Honestly, whether it's personal pride and you just dont turn that in, or
the concern for the health of your fellow citizen, this shouldn't make it
even in a box to be turned in. Turn in an empty box if you had to. Me,
scoring 0 in KCBS (this was MIM though), you can only be DAL (Dead Ass
Last), and these were definitely DAL caliber, to the tune of DAL of all
contests in the region for an entire year DAL. I would've hoped they'd
had enough personal pride to just throw those away. Honestly, we've
all made grill mistakes here and there.

Personal Experience with thowing away $100 in meat:

We had a next-day party after my 2nd wedding a few years back. I had
many requests for my competition pulled pork that has done pretty well
'round these parts. Long story, one I will NOT share, but those pork
butts and 2 nice fresh hams all went into the garbage, and I mean ALL
of them... Napping, at the wrong time, when using a stick burner, ala.
that doofus on the BBQ PitMasters show, can be disasterous!!!! Recall,
this is the night after my wedding... Oh well, the hamburgers were
very good.... :-)
Hance - Lake Dogs Cooking Team - MiM/MBN/GBA CBJ and comp cook
Lake Sinclair, GA (strategically about an hour from darn near anywhere)
Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.
