Default Cooking vs "Prep" and KCBS Rule #2

Not wanting to hijack the Cool / Uncool thread so I'll ask here. Please - NO ONE IS BEING ACCUSED OF UNETHICAL CONDUCT. The other thread just got me wondering

KCBS rule #2 states:
Quote:
2) Each team shall consist of a chief cook and as many assistants as the chief cook deems necessary.
A team shall not compete in more than one contest under the same team name, on the same date.
Chief cooks and/or assistant cooks may only cook for their designated team at the contest they are attending.


In your opinion, where's the line? When does helping out another team become a violation?

To me "cooking" is when I've picked up a knife and am working on or seasoning food; having it in the cooker, or slicing, finishing or plating. What's your definition?

Some specific situations
Is it OK or a violation to:
  • Help another team prep their meat
  • Tend another team's fire in their pit while they sleep
  • Build another team's boxes
Inquiring minds what to know.

I think your misinterpreting the rule itself. I think the rules is geared towards a a cook working the entire contest for two separate teams. I have sat down with dozens of teams and shown them how to make a parsley putting green. I have walked over to a new team next to me after i notice they were slicing their brisket wrong and jumped in to show them them the right way. I have received help from other cooks along the way as well. I think it more of a mentoring thing than a violation.

I would say that all of those things would be a violation. If you think that a fire is about to go out...wake them up. Show them how to build a box, but don't build it. All things meat related other than loaning supplies or suggesting a flavor profile...I would stay away from.

It's about the learning experience to me.

agreed. sometimes one needs to look at the spirit of the rule and not the letter of the law.

"can you help me prep my meat, i'm way behind"
yes, i can, tell me how you want it and i'll do some with you.
"can you help me prep my meat, i'm new and have no idea"
sure, i'll show you what i do, and see if you like it.
"can you tend my fire while i sleep"
um, sorry, but i don't know your cooker at all...i can't be trusted with it.
or,
sure, i'll be up to about 1AM, i'll walk over a couple times and look at the temp, if it goes way out of whack, i'll give you a kick.
"can you help me build my boxes"
i can show you what i do regarding parsley, or offer tips on meat arrangement, but, sorry, i'll be a bit busy at the time with mine, and i really shouldn't handle your meat

those are kinda my thoughts.

since we are talking about rules violations:

CAUSES FOR DISQUALIFICATION & EVICTION of a team, its
members and/or guests: A cook team is responsible jointly
and severally for its head cook, its team members and its
guests.
a. Excessive use of alcoholic beverages or public
intoxication with a disturbance.**
b. Serving alcoholic beverages to the general public.
c. Use of illegal controlled substances.
d. Foul, abusive, or unacceptable language or any
language causing a disturbance.
e. Excessive noise, including but not limited to that


Damn, if this were truly enforced their would be quite a few empty 20 x 20's come sunrise ...

you can give all the advice you want and it's encouraged. Even to telling a person to move the knife angle to get a better product. Not sure as a cook how you would have time to tell them during turn in or why you would be watching them do turn in boxes but you can.

What is not allowed is hands on. Simple to understand.

I tend to agree (which ain't worth much ).

KCBS have officers and reps (and other folks that are probably on the payroll?).

I know they have an annual meeting and go over amendments and stuff.
Seems this might be something to bring up with them.

This brought to mind the cooks meeting where the reps talk about mentoring a new team. I don't think helping explain what you do with boxes (not sitting down and building all 4), basic make sure you do this..... , keep in mind to watch ........ , We all make comments to new and old teams alike.

Taking the rule as it is written, along with the below definition, it would seem trimming, box building etc would not be considered cooking, but then I am not an attorney nor a KCBS rep.

I am not claiming to be a cook either, the closest I get to the below definition is numbers 11 & 12. Oh and #10 too!

I guess it amounts to whatever your definition of is is.

EXPAND 4. Informal . to falsify, as accounts: to cook the expense figures.

COLLAPSE

–verb (used without object) 5. to prepare food by the use of heat.

6. (of food) to undergo cooking.

7. Slang . a. to be full of activity and excitement: Las Vegas cooks around the clock.

b. to perform, work, or do in just the right way and with energy and enthusiasm: That new drummer is really cooking tonight. Now you're cooking!

c. to be in preparation; develop: Plans for the new factory have been cooking for several years.

d. to take place; occur; happen: What's cooking at the club?




–noun 8. a person who cooks: The restaurant hired a new cook.

Disclaimer - my comments are from the contest organizer point of view. When it comes down to a question on the rules, I've told teams many times: "If in doubt, don't do it." Additionally, if you see something going on that looks questionable, contact the organizer or one of the on site KCBS Reps. You should have been provided contact information for them in your cooks' packet. Looking into these sorts of questions is part of their job. In my opinion there's a huge difference between offering advice and actually doing the work.
