Jeff - Download the judges and cooks packets from the KCBS site. You need to know the rules inside and out BEFORE you start competing.
As for garnish, I like it. It makes the meat look better and it holds it in place for the presentation. I know it's called appearence, but in reality, the judges look at the box for maybe 15-30 seconds. It's really not long enough. If we're to judge the meat only on appearence, the judge should be allowed to remove the meat from the box and actually examine it, IMHO.
