Greg and I took the class
There was a pork submission with no greens at all.
People trashed it on presentation.
So I concur, add something, or you'll be farked.
Me, I gave the mountain of pulled pork a 8 on presentation, only to be given looks by other judges. I could see good smoke ring pork in a pile. Non Q judges saw a pile of meat.
So spend the time and put in the green, I concur
