We have all heard these statements and 100's more like them.
"I marked it down because there weren't any burnt ends."
"Thick sliced brisket, must be over done."
"No skin on the chicken? Guess they can't cook chicken skin"
"No sliced money muscle? a 2 point deduction"
Yes, yes, I know. And be rest assured, that is the way we judge/score. We do NOT score up or down based on "missing things", or the like.
We score the way we want to be scored!
You wont hear any of those statements from us.
