One big thing I forgot to add. DON'T use a SPICY/HOT sauce on your submissions. This may be a regional thing, the judges at my table were from NY, VT, and CT, but there was a fairly lengthy discussion about this. The consensus was that a spicy entry affects the judge’s taste buds so that they can not fairly judge other entries. The thoughts were that since the turn in times are every half hour, the pallet doesn't have enough time to be cleansed before eating another entry. Personally, I like spicy. But the experienced judges were saying that a spicy entry would be judged harshly because of this. Again, it may be regional, and it may be wrong, but that's what was said
