Default Going Naked at a KCBS Comp....

Not me, but my box. Thinking about turning in my pork butt and brisket box without any garnish! Genius, idiot, or fool? What do you guys think?

I know most here will say you're nuts, but I wish this was the norm. Building a box is the most daunting part of the comp for me. If it wasn't for that I think I would enjoy comps a lot more.

At which contest? Judges are suppose to judge what is presented! That being said, if it is at a contest I'll be cooking, go for it, I need all the help I can get

If you do please follow up with how you appearance was scored. Would be cool to hear feedback from someone who did it.

I've come very close to doing it a couple times but have yet been able to pull the trigger. Everyone kept telling it was suicide. Maybe this year....

I wouldnt do it, personally, but that's because IMHO even if not judged directly, the color contrast of the green background really frames the reddish nature of BBQ extremely well.

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.

If you do it like FBA cooks do & make a bed of meat instead of greens, it might work better. Otherwise it depends on how much meat you put in the box & layout. I think it might work better w/ brisket than pork due to the fact you can put burnt end chunks along w/ the slices & fill up the box pretty well & it look fine.

We all piss and moan about making boxes but ill be damned if naked boxes don't look like chit. Parsley and lettuce hide meat juices and just class everything up.

To not start a war, I think it's BS if your getting scored on how uniform your parsley is, I just think greens make the boxes infinanetly better

I don't like making boxes either, but with that being said, people eat with their eyes first and then their mouths! Presentation is of utmost importance whether it be a clamshell at a bbq comp, or plating a fine entre' on china.

Thanks for everyone's input. Planning on pulling the trigger on this at the Tupelo comp. About 100 teams there, may make me stand out or fall flat, who knows. I'll let everyone know how it turns out. Still 50/50 on it, but leaning on doing this....gotta swing hard to hit a home run!

We don't judge the garnish, it does help present the meat.
