Well, I guess it wasn't DQ'd.....it might as well have been.....we recieved 1's across the board for appearance and all 1's from the one judge that didn't get a sample.
The reps went strictly by the book and were very proffesional about it.
I never have figured out why you should recieve 1's for appearance for having
2 ribs that are not completely cut apart. I don't see it being an appearance issue because you can't tell that they aren't completely cut through by veiwing it for appearance. Just when the judge is removing a sample.
On the other hand, I fully understand and agree with recieving all 1's from the judge who didn't recieve a sample.
I guess it's just punitive in nature, no other legitimate reason that I can think of.
But, the rules is the rules............Live and Learn.......
I hope someone else can learn what NOT to do from my mistake.........
From the KCBS rules........#12
Judges may not cut, slice, or shake apart to separate pieces. (If there is not
enough meat for each judge to sample, the shorted judge(s)
will score a one (1) on all criteria, and the judges having
samples will change the Appearance score to one (1).)
