We weren't. While I freely admit I didn't put much effort into the contest when I competed @ Pleasantville last year, I was given the rules that are below.

so commercial rubs and sauces and anything else not homemade or owned by tyson would not be allowed.
I admit, I do not know what tyson owns.
But anyway, I think it is a great contest and I am glad for the finalist.
I agree, think its a cool contest and am happy for the finalists. This seems to be another one of the things that sort of "evolved" as this contest went along. I too am not sure what Tyson owns, however I'd be willing to wager dinner they dont own Big Poppa's or Texas Pepper Jelly.
I understand they are also having trouble with people outside the US having difficulty voting which is probably troubling to the Canadian finalist. Again not a dig, just another thing I hope they would work out if they continue thus contest.
