After that the TLC BBQ Reality Show came along and it was a fast paced deal. Myron Mixon never intended to get or want points from two contests.

It is honorable for Myron Mixon to request the modification in the awards. That’s a stand up person for doing something like that.
So it sounds like he cooked in 2 contests the same weekend with the same name? Regardless of when he signed up he still knew he was cooking 2 comps with the same name and is a violation of the rules win or not.

It is a very standup thing to do, when you think it cost him about 12,000 in award money just from Mesquite.

Always better to admit and ask for mercy than the alternative. Not bad at all.
