. We were so off on what to diid in the past, we did some homework and hope to do better. Thanks for all the help....

I slice 'em even between the bones.
I'll be looking for you guys at the BBQ on the Farm. We'll be there as the Backyard All-Stars.
Lots of local guys on this forum lately. We have Scott Mangold from Pinewood in Levittown too.

Edit: Oh, I just saw your post on rib rubs Bill. Is Scott your partner?

All look great, I we did some homework and hope to do better.
This year will be a great indicator on whether or not we can "Q". We have both put a lot of research into our approach and technique.
