Guess I should have asked this question before now but what is the type of lettuce used in the turn in boxes for competition?

KCBS rules allow for green leaf lettuce, curly or flat leaf parsley and cilantro.

Kale, endive, red leaf lettuce or other greens are not allowed.

I would grab it on your way down, and keep it on minimal ice - to keep it fresh. Make your produce guy go in back and get you fresh cases of parsley and lettuce to choose from. The produce usually gets thier nice and early in the morning - so don't settle for the ones that were out all night :roll:

Blizzard is right. We're bringing the polar swine to all the farkers that wouldnt come out in February huh!!! Nothing beats snow, like cold, wind and rain to follow it 8-)

Coffee with Bailey's (Carolan's actually), and Bloody Marys will be served early and often in our site... feel free to grab one to shake that chill off!

And if you can't get to the new cases, pay attention to the cores/end caps on the lettuce at the supermarket !!!!

The produce dept. guys are notorious for peeling off the wilted outer leafs that look nasty and slicing off the brown end cap to make it look like a fresh head of lettuce just put out..

They usually do "pruning" at night when no one is in the aisles to improve appearance until someone buys it.

The rule is leafs of green lettuce, so iceburg as an example is legal.
I would recommend green leaf lettuce and stay away from other green lettuce.

Todd,
Bring plenty of green leaf lettuce and lots of good parsly down to Osage and I will show you how we do the garnish - you can do the same or some other way. There are lots of ways that win - even without garnish.
