This is a classic thread!!! What a bunch of crappy boxes! Kind of fun to look back and have a good laugh at yourself. Like Kapn said, we all expected to win it all with these entries.

I only wish I could add several of the boxes I saw as a judge last weekend... some horrendous boxes in ribs and brisket especially!

For this one, we actually got all 9's in appearance, and Ribberfest in 2005... Those judges were blind!

OK, pork, brisket, ribs...I can see where we all faulter but WTF do some people do to their chicken thighs?!?! I mean, they start off almost how they look in the end as far as shape. Mista, did you walk on your thighs with golf cleats? LOL!! Great thread!!

50th place pork from last weekend...

Bigmista 10-24-2008 12:34 PM

Those weren't my thighs. I was inquiring about someone elses.

Bigmista 10-24-2008 12:36 PM

Did you consider adding some meat to your sauce?

Unlike Scottie, whos NEVER had a bad box, I can't say that for the Bellys! :twisted:


Only because I don't have any pictures. No pictures...Never happened...:roll: That's what I keep telling myself at least...

U2CANQUE 10-24-2008 04:15 PM

I go with that theory too.......is that not the motto?

U2CANQUE 10-24-2008 04:16 PM

But, you are more than welcome to post on the best boxes there Scottie....we promise to not share......:icon_shy

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.

I don't understand why you would be thooth picking brisket? Am I missing something??

cause I was a dumbass who listened to everything everyone said:rolleyes:

Someone on some forum said to stick a toothpick in in line with the grain on your brisket to know where to slice. Worked OK other than the fact that the toothpick was blue and stained the meat. I never really had a problem knowing where to slice but I tried something different at a time I shouldn't have been experimenting.

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

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

is it brisket?

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:

and those were the best you had to pick from to make your box?

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

looks like something i would like to eat - bet it taste good
