That being said, if the sweetness overpowers the other flavors, and is cloying, then yes, you could score down. Because what it is is cloying and too sweet.

Clear as mud?
"outstanding sweet chicken" would be an oxymoron to me. lol. so maybe the judging criteria is be subjective but open minded?
3 of the top 5 teams in KCBS TOTY, AND the no1 team in Pork were cooking on UDS. AMEN!
