Your WORST Box Ever! (What Not to Turn in!)
 
Someone suggested a thread where we post our worst turn-in box ever so I'll get it started. This was my very first turn-in at the American Royal in 2005. Seems I pretty much ignored all the stuff I learned here leading up to that contest. :roll: This is utterly HORRIBLE! I've progressed a small bit since then. :shock:

Ohhh yeahhh :shock:

I can so dominate this thread. Here are pics from my first competition, where I obviously had no clue. I think everything tasted as bad as it looked.

Looking at what we do now, which still needs work, makes me wonder how drunk I really was that day.

big brother smoke 10-22-2008 01:58 PM

The worst box was the one I got DQ for being 20 seconds late, lol!

KC_Bobby 10-22-2008 02:24 PM

Only one?

OK Joes 2007, our first comp - Looks like we tried our hardest to hide it.

This is a brisket practice box I did in January, 2005,,(after my first 2 contests in the fall of 2004),,,,,,

I remember at the time I thought I had done quite well,,,,,,:shock:

rbinms33 10-22-2008 02:52 PM

I don't have pics but I can describe the two worst boxes that I have seen.

#1

I know parboiling ribs is against the rules but if I didn't know any better I would have thought they were. The appearance looked like somebody cut them up with a chainsaw and there was no color to them. A lot of grease in the box too, especially when the table captain tipped the box during appearance and it pooled at the bottom. When I went to grab one by the bone, the meat fell off so I scooped up some meat and put it on the plate.

#2

Pork slices were in a box and although it looked pretty good, one of the slices was showing the vein with blood around it. I don't believe anyone sampled that piece.

Bentley 10-22-2008 02:53 PM

Ohhh, I should be a Natrual at this game...
 
As I recall, this was so overcooked I was happy just to get 6 pieces in the box! And this was not that long ago.

I think it is hillarious what some of you think bad is...It is better than the stuff I turn in now!

Arlin_MacRae 10-22-2008 02:57 PM

You know, this is as instructional as it is hilarious! We should sticky it...

Sledneck 10-22-2008 03:01 PM

Thanks for the labels...otherwise I might have been stumped:wink:

Scottie 10-22-2008 03:23 PM

I would of thought that brisket box was a pork box...

Thank goodness I use a FE-100. It turns out perfect food every single time... I've never had a bad box... :roll:

I heard that you stick little compressed pills of the each meat and the FEC spits them out full size and award winning :rolleyes:

Here's one that's pretty bad...

http://www.thesurvivalgourmet.com/im...ry/Autry71.jpg

This is from our first contest at the Autry. I didn't have a clue.

MilitantSquatter 10-22-2008 06:45 PM

These were my first boxes during a practice run at home under contest timing the week prior to my first contest a few years back. Pics were actually taken approx 15 minutes after each turn in time so we could see what it looked like after it sat a while.

Boy.. I've learned a lot since then !!

Finally, a thread where I can compete with the pictures. This is a hot azz mess of a brisket box, I think it was from Butler 2006. I am pretty sure I was trying to bury the brisket in the lettuce.

Podge 10-22-2008 07:59 PM

I have to say, i really enjoyed this thread !.. it's been interesting to see everyone's first time boxes..now i hope i didn't pick up any bad habits before this weekend !!..:lol: thanks for sharing you all !!.. when i get back, i'll have to dig up some of my first time boxes and put them on there. I think i can hang right in there with some of these pics so far !!!

Ask and you shall receive !!!

Aside from the rack dropping fiasco :icon_pissed, this box was also very lousy in that it was the first time ans only time I cooked thighs in competition.

Even worse when you rely on the 13th place chicken king to do your trimming. We ended up torching the few remaining ones that would not get anyone sick on a Kettle to make up for lost time. Skin shriveled up quickly.

This is a really chitty box... but the good news was that four other boxes placed worse than this one (68th of 72) :biggrin:

Just Pulin' Pork 10-22-2008 09:21 PM

Jeff awesome thread! This is from Pleasant Hill 2008! This is known as "Brisket Salad". I was afraid to add tomatoes for fear of getting DQ'ed

CajunSmoker 10-22-2008 09:21 PM

I love this, cause I can make some ugly boxes:icon_blush:

First brisket box, IBCA contest in Darbonne, La last year. Had to cut off the side cause I used a colored toothpick and turned the meat blue:biggrin:, and it was just a trainwreck of a brisket anyway:redface: Should have been DQ'd.

http://i299.photobucket.com/albums/m...r/IMG_0096.jpg

and here's an ugly pork box from Memphis this year. Looked good to me at the time:rolleyes:

I wasn't even going to turn it in, but my wife made me.
What is really bad is that it took 4th place (out of 9 teams) in a non-sanctioned comp.:biggrin:

I think the judges might not have had many teeth. Chewing your brisket is over-rated anyway.

Jeff_in_KC 10-22-2008 09:26 PM

LOL! This is hilarious! Glad I got the ball rolling! Keep adding! And Arlin's idea to sticky it... perfect!!!

MilitantSquatter 10-22-2008 09:35 PM

This was just a total mess from an early contest.. I can't believe I turned this in !!

Jeff_in_KC 10-22-2008 10:01 PM

Hey Vinny, looks like someone threw up in your turn-in box! You should keep the boxes more secure before you fill them! :twisted::lol:

I was thinking it went through a press.

Anyway, it's great to know that most everyone went through the learning curve and still might have a bad box from time to time.

Gowan 10-22-2008 11:50 PM

OK, I've got the worst of the worst right here! (Johnny would kill me if he knew I posted this pic). What do you do when you burn up fresh trout? Why smother it in Dijion mustard of course!

http://img357.imageshack.us/img357/9...sterzb4.th.gifhttp://img357.imageshack.us/images/thpix.gif

DISCLAIMER - While my team did actually present this box to the judges at Dillard, I personally had nothing to do with it. Really. You do believe me, right? :oops:

nuff said .... yuk..

but it was our first contest and it took 5th. The parsley in the middle covered a huge hole in the brisket.

Plowboy 10-23-2008 12:04 AM

Good looking parsley, though.
