Default Why no Pooling of Sauce?

I was wondering if any one could explain to me the reason behind the ban on sauce pooling and puddling in KCBS. I acknowledge that it is a rule and am not trying to rail against it, just to understand why it's there and what it's trying to prevent.

Thanks,

dmp

I'm assuming it could be a way of marking a box.

It's a meat contest not sauce.

As an outside observer, my first question is why do they allow any sauce then?

I think it is mostly because it could be a way of marking your box.

I had always heard it was because of marking, but since there's already a rule about that then why have a specific one for pooling?

This doesn't make sense to me and comes across as a cop out. As was mentioned, if it's a meat contest and not a sauce contest, then don't allow sauce. KCBS allows sauce.

As for marking, there's already a rule against that.

There's also already a rule against sauce on the side.

Again, I'm not trying to argue the rule. I'm not saying that "sauce pooling should be legal." I'm still wondering the intent of this....

I didn't notice the last line of the above post originally. I guess I confused it for part of the sig. My understanding (and some one please correct me if I'm wrong) is that if sauce drips off of your meat and is caught and/or disbursed by your garnish, but is not visible, then that is not a violation of the pooling rule. Similarly, if the sauce happens to pool underneath the garnish, it is not a violation.

It seems like it is one of the ways to mark a box that may be accidental so they mention it so perhaps you don't mistakenly do so. Makes sense to me.
