Default Competition Meat prep question

Good morning,

We are a couple weekend warriors looking to enter a contest or two this year. Actually found this forum do to an event when they asked if we were a member of the brethern on the entry form.

Quick question, I know a judge is to inspect your meat the day of the event. Does that mean the product needs to be in it's natural state still cryovac'ed? Can we do any prep ahead of time? It is a KCBS judged event if that makes a difference?

Thank you,

--Ed

For KCBS, trimming is OK, but no seasoning whatsoever. It does not need to be Cryovac'ed.

Yep. Can do the trimming at home, then wrap in plastic wrap. Seasoning/brinning/marinading beforehand is "verboten".

As a side note I would recommend you do trim at home and save yourself some time and energy. Especially chicken...

And you might want to open your ribs ahead of time...

Don't get to a comp like we did and realize things aren't 100% if you know what I mean...
