I did my first judging in Wildwood NJ this past weekend. I made a point of trying to say hello to all the Brethren competing there that weekend. I did this on Saturday before the Sunday turn in. On judging day I went to the judging tent and signed in. Did not leave the tent till judging was completed. After the experience of my first judging I do not see any way that there could be cheating by the judges. I am not a competition BBQ'er but do a lot of smoking and grilling for friends and family. After the judging was completed I walked around again to say hello to my fellow Brethren. My wife was with me and we both had a wonderful time.
