Hello to everyone out there...

I am new here and plan on entering my first KCBS competition in April...Anyway after looking at every post in this thread I was hoping that maybe some of you good folks could tell us newbies exactly what made each box bad. I did see a couple that it was obvious but some looked good to me. Knowing why they were bad would make this thread much more beneficial (IMO).

Ok this was my worst box ever. It was in 2008 at a competition that was oversaw by KCBS. Would you believe it got first and $1000. I am shocked as I now know how to do the boxes and this is terrible.[email protected]/4313233832/
Then we went to SOTW Little Rock and sucked hard core there as well:[email protected]/4313259672/[email protected]/4312518521/[email protected]/4312512227/[email protected]/4313242984/
I was just happy to salvage enough beef to put in the box, It was sooo stewed.

Worst box ever would be turning in chicken for ribs...

You guys are amatures!!! As a judge I have seen way worse!! How about ribs that were torn apart instead of cut and looked like they were grilled they were so overdone and blackened. These ribs were at a non sanctioned event and as such I was able to walk around and talk to the competitors and I remember seeing a team put ribs on with an hour to turn-in. Must have been their ribs!!! Brisket that I could not pull apart, I remember trying not to laugh as the rest of the judges did the pull test and could not pull their slices apart either. Chicken turned in upside down because the skin was so black or pork turned in sauced so much on top you couldn't see the pork.

Would it be a benefit to say, take a KCBS judging class so as a competitor, we know what not to do? Or is that not allowed

It's allowed, and highly recommended if you are getting started. Many competitors are also certified judges. I mainly cook, but try to judge 1-2 events a year.

My 2 turn in Boxes for the Eagle Fun Event.

The parsley was for the chicken and the lettuce was for the butts.

What NOT to do with Chicken...
So... we THOUGHT it would be cool to french some wings, smoke them and then dip them in a Raspberry, Chipotle Sauce. Hmmmm... maybe NOT:

I can say my boxes use to look like this, not anymore. I took the advise of some pro's to go judge some comp's. I judge my first this weekend. I tell you when they open those boxes you can tell the rookies from the pro's. Take the time to do this it is worth the time to see what you are up against.

Here is my first ever brisket turn in box in a KCBS contest. It was in Shannon Il. I scored 133.5 on this turn in. I thought this box looked better then the chicken but who knows

tennispro 05-16-2010 07:34 PM

Here I turned this one in at shannon as well. I pulled a Tuffy and forgot to sauce the pork. This one got me 149.4, the joys of a first contest
