I think stainless steel tables should be banned too. The metal will suck the heat out of meat faster than a heat lamp could put it back in!
Ford, I 100% agree that KCBS shouldn't have unenforceable rules. But, through time, the rules have evolved reactively in response to cookers' actions. And in some instances the rules contradict each other. I personally believe that food handling and safety rules should trump any other rule out there.
Just as a cma caveat here, I'm speaking as a cook not a board member. But as the head of the rules committee, you better believe that I read and chew on all postings regarding rules. Please keep it coming!
