Not me... I don't start laughing til I get the check at the awards ceremony confirming how nice my boxes look.

Are you SERIOUS about this??? You think it's unfair to new teams who don't know what to put in their boxes??? Let me say this - and it's not a knock on new teams because we've ALL been there - but most new teams don't have a clue what to put in their boxes when it comes to garnish OR meat! That's just the way it is. And you know what... they LEARN. They can learn how to garnish just like they learn how to cook and what to cook. Like Phil says - anyone can cook great BBQ but you have to learn HOW to compete. Garnish is part of that. If we were gonna be fair to all the new teams, we'd explain step by step, give them our recipes and build their boxes for them.

This I have proposed.

So you spent money on culinary school and still can't make a parsley bed look good? It's still about the meat, regardless of whether or not parsley and lettuce are there.

How do you know? Maybe they do. Have you ever been to a parsley contest to be able to definitively make this statement?
