Lesson learned. Keep it between the lines. I knew appearance scores would suffer (and they did with three 8's and three 7's) but I wanted to see if a bit of a different flavor could pay off. Two loved it, two thought it was good and the other two didn't like it. Ended up 40th place. Now back to your regularly scheduled chicken recipes.
Jeez. Sorry to hear that. (OP here)

What does that say about KCBS contests if every team must strive to produce examples the same standard product? it seems kind of sad to me. Or is that not the right diagnosis?

Just out of curiosity, are you willing to say what you did? Pix?
