Default Opinions On This Pork Presentation STYLE Wanted

Ok first off, I know that the pork is oversauced and there are spots that need to be cleaned up. The cleanup was addressed before turn in.

What you see before you is two whole money muscles cut into 3 large chunks each.

I'd like to hear your thoughts of potential pros and cons here. Again, not asking for a score on this particular idea. Just some thoughts from judges or anyone else on the concept.

Thanks in advance.

In theory, if the pork is cooked well, then it should be fine.

In practice, I think it looks a little sloppy. Also, I believe there will be some judges that will not like that there is just the 6 slices, some will feel they did not get the right meat.

Just my 2cents. Cut too thick, tighten up your green, clean up the box. Really good looking color though.

This particular presentation looks heavy in that the judge will have to pick up a large chunk of meat and bite a piece off, cave man style as I don't believe it will all go in at once. He'll also have a large amount of sauce to clean off his hands, face, lips and facial hair ( if he has any).

Sliced, pulled and chunks tend to be the better choice. It gives the judge a choice, even though he will take all three. In theory, he will taste the one that is his preference and cooler the rest. That is why most will insure that there is enough of all three for every judge to get a sample. Good looking money muscle by the way, wish I could find that size on my butts.

Opionions are like AHs, everyone has one and this is just mine.

It is not excellent for me.

Like the color and shine but not the size.

And never...ever...put just 6 pieces in a box (except for those dang thighs where you can't get 7 to look just right)

way to thick, not arranged well, needs to be sliced more evenly and arranged tighter.

6, maybe 7 in appearance.

so are you guys saying $M only in a box is not a good idea? Do you think Judges would score down if there was no pulled or chunks? i think the box looks good, very full, maybe tighten the muscle back up so the green isnt peeking through.

ive put 2 sliced $M in a box, sliced into medallions, which yielded 10 nice slices, cut clean, even and assembled nicely, and did very well. It wasnt by choice..the rest of the butt really sucked.

ive seen boxes with ONLY pulled $M also.. scored as a pile of pulled pork..

I think for now that it's just "too out of the norm" for most judges to score well in appearance but you might hit a contest table that likes the out of the norm/artistic aspects of it. I would say you need to slice smaller also as there's no rule against putting more than 6 slices. IMO & even though it's not part of the score, parsely might be a better green to go with than the lettuce you have to frame it.

No.

I always score "what is presented". Last year I can think of a couple times where just mm was in the box. Both times it scored low on appearance because it was just one mm that didn't fill the box and although it was sliced it looked like a turd just sitting there (sorry...but that what we called it after scoring) Now for taste it was EXCELLENT.

Well it finished 44th out of 50 but appearance scores were not to blame this time. Four 9's, one 8, and one 7. Taste scores killed me on this one, and I know the culprit.

I score whats in the box ...not what could have been in the box. If the pieces tastes good and are moist thats all that should matter but.... from an appearance standpoint the box just doesnt look as good to me with 6 large pieces laying in it vs some nice fanned out slices
