Overcook them A LOT, not just slightly. You should be able to pull the meat from the bone with no resistance using 2 fingers. If you can pick up the rib bone and pull it out without the meat moving, that's probably still OK.

We did that one year in Troy and over 50% of the people that tried them voted for us. (Of course we didn't realize it's also a volume game. We just cooked the provided case, and got buried by people cooking 8 cases - something else to keep in mind. You can also buy tickets and vote for yourself, or pool the ribs from 5-6 teams together to get the volume up. All of these tricks are why we don't do people's choice much anymore.)
