What about the judge whose only comment on Chicken#1 was "it didn't have bite-through skin"? Where does it say in the KCBS rulebook that chicken must have bite-through skin?

A judging category is tenderness. If the skin is not bite through then your sample is not very tender.

I thought the same thing. I also wondered where they found time between this and ribs to do that much commentary. Interesting video, thanks for sharing! She also mentions uniformity in the box multiple times, as well as the box is "messy" anyone could have tilted or otherwised done something to have caused this after it was turned in.

Then later, at about 23 minutes, judge is talking about presentation. I thought we were judged on appearance, taste, and texture? I suppose that is a common error

The one comment that I thought was strange was the judge that mentioned "The piece I ended up getting looked a little burned on one side and that didn't help it." After you've judged appearance, unless there is a rule infraction, shouldn't you rule that out of the tasting/tenderness judging?

Another of these was done following the local contest in Gilbert, AZ. I find them fascinating. Like it or not, valid criticism or not, those are still the opinions that are going on the score sheet!

My evil twin would also be immensely gratified if each judge prefaced their remarks with the number of years and number of contests they had judged.

You think that being burnt on one side is going to be good for the taste and tenderness? or you think the judges should just eat around the burnt parts and not score down for it?

Also heard the "all pieces not the same size" thing on chicken a few times. I mean, if it takes away from the overall appeal and makes it less appetizing (as chicken, mind you), I completely understand. Otherwise, where does it say they must all be the same size, and on that note me, personally, as a judge. really like chicken to look like a piece of chicken and not little red balls of luv that happen to hide chicken. To me they look fake, and frankly aren't appetizing, because I cant think of a time where chicken looks good and appetizing in a ball. I guess I'm just a mutant.

Otherwise it says a lot of what I and many others have said here; too salty doesn't play; too sweet doesn't play; too hot (spice) doesn't play, and that tenderness and taste really are separate and judges can score it separately.

I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.

They said it looked burnt, not that it tasted burnt. If it tasted burnt, heck yeah it should be counted down.

Great video bother. Amazing how some folk bitch about one single comment. I guess they don't get it about it isn't perfect. Not much is perfect in life, much less bbq.
