I may upset some folks but here's a thought. How about everyone is upset with table 4 or judge 6 or whatever the case may be just keep it to themselves. I have read every post on this thread. Some were good and others not so much. You would think that there were black helicopters flying over BBQ contest with sercret service agents talking into a judges earpiece on how to score the event.
Why can't some of you just understand that there is a new score sheet. Period. They aren't using comment cards for right now. Period. That some days you will turn in the same product and get 1st at one comp and 20th at another. Sometimes your food is great and some days it just flat out stinks. How about we all just embrace the changes that are taking place and see how it goes.
It's a new system. There are going to be mistakes. Deal with it and carry on.
