alittle over done

Looking at what we do now, which still needs work, makes me wonder how drunk I really was that day.
looks a little dry

OK Joes 2007, our first comp - Looks like we tried our hardest to hide it.

2007 Ankeny Ducks Unlimited - 4 slices ... slices of something

2007 American Royal - 411th place!
those did need work

I think it is hillarious what some of you think bad is...It is better than the stuff I turn in now!
i am sure you have done better

Boy.. I've learned a lot since then !!
is it brisket?

looks like it would have scored well on taste

could be neater

Aside from the rack dropping fiasco , this box was also very lousy in that it was the first time ans only time I cooked thighs in competition.

Even worse when you rely on the 13th place chicken king to do your trimming. We ended up torching the few remaining ones that would not get anyone sick on a Kettle to make up for lost time. Skin shriveled up quickly.

This is a really chitty box... but the good news was that four other boxes placed worse than this one (68th of 72)
and those were the best you had to pick from to make your box?

but it was our first contest and it took 5th. The parsley in the middle covered a huge hole in the brisket.
looks like something i would like to eat - bet it taste good

First brisket box, IBCA contest in Darbonne, La last year. Had to cut off the side cause I used a colored toothpick and turned the meat blue, and it was just a trainwreck of a brisket anyway Should have been DQ'd.

and here's an ugly pork box from Memphis this year. Looked good to me at the time

why the foil in the box?

what did you put on your brisket that turned it red like that?

what part of the chicken was that and how did you get the pork red like that

For this one, we actually got all 9's in appearance, and Ribberfest in 2005... Those judges were blind!

There's more, but I must stop!
did you cover that chicken in chocolate
