Luckily I havent had to cross this bridge in a long while. When I have I literally didnt eat it, but would hit the beans and/or tater salad instead. Probably has to do with I'm not much of a sauce guy at all, except on a sandwich, and then usually (not every time) fairly light.
However, in theory, if I HAD to choke something crappy down (last time it was this bad I just threw it away [and I'd paid for it]), I'd probably try to cover it in Blues Hog Tennessee Red.
Hance - Lake Dogs Cooking Team - MiM/MBN/GBA CBJ and comp cook
Lake Sinclair, GA (strategically about an hour from darn near anywhere)
Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.
