Default Comp Chicken Flavor profile

Does Competition Chicken do better with a homemade sauce or a Doctored up sauce. Two weeks ago I used a home-made sauce and got sratight 8's across the board from all 6 judges. Would I be nuts to change sauces for this weekend? Chicken has me banging my head agains the wall.

Dan - I try and keep doing the same thing for at least a few comps to see if the results are consistent. There's always the chance that you hit a very good or a not so good table every once in a while so the long term average will give you a better idea of how you're doing.

^^^^ what he said.

Don't change a thing yet, if you do another and the results still aren't what you want, then consider it, but just one comp isn't cause for alarm IMO.

If you got straight 8's you're in the right direction. Stick with it. One contest does not make a good sample. Stick with your sauce through several and see what the trend is.

All commercial sauces started as homemade sauces. If your's is working...don't change it. As long as you can make it consistent you should be good to go!

I wouldn't change if you're getting straight 8's...see what it yields over the next few contests. I've done both and gotten good and bad reviews either way. That being said I will gladly add to Paul's cash offer.
