You are 100% right on that! Take at least two good sized bites of each piece so that you can give a fair score.

Middle seats are always either the 3rd or 4th pick from the turn in box.
I like the end seats - fat guy mod.
Don't put your fingers that you have been licking all over the entries that you are not eating when picking out a piece of meat from the box. Don't take up so much room at the judging table that the ones sitting beside you are cramped. Be considerate of the other judges.
Ditto on the fingers - yuck! As for taking up too much room, see above comment ;>)
..... You are not there merely to eat good BBQ.
