Default Help: How to prep a KCBS pork box?

Can anyone direct me to a YouTube tutorial video (or the like) showing how one goes about selecting and placing the best pieces of a shoulder into a box. I mean something showing specifically what parts to use (horn meat, tubes, money muscle, etc), where and how they are pulled or cut from and how they are then placed into the box for the sake of presentation?

I've read "Award Winning Competetion Pork" via the "Pickled Pig" and it's a great resource, but a video demonstration showing me how to to do it might serve me a bit better.

Thank you!

Why not just search YouTube for "kcbs pork box" (no quotes)?

I have. I found a few different ones that have been helpful, but not entirely instructional in nature. Just hoping someone has come across something instructional or tutorial that had helped him/her and can make a recommendation.

Classes help out a great deal in this. There's a good amount of them locally available. Other than that, put in only what you feel you cooked the best. If pulled is your best, put it in. It slices are your best, put them in. Check out bbqcritic.com for what real competitiors feel is presentable or doesn't appeal. If you put in chunks, slices, and pulled and two are stellar and one is so so, you will get judged on the so so. Take your time when turning in and practice boxes. Cut out styrofoam and play around with ideas. Sketch it in Google 3-D. You have to be able to think on the fly when it comes to turn in times. If you pulled out your rested meat and it's over-done but you planned on slices and chunks, know how to present pulled pork.

Have you checked out these? They seem to fit your bill. While not all 100% instructional (but some are) they do show where meat in coming from and how it is placed in the box. Not many great free video tutorials online. But stuff like this helped me. BBQ critic is also great.



(this one is pretty good i think)

(this one is more instructional start what you are looking for around 2mins)

(this one while not instructional show what they put in the box and where from the butt it comes from, video quality not great but decent)

(Shows how they lay it in there)

(Another really good one that show where the meat is coming from and how they put it in the box.)
