Default First DQ

I headed up to Rochester, MN for their comp this week. Really, really well organized! Had lots of fun and met some Brethren. I was in a great mood because my neighbor got a vending trailer and let me borrow his camper. It was like I was living in luxury. I was really happy with how things were going. Then I saw a rep walk up to my door. Apparently I didn't use a sharp enough knife to cut my ribs as two were stuck together.

No one to blame but myself. I have a routine with ribs that is supposed to guarantee that this doesn't happen. But I guess I missed something.

As much as it sucked to get the news, I can't imagine what it must be like for reps to deliver that news. It must be a horrible job. The reps in Rochester were great. No lecture, just sympathy. For all the things that may be wrong with KCBS, I felt like those reps (William and Debra Gage) did a great job of enforcing the rules while also being good people, and good BBQ folks.

Guess I don't understand how you got DQ. If one judge didn't get his/her meat then that should have been the score that was dropped. what am I missing?

That is a severe kick in the teeth to you and your team for sure.
We inspect every rib after being cut and then place them individualy in the box.
Better luck next time.

I may be using the wrong language. Whatever it was, it sucked and I learned my lesson

Per KCBS rules:

"All judges will give a one (1) in Appearance for unapproved garnish, pooled sauce or less than 6 samples of meat."

Come on down to the lake and I'll buy you a commiserate beer.

Monty, I was actually talking to the judge this happened to after the contest. She is a master judge and felt terrible this happened to a team. Quoting her, she said the two ribs we're held together by a very thin piece. She picked up the rib and saw the two we're connected. Held them over the box for a couple of seconds hoping they would fall apart, but they didn't. So, the last judge didn't have a rib to judge. Really sorry to find out this was your team it happened to.
On a happier note, it was really great meeting you this weekend. If anyone needs your knives sharpened, Monty is the guy to do it. Did a great job on ours. Thanks again.

Sorry to hear that, Nate. I have a recurring nightmare about a rep walking up to me during turn-ins

That really bites, Nate. I always cut, slide to the side 2-3 inches, cut, slide,etc. I forget who showed me that, but it sunk in. I've been the judge who lifted up two ribs & I've been the one not to get a rib - it hurts either way.

I was one who discovered two slices of brisket stuck together a couple years ago. No matter what the DQ reason is, my heart just sinks because I know what it means to the cook/team that turned it in. It's heartbreaking and I hate it when a DQ happens.

I judged a comp last week and I picked up 2 ribs out of the box. Luckily there were more than 6 pieces.

Monty happened to me this weekend as well in Pacific MO. I had Carolyn Wells as the rep who came and told me. I got in a hurry and did not ensure each was separated like I normally do..... With a 4th in chicken, 13th pork and 10th brisket and the ribs if were just average would have been in top 10 instead of 35th out of 40 teams.. sucked!
