The meat is gonna be cool by the time the judges get it. Between loading the box, turning in the box, the boxes being picked up by the table captains, presented to the judges for appearane and then finally the selection by the judges for each one of their samples...well, it can easily be 20 minutes from the time you turn-in and the judges actually taste the meat.
At small events sometimes the chicken is pretty hot but I don't remember getting hot ribs, pork, or brisket very often.
