Folks, I a newbie here. Somebody educate me and tell me what's wrong some of these boxes? They don't look so bad to me. Too much garnish?

Here is a pic from my first and only competition, the Garry Maddox BBQ challenge in Philly last year.

Critiques are welcome!

The bottom and top both look a little burnt on the outside, so if you did a 4 x 4 stack of ribs, four bottom, four top, bones towards the back but exposed, you could hide those two on the bottom row.

Stacking works better on spare ribs than it does for baby back ribs. The curved bones can be troublesome when trying the stacked presentation that EVERY spare cooker does these days.

nope... not EVERY spare cooker...

if I'd done a parsley box(never gonna happen tho) I'd put those ribs on TOP of the parsley... they are kinda smudged up and they look a little lost so deep in there with all that green.
They do look mmmmeaty ...

Thanks both of you's guys! This was the box I did at RocCity for Ribfest on the mini reverse flow i built. My wife had run off with my daughter to the beach, Julie and Skip were judging and customers kept popping in my tent saying, "wow! Whatcha doing? what you should do is..." LOL!

I say previous to that I had never cooked ribs myself for once I was lost and boiled then grilled and what's a membrane? lol. Now I am found!

Ok I'm kinda new to comps but I never thought of taking pictures of my turn ins and now I can see a benefit in it. :-P
Makes it easier to go back and see what went wrong. :shock:

You must be the only cook left in the country to NOT take the Rod and Johnny class. :wink:

Chicken

My chicken yesterday was done an hour early, I brushed (obviously) instead of dipped, didn't trim up evenly, sizes didn't match well, and I only cooked 9 pieces so no fudge factor and I needed it! Putting green wasn't very good either. (it did place 6th though!!!)

here's my first comp brisket box. :icon_blush:

36th of 39

Can someone post thier worst box and then what they think is thier best box so we can contrast the two. I would start, but we are new and never took pictures (we are going to start at the next comp).

Thanks,
Frank

Rick's Tropical Delight 07-13-2009 05:10 PM

i don't think that will happen frank. that would be an entirely new thread. this thread is the worst boxes and what not to do. people will not post winning box photos. it's a big secret. :roll:

Wow! I am sorry I missed this post when it first started but here is my contribution to the madness. This brisket is from my first solo comp at Madison Ribberfest in 2008 - What was I thinking? Obiviously I wasn't thinking at all! These did not come in "dead last" but both feet were definitely in the grave! lol! :-D
