Default KCBS Rules interpretation needed

Does anybody here trim their product before heading out to a competition? I was thinking i could trim everything Thursday and re-vacuum seal it to save some time Friday night. As long as i don't add marinade or seasoning, is this legal? Here is the relevant section of the rules.


7) All competition meats shall be inspected by the Official
Meat Inspector during the times established by the contest
organizer but not prior to the day before judging. Once the
competition meat has been inspected, it shall not leave the
contest site. Cooking shall not begin until the competition
meat has been inspected by the Official Meat Inspector. All

competition meat shall start out raw. No pre-
seasoned meat

is allowed other than manufacturer enhanced or injected
products, as shown on label EXCLUDING but not limited to:
teriyaki, lemon pepper or butter injected.


When the contest

organizer supplies the meat, the contestant is not required to
enter only that meat. Competition meat not meeting these
qualifications shall be disqualified; given a one (1) in all criteria

by all six judges.

Yep. We do it for every comp. there is nothing in the rules that prohibits this.

BTW, could you possibly find a smaller font?

I meant to say thanks smaller, but that is the smallest font allowed.

I guess that's why I don't do competitions: I can't read the rule book.

I learned the hard way. I trimmed all of my meats for my first comp at the comp location. When I was getting inspected, the Rep asked me why I didn't rim at home. I told him I didn't think that was allowed. The look on his face told me that I was wrong and I've been trimming at home ever since. That's where I discovered that an 18lb brisket can fit into a 2.5 gallon zip loc bag

We always plan on trimming before we leave, but whiskey seems to have different plans most of the time. Maybe next time.

Yeah that is what we do too. Gotta fold it a little and sometimes a bigger brisket can be tight. The need to make 3 gallon bags to make it a little easier

Chicken trimming at home is key, the other stuff is pretty easy!

Brilliant! I've even seen those but it never registered in my head to use them . Maybe I'll just get the XXL and throw all my meats into 1 bag .
