Default Chicken box

Our chicken this weekend bombed. It was bland as all get out. But what do you all think of the apperance? I think it needed more color.

I agree, it looks at little light but otherwise it looks great. Is that a Myron Mixon cupcake chicken formation or you own creation?

that'd get a 9 from me all day long. looks delicious.

i think you might be battling with amount of meat/seasoning ratios. those are some big thighs. look great, but will require more seasoning.

Thanks. Nope, those guys are bone in and took some time to get shaped right.

K-Train , what was your scores for appearance? If that was at my table it would be a 9 on appearance. Color looks good to me. Our sauce makes ours darker but that chicken looks great.

Not to hijack the thread, but along the same lines....Do you guys think most judges want a lighter color sauced chicken, as seen above, or a mahogany color like Blues Hog gives you?

Not to hijack your hijack, but judges "don't want" anything....
They are there to judge only what you present to be judged.

Two 9's, two 8's, and two 7's.

That actually is thinned out Blue Hog (white grape juice and another thinner sauce). I think I may have thinned it too much.

I was thinking 8 myself. Yes, probably thinned too much.

Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. 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.

Kieth,

I don't know where the 7's came from. I judged a very similar looking box at Pork in the Park, but I think the sauce was lighter in color than yours, and I scored it a 9 on appearance (as I would yours).

The sample I had got hammered on texture. The one I judged was like biting a racketball! Really, I didn't even get through the skin with the first bite.

Thanks. Ours came out pretty bite through, just didn't have any flavor. Of course I only sampled one, so it could have been ours.

I'm no judge, but those look damn near perfect to me.

I'd prolly give it an 8 or 9 for Appearance my self. It's appealing enough to make me want a sample right now! Cheers!!!

Hey Keith, nice meeting you if only briefly. That's a nice looking box. You did a great job with the trimming.
