Congrats to FEEDING FRIENDZ (GC) and INSANE SWINE BBQ (RGC).
We had a great time in Medford. It was fun talking with some old friends and meeting new ones.

Special thanks to GRIM REAPER SMOKERS for the great Prime Rib dinner!
My son asked, if we could always be set up next to you for all future contests Thanks again.

Now if somebody can can show us how to cook Chicken and Brisket we will be OK

Congrats to everyone that got calls, and those advancing to the regional.

This was crazy scoring. According to Troy Black, it was the second lowest scoring contest in Sam's Club history. We got a 4th place rib call with a 154? Wow. GC of this event was a 642? I know I have talked about low scoring contests in the northeast "We have 4's and we aren't afraid to use them" but this is nuts even for the northeast.

Our 4th place ribs included a "6 5 5" score. Sure, that was the low score that got dropped, but you aren't thinking "top 5!" when you get a 6 5 5 on anything.

Yeah, I judged this, and as a cook first, I saw some crazy scoring.
I don't look at what other judges score. But I happened to see a couple.
I saw an okay box, a 7 or 8. The judge next to me scored it a 5. The next box was terrible. (Just a pile of pulled pork that looked grey) The same judge scored that a 6, higher than the first box.

I wouldn't try to read too much into the scores this weekend. There were some crazy ones. Taste/Tenderness can vary from piece to piece, but everyone sees, or at least should see, the exact same thing for appearance. I had one box that ranged from 5 to 9 in appearance with pretty much every score in between! I'm not saying that either one is right, but I know that they can't both be! That's just too much of a spread.

Definitely some crazy scoring. We got Reserve with a bunch of 6s.

Congrats to everyone who got calls and to the other five teams that are advancing. The Northeast will be well represented.

Congratulations to Feeding Friendz & Insane Swine. The Basic BBQ Team had a great time before, during and after the contest. We continue to get closer to putting all four into the top ten and hope we can achieve that goal in Chesapeake.

Yes the scoring reads as very odd. We had some of our worst scores of the season (and some of our best entries) but at least it looks like we were all judged on the same scale, even if that scale wasn't the norm. I have to wonder if the judges view the event as a big one and ramped up their expectations thus being very stingy with scores.

On another note, one team had the following pork box DQ'd for sculpting. As someone who works hard to have symmetry in my presentations this DQ is a bit scary. To be clear this is not my turn in but I have permission to show the pic of the box from the team that was DQ'd.

Our first place ribs recieved a 6,7,5 from one judge, and we were on the same table as you .....

Congrats to all who are moving on. We were lucky enough to get 6th place. My dad is so psyched about us going on to Virginia.
And big congrats to the Basic BBQ Team who on the Ferry ride over were told of the birth of a great grand daughter. That and a 4th place finish is pretty cool.

why was it DQ'd? its no different from using the old ice cream scoop method that I instructor at the judging class I took mentioned.

There is nothing there for me that would DQ that entry. Unless their team name is "Square Pork BBQ"

That pork came to my table. (I was not the one who called it out.)
I thought the appearance was a 5 or 6 and scored it before another judge called the table captain on it. Who called the rep over.
Mike Lake looked at it for about 10 seconds and declared it molded.
Technically, maybe yes, but I would have let it be judged on it's own.

"All judges will give a one (1) in all criteria for sculptured meat..."

Are we sure this was a DQ? I'm not seeing a DQ score for any team on the pork results sheet.
