Default Chicken turn-in box

My teammate, BBQJunkie, has been working on his presentation for chicken. Here is the latest pic:

Can we get opinions from all of you judges and competitors, please?

Is that chicken?????? Hmmm...maybe need to reconsider this judging class. Just kidding. Looks very apealing. Although every one of these I've seen, all the meat's look very similar in color. Hope there's a bit of variety out there. Scott

I actually think it looks quite appealing.

I think the chicken looks good but the box looks sloppy. With some attention to detail you would probably get a few more points. Thats the easy part, the hard part is cooking great looking chicken and it seems you have that part down.

hey mista, how many thighs you trying to get in that box anyway. i would look at the shape of the box and try to divide it up evenly, fitting one piece of chicken into each portion of the box, for example two rows of three for a total six. also i would watch the char around the edges, and perhaps a slightly thicker coat of sauce or glaze to make them a bit glossier. then i would pleat the lettuce to make it perfectly semetrical all the way around with only curly parts and no flat spots showing. thats about it but take my suggestions for what they are worth. i have never been in a competition before.

The chicken looks great, but I agree with Rich - it looks a bit sloppy. A comment I've overheard from judges when meat overlaps or is piled on top of each other is that the cook is looking to hide some flaw. I'd also try and keep the lettuce in the box.

And if I'm not mistaken - you're disqualified for using red tipped leaf lettuce. Or was that the trick question from the beginning?

I didn't realize judging could be so persnickety.

good comments, the lettuce needs to be even all around the box, it really is attention to detail on the turn in. You would get a 7 from me, it's better looking than expected, but has a ways to go to get a 9. Even though rookiedad says he's never been in a comp, he has sound advice. I think everyone in competition uses green leaf lettuce, wash it good, early on and then wrap it in a paper towel and keep it cool and moist.
Wish I was going to the Autry, but can't make it this year. Good luck to you.

We're having our test run this weekend. Gonna pull my brisket a little earlier than usual so I can get some good slices before it crumbles.

Rob, you aren't a fan of ribs on their sides? I have turned 'em in both ways and scored about the same. I'm not as sure as I was that I like 'em that way either.
