Default A new accomplishment!!

After 5 years of competing I got DAL in a catagory (and not a DQ). At Sams Southgate MI this weekend finished last in pork. I was happy with my turnin even though I didn't like the butts I had to work with. I can't blame it on the rogue judge or two either. It was consistant bad scores across the board. App 9,9,9,8,8,8 taste 7,7,7,7,7,7 tenderness 7,7,7,7,8,8.
Same rubs, sauce, injections that I've won pork with.
Any one else ever achieve this accomplishment?
And would you change anything for the next comp?

different butts (providers) with different additives perhaps? Something skunky on the wood this time? Also, looks like you were pretty hammered in both tenderness and taste. Not cooked long enough, or too long this time, or perhaps the meat cooled too much (which affects both taste and tenderness)?

I RGC'd and then about 6 months later was WAY WAY down the bottom 1/3rd with same recipes and injections. That was my "wheels falling off" endeavor. Something on every single one. I over-cooked the brisket, but not terribly. In cooling it firmed up a little but the taste is much better piping hot than cool. It was my best category. I got confused and pulled the pork a full 30 minutes too soon, so it sat and got stone cold; great hot, this particular recipe not-so-great cold, it was my 2nd best entry. Chicken; some of the skin was good, and on others it was rubbery beyond all belief, 3rd best category, and ribs something was skunky on 2 of the 4 racks that I used, and darned if 1 of them (the skunky meat ones) wasn't the prettiest... I sampled one of the good ribs, but not the bad ones. It went out skunky tasting with a very defined "off" taste, and our scores reflected it (I think the 6's were kind actually). So, a fraction of a point from GC, down to close to the bottom (thankfully not DAL) in a few months.

Recipe wise, look for other factors that caused the tenderness and taste scores to tank, IMHO. I'd look to those first before developing a new flavor profile.

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.

Did you change anything for this comp or is it a tried and true method/recipe?

If it was new, I believe I would jump ship and have a different program for the next time out.


I have not had the pleasure of a DAL, but I have flirted with it on more than one occassion.

Jan............Stay with your same profile. It's worked in past. I think it was just a flyer.

Each contest different butts.........

I cant believe those scores got you DAL. Although I only compete 4-5 times a year, I wouldn't change a thing. Any given table...any given Saturday (at least that's what I try to tell myself when I get down about an entry).

Looks like the judges were throwing out lots of 8s & 9s if that got u DAL. Or maybe it was loaded with the best cooks in the country... Lol

I saw that and thought it must have been some kind fluke or screw up. For what it's worth, I don't think you should change anything.

Don't feel bad Jan, we weren't that far ahead of you and we thought we had one of our better pork cooks. God only knows what happens in that tent.

Sam's Club last year, DAL Chicken!
30. Swamp Boys - 134.8570


I had a 4th in ribs, 8th in pork, 2nd in brisket. Just a lousy 18th in chicken would have made me GC. Instead I came in 10th overall WTF?! Thanks for reminding me...
