I was all ready to get my panties in a bunch and disagree, but reading the rules it says "approved container provided by the organizer".
So yes they can give you any dang size they wish....


I personally think the rule should be changed to 9X9 only as far as I know all cooks plan on that size space for their entries.
I should have just bowed to your experience young lady.

Personally, I'd love to see KCBS get a contact with Hefty (or other manufacturer) and provide teams an approved list of product numbers so we could bring them to comps already completed if we wished. Then we would take them to the rep to get stickered prior to specified time.

However, I understand the logistical nightmares this could create, so I'd still be happy to get the boxes as soon as we check in.

We've generally seen 9"x9" in the western states, although some significant variation in depth has been noted depending on the boxes purchased.

All of the food service standard 9x9 takeout box fits the same external footprint, but be aware that the internal measurements vary depending on the brand. You will always have at least a 7 inch square to work with, sometimes more, but never more than 8.5 inches in my experience. (The cheaper the container, the smaller the interior volume)

That said this is only for styrofoam containers - I haven't seen any of the new "green" boxes that are beginning to become available.

We have noticed this as well, the internal dimensions can vary greatly depending on the slope of the side walls. Seems like there is no "standard" 9x9...

Once we get our boxes, I look at them and let Andy how they are. It really doesn't effect how he puts the meat into the box. It DOES effect the way I build my parsley box.

RD boxes are 9 3/4 X 9 X 3, Sams 9 1/2 X 9 1/2 X 3 1/2 at least around here.

Interior on RD is much smaller than Sams

Making the rule for KCBS read 9 X 9 would cause a major issue at many contests.

Yes, it was nice to meet you too! Wildomar was our first California outing of the year, and we did some catching up seeing people!

Here's a thought: Since you're in Banning, you might want to set your sights east as well -- it'd be an easy drive for you to come and play in our backyard!

For the boxes, instead of buying a bajillion-pack of one particular type, you could hit up a variety of takeout places and buy a couple of boxes from each. I always ask the boys to get boxes for me from the Mexican-food place on the corner -- as long as we buy a couple of full boxes, they're more than happy to sell or give us empty ones too.

I change how MUCH I put in the box. I change the density.
