Your serious about BBQ and most of ur cooks are unsanctioned?...
And for the others....don't judge all Texas cooks by the same standard.
And Jmoney Texas events do include appearance. While it is combined and not a separate score taste judges are still instructed to include it.....oops that's in sanctioned events with serious cooks.
And one more thing.....TQ is not against the rules. However serious cooks don't need to use it.....just sayin
