Can anyone let me know about the rules regarding
the use of Aluminum Foil in comp.

Is it OK to smoke open for 3 hours, Then wrap in foil with liquid
added in side the smoker, mabey finish back on with no foil at the end

Im looking for the rules on this for
Ribs, Briket, pork Butt

I have been told that It is OK for comp.

It is fine to use in a comp; it's simply a tool!

Feel free, just make sure it doesn't make it into your turn-in box. Last comp I judged someone got DQ'ed because they left some in their box. DOH!

There is a link to the 2010 KCBS rules here (http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/showthread.php?t=13877).

If you aren't cooking in KCBS competitions then check with the sanctioning body for their rules.

The only rule in KCBS is it can not end up in the box.

The only rule in IBCA is use the foil supplied by the head judge in the box.

Any other use of foil is up to the individual cook and is only a tool. There are no rules on how to use, when to use, where to use it, or why you use it. To the best of my knowledge, no sanctioning body has any rules on the use of foil by cooks prior to turn-in.

Texas crutch I use foil when the meat reaches the proper temp. Some add liquid at 160 or so some add when it's done. Practice makes better there is no perfect.

It's fine to cook with just not in the box for KCBS. In Texas foil is Texas lettuce and can be in the box (check current rules.) The reason it's the Texas crutch is Kansas City smack talk. Texans use it because if you run straight Mesquite and no charcoal by the time an unfoiled brisket is done it can be over smoked and bitter.
