I want an invite to the AR and the Jack and MiM!! I might go and get handed my head on a platter but at least I'll have made a run at it!
To me, you've won the battle to get the invite.........I think there was like 80+ teams in the AR invitational, but there can only be one grand champion. If you get the invite, enjoy the competition, you've already proven yourself somewhere along the line, no need to worry about having your head handed to you on a platter.

Like I've said before, I'll eat your cookin' any old time.

Phil;


I can't go to these things to visit, or checkout, or maybe taste somebody elses food! And, I can't afford to travel with a prime rib under my arm

For me, it's compete or don't go!

Another forum member PMd me about my "smack" of Phil:

Obviously some think I was slamming Phil - I didn't mean to. I respect him immensely and am so appreciative of the times I've visited in his home and the opportunity he have me to help at Asbury Park.

I apologize if I gave the impression that I'm slamming Phil. I just can't go and hang at these events - I wish I could. So, I repeat, I'll go when I can compete - and I wish I could afford prime rib in the suitcase! :D

No need to apologize.

We live in the real world. Phil lives in Philville.

No normal sane person walks around in a blue fuzzy hat with horns, and a prime rib under his arm.

But it was a good slam

Relax DF.... i didnt see no slam....

I live in Philville though?? Thats a slam, but i'll ignore that one.

and I'm proud to have a prime rib under my arm.. some people bring six packs.. or bottles of wine... I bring Prime Rib! Sh*t walked into midwest bash with a prime rib, a tray of shrimp and a crave case of white castles... Didn't hear anyone complaining there. :) except those who ate the white castles a few hours later.

I assure you this scenario is real.
DOC,
I had some great "t'ween meat" conversations and I can see that happening, for sure. I was lucky and did not have to listen to BS, just good info on "soaking wood properly" by some of the the judges.

Rob,
This was our goal and we think we profited greatly!
Thanks all,
TIM

Yes Sir--saw it for myself.
Fun, Fun, Fun--and a great learning experience!
I had anouther newby Judge "hanging on my every word" just because I had the KEWL Brethren hat on and had actually competed--once
I had to be real careful what I said.
"Blind leading the blind" sometimes
Real "old timers" could definately lead "one astray", or "down the right path" as the case may be!

Robert
Rob,
That is exactly why DF and I spent the $ and time to go to training and then actually judge a meet!
That is also why I started this thread!
I believe in "collective wisdom", training, and then experience to pull it all together.
We have seen the some of the extremes of taste, opinion, and attitude.
We have a better understanding of the way meat should be prepared for turn-in.
We have learned (or decided) that we can not worry about the judges who are outside of the guidlines or who let personal preferences drive their scores.
We can simply cook within the rules to the best of our ability and see what happens.

We have a better plan now and will see how it goes!

Thanks to all for the great input and contributions to the "collective wisdom"!
TIM
