Here is my very first contest turn-ins from Shannon, Illinois in '02.. Took a few years off and started competing again in '05. Besides chicken and some on the ribs, it looks like I was void of sauce... I remember how excited I was to have all those chunks of pork, with a bed of pulled pork underneath it... Looks like I did the Hollywood cut on my ribs too...

Scores were 29th overall. 27th for Chix, 15th for ribs, 17th for pork, 42nd for brisket and 20th for sausage.... I guess not bad for a contest like Shannon. I must of been paying attention to all the pictures I had seen... :mrgreen::mrgreen:

Countryhb 11-13-2008 04:16 PM

Scottie, that brisket must've REALLY sucked, because I WISH I could get my brisket to look like that!

Scottie 11-13-2008 04:20 PM

I don't think I understood that whole part of a pull test... I think I took that literally...

Countryhb 11-13-2008 04:21 PM

I gotta laugh at the sausage catagory. I'll I can think of is labrador turds...not that yours look bad, just funny.

We would like to before AFTER pics such as within the last year or so just to see how much it has improved :wink:

Scottie 11-13-2008 04:32 PM

I don't take pictures anymore... Not sure when I found all that spare time in the past to take pictures. Now as soon as I am done, I am closing the lid and getting it into my holding container for it to get turned in.

So as much as I would love to, I can't.

but I will say... If I had pictures, I would show them. Why not? No great secrets in box presentation. I just make it look like they want to eat it...

SaucyWench 11-15-2008 12:24 PM

While there are some pretty bad boxes here, none of you can compete with the real worst box ever (sorry, I was judging & table captaining, so no pics.)

This was in Durango, CO. I believe it was their second year. They had planned a backyard, but only one entry, so the organizer talked the guy into entering the sanctioned competition, no extra charge, the other teams will help you. Very small contest, maybe 15 competitors.

So, chicken comes in, I open a box, and there is one leaf of iceberg lettuce in the bottom, with 6 naked chunks of chicken on it, about the size of the chunks in Campbell's chicken noodle soup. When we stopped laughing, I think we all gave 5's or 6's for appearance, just out of sympathy. I can't remember how it tasted, but the visual will never go away.

This was our very first pork box. My wife thought it would be funny to make a face out of the pulled pork. :grin:

roastntoast 11-26-2008 02:36 PM

You know if you shook that up youd have a great BBQ salad

BurntFinger_Jason 11-26-2008 02:49 PM

Did you get DQ'd for sculpting?

Dave98 12-02-2008 12:22 PM

No DQ. They probably guessed from the entry we had no idea what the heck we were doing.:sad:

2008 Ducks Unlimited in Ankeny, IA

DAL ribs (technically 39th out of 39)! :eek::roll::eek:

When trying to determine which rack to submit, our "official" taster actually uttered the phrase, "You can't really taste the burnt on this rack". Keep in mind, we had 6 racks to choose from. :eusa_clap:eek:


http://i249.photobucket.com/albums/g...werbbq/227.jpg

notice the "burnt" ribs below. they all turned out like that. not our best day to say the least. :-D

I agree. Your scores would have been much higher had you gone the Superhero/Pokemon/Yu-Gi-oh! route.

Live and learn...

River City Smokehouse 12-24-2008 08:23 AM

This is not the worst box ever, but it holds close to it. What was I thinking?

RCS - Other than looking like you baked it in the oven, what's the matter with this box?

Stoke&Smoke 12-24-2008 09:47 AM

Well, not like we're old hands at comps now by any means, but I'd like to think we're better than this one, our first in Westmont, IL this past Memorial day.

Brisket looks dry, chicken's a mess, and the pork....well, it tasted better than it looked!

Actually, we were happy the brisket did 18th of 35! And that pork box got 3 9's for appearance! :shock: Looks pretty dry to me, but for some reason I thought it looked good then

We were honestly just happy to have made all the turn-in's on time with no DQ's! (Although there is no rib photo because we just got them turned in under the wire....no time for pics

Well, to me it looks just like you said....roast beef:eek:. It was dry and had no taste:shock:. I injected it with some "Big Cow Injection" and it came out so pale. Those burnt ends:rolleyes:
I should have trimmed the brisket to the box before I cooked it too.

River City Smokehouse 12-26-2008 04:33 AM

Here's on for ya!
It's not mine. I don't know whos' it is, but I know it was a 1st place brisket and also the GC at a contest. I don't believe it was sactioned though. YIKES!!:eek::eek:

Jim,

Bigmista 12-26-2008 12:15 PM

How do you win with meat cut with the grain? Were they in the contest by themselves?

I bet that didn't pass the old pull and tug test, it would have been more like chain and yank test!:lol:

I got a box judging in Hammond last year that was cut with the grain like that. It was obviously overcooked and they couldn't cut it the correct way without it falling apart, so we judged it on it's merit and it wasn't the worst piece of brisket I judged that day:lol:

oceanpigassassins 01-06-2009 12:20 AM

HawgHeaven 01-28-2009 05:09 PM

Well, this is a great thread! I can honestly say, that some of these entries looked a helluva lot better than my first turn in... and that was only last year at Dover.

So much meat to burn, and so much to learn...

OK. That had me laughing out loud!

This box looks like it's burnt. They were perfectly cooked, just ugly as sin. Tasted good too.

You are right Big'un. Maybe a sad commentary on the standards I have for what goes in my mouth......I would eat it all!

I heard someone turned in a corned beef brisket at Pike Place/Seattle 2 years ago.

bayoustylebbq 04-10-2009 12:46 PM

I know of one other box that should not have been turned in... We were at the Royal last year, when one of our food runners was taking the box to turn it, and someone tripped him! The box fell to the ground and with-out looking into the box to see the damage, he turned in the box! We got 4's and 3's for appearance... lol

Lesson to be learned; don't let the drunken guy run your food boxes!

Sean, that would exclude anyone on your team.

Very true Todd... Maybe that's been our problem!?! Too many drunk's on Sat morning. Y'all did tell me this "sport" is just for fun, right? I don't know what would happen if I told my guys that they have to not drink so much so we can compete... lol!
