Mister Bob

:idea: So, here's my proposition...is anyone willing to swap a photo of a top five finish for pork for a second place brisket or fourth place chicken?

I just can't seem to get my pork scores up.:confused:
Photos will be exchanged via PM of course.:-D

Interesting that you would post this and want to keep it a closely guarded thing.

I have to wonder if the reason the top teams don't want to share pics is because they have an original presentation they don't want other teams to see, or they have an original presentation they don't want other teams to see.:idea:



Then again, I suck at comps so:wink:

try these.1st ,2nd,3rd. I dont think you will see anything different from many other pics that are posted.It just has to make you want to dive in and get ya some. And you dont need to post your pics if you want to keep em secret its ok.

Oh, I've been around awhile. My crappy presentations are my own laziness, I blame it on nothing else.

Like I said, I suck at comps so far, so.:ohwell:

Great pics. I like that you put 3 different variations of pork in a box. Great idea! :thumb:

Mister Bob...

That looks like a 9 to me !!!

I know some may disagree, I still think sliced pork can be a crapshoot at times in NY... I's just a lot less familiar to judges who are newer, may only judge locally and/or are used to/expecting pulled/chunked pork presented equally well..

Bob, do you have your scores on that? I gotta admit, It looks pretty damn enticing!

whats with the first slice on the left, the pink/grey veiny lookingness to it? Rest looks very good

It must have looked better than it tasted, though I thought it was pretty good! At least Judge #4 agreed!

Appearance scores were 7,8,7,8,7,6
Taste scores were 6,7,7,8,5,6
Tenderness scores were 7,8,8,8,6,7

Judge 1 - 7,6,7
Judge 2 - 8,7,8
Judge 3 - 7,7,8
Judge 4 - 8,8,8
Judge 5 - 7,5,6
Judge 6 - 6,6,7

Rub was The Slabs, Birds and Bones
Sauce was Blues Hog / KC Masterpiece mix, thinned with apple juice
Injection was Butcher's BBQ Pork Injection
Butt was wrapped at 165 with a little apple juice added and removed at 195 in the money muscle.
Rested in the Cambro about 3 hours before pulling

I won't try that combination again!
I am wide open for suggestions.

Bob, you need to turn the slices around... start up in the upper right and work your way around - the piece on top should be at the bottom, not up hidden in the corner. It makes the face of the slices angle away from the judges' eyes, not towards them if you do it the way you did it. See what I mean? Go a little lighter on the sauce. Show more bark on your chunks. Try Slabs Perk Up Your Pork rub instead.

Thanks Jeff, I see what you mean about the arrangement and direction of the slices. I'll also give some of those other ideas a try.

Was a nearly 12 lb butt, purchased from a little meat market in Escanaba, MI

Wish I could find 'em like that all the time!

Bob, That box of yours looks real tasty. No way should that score lower then an 8 or 9 on Appearance. Was that at Hudson Valley?

Abilene, KS this year. 3rd place, actually I was surprised it scored well. I find around here that chunks and money muscle works best. I've never put in shredded pieces but considering for next year.

slabs pork rub, slabs sauce cut with honey. why did you use a chicken rub on pork. I hat all the commercial injections on pork.

Yeah, my pork was real deep at this comp too. It was similar: slices, and chunks. The frustrating thing is that it has come in 1st and 2nd a number of times. I think slices can be a huge risk around here.

Please dont embarrass me. :-D I'll post a more recent one.

Slices can be a bit risky in Northeast. Here is a pretty recent entry I did (slightly unfinished). I have another approach that is even more 'slice heavy'.

That looks great. I haven't found a pork butt bigger than 9lbs or so around here. The search is on!

I'll second that. Although, my best scores up there, were with slices... Probably my lowest scores have been slices as well...

Slices used to work for me. Now I'm going back to shred the hell out of it and cram as much as I can into the box and close it.

Only recently have I seen slices come across the judging table. Most score ok, being
as it's a little different (to us). I really liked Ique's presentation of the slices, it was
more a display of their wonderful bark. Taste is taste; good Q is good Q.
