Default Boxes from last competition

Well, my 2nd competition went pretty well. I scored better on 3 out of 4 meats and I feel like I'm still dialing it in. I'm sure that will continue for quite a while. I also received one score that shocked me. 6-3-4 on chicken for a total of 16! Ah well, I won the lowest score from any judge.

Let me know your thoughts if you would please. I'll post up scores shortly.

Chicken - I tried something new and lost my skin in the process. I'm thinking I need more sauce on here though. I also had one thigh that wasn't oriented like the others.


Ribs - My ribs were the best ones I think I've cooked. I think I overthought them though and introduced a couple of overpowering flavors. I'm also thinking I may need a little more sauce.


Pork - I turned in sliced, cubed mm, and pulled. I think my sauce was plenty. If anything I think I could have filled the box more. I think the chunk at the bottom should have been moved.


Brisket - Brisket was good I thought but I only dipped them in a jus without bbq sauce. I like it that way but I'm thinking I needed some bbq sauce on my slices. I also think my points were on the smoker a tad too long after I sauced them. That sauce smudge behind the points was removed before the box was closed. Q-tips are awesome.

I don't know how you got a 6 on that chicken.

That chicken is a solid 8.
Ribs are an 8, maybe a 9 in person.
Pork is an 8, that one piece in front detracts from the presentation.
Brisket is a 9 IMO. Love the look of it.

Someone here taught me that if you sauce the backside of the brisket, you get the flavor w/o the appearance of sauce.

These boxes look just fine to me too.
6 for appearance for the chicken is out of line too low.
Maybe some one had sand in their eyes out there in AZ.
You are on the right track, don't get discouraged.

very well put together boxes, IMO.
the chicken may have benefitted from being dunked in sauce.
the pork looks nicely cooked.
ribs look great.
brisket flat looks like it MIGHT be a little tight, but can't really tell.
burnt ends look VERY appetizing.
nice work.

I'm no judge, but it all looks good to me. Congrats on your improving scores, too.

Worry about taste and tenderness scores, before you worry about appearance. That is my suggestion for new teams.... Especially after seeing your appearance scores.

Ribs, pork and brisket all look awesome. I'd be happy to turn any of that in. Chicken still looks good, just not quite as good as the rest. Really nice job!

I'm right there with you and that was my main focus this last competition. It just didn't work out that way. That's the beauty of this, it's one big puzzle and all you can do is take what you know about food and cooking and apply it hoping that it makes a table of 6 happy. Thanks for the input.

My opinion, for what it's worth:
Chicken 7
Ribs 8
Pork 8
Brisket 9
Overall, a very nice job!

I agree, with the appearance scores and overall scores you listed, it looks like you got hammered in taste and tenderness.

I couldn't agree more with Scottie. Forget about your apperance because you got it pretty much dialed. Tighten up your taste and tenderness (if you haven't already) and you are right there with the best of them.
