To add to Ray's comment about bringing pork ... I was eating a pork sandwich last night I had little bits of bone in the pork - And I didn't even do anything to the pork I brought home (meaning after I had what I needed for the pulled pork and sliced pork, I put the rest in a covered tin and into my smoker to stay warm until I put it into the cooler (as is) later. Puzzled to say the least where these bits of bone came from. I wonder if one of the judges would have also had a bite of bone??? One judge gave me a 766. The 6 in both taste and tenderness does raise a yellowish flag based on our other pork scores, especially tenderness. The other's scores were 878 788 667 898 788. Total of 152.000 for those of you counting at home - winning score of 162.2856.
Turn in pictures will come as soon as they get sent to me.
