Default Advice For A New Judge

After 6 or 8 years of having schedule problems, or no contests nearby when I was on days off, I have finally signed up for a judging class next week prior to the Wyoming State BBQ contest in Worland, WY. It sounds like a fun weekend.

Any advice or tips from some of you veterans is welcomed

Stay our of the BBQ Brethren Comp sections and never, ever voice your opinion publicly about what what YOU think is good BBQ.

Other than that go, have fun and do your best.

Remember that its not life or death. Watch where you fall in the "bell curve" when the scores are announced during class. If you find yourself always 2 points lower then the low average you might be too critical. :)

First off, don't be discouraged by the dick sitting next to you. He's at every class sometimes he's a cook from an almost star BBQ team, sometimes he knows someone who knows everything about BBQ, sometimes he is an expert at the 'ol gas grill.
Mostly listen to the intent of what KCBS is wanting from you. These are the rules, read them more than just the one time. Here is how we want you to do this, so that all teams are starting out on even playing feilds.
Your taste and preference does matter, but it shall be apllied in a fair and even manor.
I think the only way to understand everyone's thoughts and intentions is to stand in their shoes for a while.
In the end, you'll get from the class exactly what you put into the class.
Have fun, learn some, and grow each time you judge. I've come to the conclusion after 4 years, you'lll never know it all.

Go in with an open mind. The class that I went to one guy cook for everyone. Some of the food was good but most bad. Listen to instructor and read the book. I learned the most doing my first judging. Got there a little early and just went around asking the other judges questions. SaucyWench was my table captain, she was very helpful.

Star BBQ team. I like the sound of that.
Perry Brothers & Sons starring Dale Perry! Coming to a comp near you.

Judging was fun. It was worth the trip and a hell of a lot easier then cooking. The whole time while we were Judging, I was wishing that we were competing instead. But I got it bad..
