I am super critical and so usually when someone asks me I am sort of pessimistic. other cooks I know always love everything that comes off their cooker

Welp, we got that one over with, lol

There's a certain top 10 ranked team we cook against often. If he says any of his meat turned out poorly, you can expect him to finish top 5 with it. Every time.

Happens to me all the time.

The meat I feel confident about finishes low.
The meat I feel that I tanked get's a walk.

Go figure.

At our first contest the promoter came up after turn-ins and asked how I thought we did. I told him I didn't know about pork or chicken, and we had completely screwed up brisket, but we still felt good about our ribs... we won brisket that day.

Our chicken cook last weekend in Nelsonville was a complete disaster....finished 4th. I am my own worst critic. Best chicken I've ever cooked with perfect bite through skin scored abysmally in Kettering a few years ago....even got a comment card trashing the tenderness of the skin. I give up on guessing. I thought we have a good cook in Madison IN this year and it was our worst contest.

I think that after I've done all I can with the meat, baby sat the cooker, presented the meat, I have no judgment left to analyze what I've done. My pat answer is that "I did the best I could with what came out of the cooker."

Now when it's bad, I can tell that. My brisket at the Royal got one judge that gave an honest score, 544. I worry about the rest of the judges that scored it higher. It really was that bad...

Yeah, that's why I do it.

When I die, my goal is to have a visible smoke ring when the coroner cuts me open for the autopsy.
