Does your area have desserts mostly submitted in clamshells, or open garnish? Here it's almost always open, sometimes with size limitations.

It's funny how so many will post chicken, ribsm pork and brisket boxes but arecso secretive about dessert category. Like their is big money in the prizes.

I see now why my dutch oven upside down cakes can't pull their weight until taste. Wow, some fantastic amounts of effort. Very nice to most of the pics. It is funny how most are hessitant to show deserts. Now working on better deserts. Steve.

All those photos were posted to the CBBQA website years ago, after the contest, which was Clovis, CA 2008.

At some contests here, it pays as much as a meat category! At one show this year, dessert and potato salad paid that contest's expenses, plus some. http://www.divaherself.com/funny/shiner.gif

I don't think it's so much that people are terribly secretive about some presentations, so much as the majority of posters here don't do hands-on dessert work.

Wow...I really need to step my game up. That creme brulee posted by Alexa looks amazing.
Thanks! I wore the hell out of that presentation for a while. And to this day the idea of sugar glass gives me bad flashbacks.

agreed. what are the parameters for cooking dessert?

i'd be hard pressed to do candying in my WSM.

KCBS does not set rules for the dessert category; it's up to the organizer, and most out here go with "assembled on site, nothing store/restaurant bought" in order to level the playing field between canopy teams and those with RV ovens and fridges. And yes, you can bake damn near anything in a WSM.

bake yes, but temping sugar to within 5 degrees of desired temperature would be a challenge.

and wouldn't "nothing store bought" UNEVEN the playing field between those with RV's and canopy teams?

Not that I disagree with your overall point, but my WSM is more accurate than my kitchen oven.

Here is our entry for the desert catagory at the grilling portion of the BOTBB held this past weekend. It is a double chocolate (white chocolate, dark chocolate) rasberry cheese cake. It is my sister-in-law Ruth's recipe. We were told that cheese cake never does well so I guess this one was really special. It was scored a 178.8, 1.2 points from perfection. Smoke in da eye had two pastry chef's do his desert entry and Ruth whooped their ass.

Cheesecake almost ALWAYS does well here in the midwest.
