Congrats to Butcher BBQ! I love your products and was pulling for you while watching.
A couple observations...
I found it interesting that the show keyed on the fact that Butcher has been a butcher for years and will have an advantage in that department. Then Tuffy commented on "knife skills" when looking at his ribs. There were a couple other "tells" during the show that seemed a bit fishy. I'm not going to say it's rigged but I'm not so sure the judging is as blind as they portray.
