I have not judged a competition but have eaten quite a bit of competition ribs. What I have found in most of the ribs is that they taste very similar. It's because the rules are such that it places them into a box and cooks are dictated to cook the ribs in that fashion. I understand that there has to be certain criteria to be met to be judged but I think there should be some other rule or personal opinion thrown into the judging that would give the ribs and cooks a wider spectrum to have a wider variety of BBQ. It should be what people like, not what the rules have made it to be!

For me I like my ribs to have a little pull off the bone but not FOTB. I also don't like a lot of smoke to my ribs (it makes them taste hammy). I get a slight smoke going, wrap, and finish with sauce.

Smoke flavor should not make your ribs taste hammy but solution added ribs will taste hammy though.

I love my ribs tender either way. However after finally trying competition ribs I now prefer them to FOTB. Like many have said it has to do with the texture of the meat. If cooked too long FOTB is very mushy. I was ignorant for too long, but still will chow down on either rib.

I cook the best ribs I can and put them in the box. I would never turn anything in that I don't like to eat. The only minor modification is just adding a bit "more" of everything with the understanding that a judge is just going to eat one bite.
