They don't look that bad - I've seen much, much worse.

Once I saw a chicken entry that was six thumb-sized plugs of breast meat. No garnish. No sauce. Nothing else but the six plugs all rolling around in the turn-in box.

I am new to this site and I am entering my first competition in August. I have been barbecuing for about 2 years and your picture of ribs looks good to me. What am I not seeing? What should I know to do and not do for my first entry?

BigBrad 06-11-2010 09:32 PM

On those two boxes the appearance scores were 7's,8's,9's so the look is not that bad. The problem was in taste and tenderness, the brisket was undercooked and tough and the ribs were undercooked also.:icon_blush: Problem with temps on a new cooker:doh: The key to appearance is to suttle garnish and meat that jumps out and says eat me. Good Luck.

I really like how you highlighted the corners of the box with parsley...kind of reminds me of one of our 1st turn in boxes...except we poured ALL the juice from the foil into the pulled pork.....:bow:.....:roll:

This was from our first ever KCBS contest. This placed 4th. What a hot mess.

What appears to be brisket from the same contest.

LOL...curiosity got the best of me so I did some digging. These are from the first contest I took pics at, 3rd contest overall in 2005. I got a chuckle out of these, especially when I looked back and saw the brisket actually got a call. For those who are wondering, the brisket is the 3rd pic.:confused:

What a mess....:bow:

First time putting pork in a box. My "plan" didn't work out, and then I ran out of time and had to turn in something...

Richman2000 08-05-2010 01:14 PM

This is a great thread. Instead of looking at all the boxes to see how to do it, I get to see how not to.

Thanks.

Ok, folks. I have a Winner. Not in my category of course, but in WORST TURN IN EVAR!

Got roped into the comp at the last second, worked alone and was at the end of a 30 hour shift. It wast an accomplishment, just cooking all 4 categories and making turn in. Didn't even take pix of the butt.

Did anybody say anything to you about the brisket box being upside down?

I would eat those ribs.

jetfxr27 09-16-2010 10:32 PM

Actually the boxes had the spots for portions. If you look at the Ribs (cough, cough) they are resting on the poertion area, LOL.

So on the Brisket I just turned the box upside down. This was a work sponsored event for United Way and there were only about 20 teams. Rules were not very existent.

Brewmaster 09-26-2010 10:39 PM

Hermann 2010 Brat category.

these are my Reuben Brats.

I had a problem with the 1000 Island dressing. I was planning on a nice drizzle across them when the bottle shot out a big blob. No time to clean them so I smeared it around, laughed, and shut the lid.

Appearance Scores:
9,8,8,8,7,7 :crazy:

11th place out of 29 teams

lynnaepdx 09-26-2010 10:49 PM

Holy cow! That was really bad Jim.
Those brats did taste fantastic though. Glad the Judges were FORCED to at least try them....
Congrats on all the walks Nate and Ryan

Here are a couple more from me early in my cooking career. The brisket box was a huge rookie mistake can you tell why? The ribs were a sad try at diagonal box, they were way to big for that.

Jman, nice cutting of the brisket exactly along the grain. I bet that brisket had some pull.

Brewer 02-16-2011 04:33 PM

Oh chit... my ribs hurt from laughing so hard... This is a great thread.

Carnivorous Endeavors BBQ 02-16-2011 04:41 PM

This is an awesome thread. I told my fiancee about it and can hear her laughing in the other room!
After i finish my first KCBS comp later this year, i'm sure i'll be a contributor but i am learning a lot of what not to do. Thanks everyone!

badmood 03-30-2011 12:53 AM

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.

It was my first ever comp, and I used my butt rub on the ribs.

DUH!

My butt rub creates a dark bark!

Like I said, they tasted great (to me, apparently not the judges).

I have gotten much, much better at rib turn ins, but now my chicken appearances have gone to he!!.

Heck,
Some of these boxes don't look too bad. Learning a lot. The one with 5 ribs was tough. I just always say that I went to public schools when I do something like that:-D.

RibSnorter 10-24-2011 03:51 PM

Burnt Ends:
This has been a banner year for burnt ends(brisket candy) that I have noticed. Seems like boxes (generaly) look nicer with the dark carmelized chunks all lined up to form a row or 2. Taste can be a huge plus when scores are in.

K-Train 10-29-2011 02:03 PM

How about a post about your best turn in's?? I'd love to see those!:-P
