I will use chicken as an example at the Frostbuster contest this year (we did get 1st) The 1st judge circled 7 and 9 and wrote on comment rubbery skin. 2nd judge circled 11 and said a little more salt needed. 3rd judge circled 7,10,11, and 12 and commented skin very easy to bite. 4th judge circled 10 and commented no flavor. 5th judge circled 10 and 11 and said looked great. 6th judge circled 7 and 10 and commented looked good.
What i took from this is different judges want different things, but maybe our taste needs something(needs salt and no flavor comments). One judge had skin come off(when i tasted ours before boxing happened to me too) Our presentation seemed to be good and we seemed to have the right moisture so I need to work on flavor.
