I'm not sure that there's a REQUIREMENT rule for official pro boxes in KCBS comps or not. I believe that the only garnish you CAN have is green leafy garnish. Could be lettuce or parsley. Most of what I've seen that gets turned in is parsley over a lettuce bed.
In THIS comp, since it was only a backyard, there was no requirement for or against it. So I could have just turned in the ribs in an otherwise empty box. There was also no limitation on garnish. So I could have used any kind of lettuce, or fruits, or veggies like tomato wedges, etc.
I believe that anything OTHER than a green leafy garnish in a KCBS box is considered an unqualified substance and will get you a DQ. A piece of foil is a good way to get you DQ'd, for instance.
