There is only 1 best rib on the table. These judges also only get a rib or two apiece.

Onsite judges (3 of them) come in 20 min increments. You have 10-15 minutes to present them a picture of your entire process. You present these judges an entire rack of ribs. Many eat the whole dang thing. Many teams will kick up the flavor on the blinds and then cook their "normal" ribs for onsite.
Would love to be able to schedule MIM. Hopefully some day.

How would you characterize the "normal" ribs and how are they different them from the ribs turned in for blind judging? Sweeter, less sweet, more sauce, sauce on side, etc?
