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:

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

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...

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:

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

BurntFinger_Jason 11-26-2008 03:49 PM

Did you get DQ'd for sculpting?

Dave98 12-02-2008 01:22 PM

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

My worst Turn-in boxes...
1st competition: 2005 New Holland SummerFest
Got DQ'd in Chick'n and Pork
  1. Chick: Bacon on the chick'n (Chick'n only) Dah!!!:oops:
  2. Pork: Put the blade bone in the turn in box to show it was cook'd all the way... Bone was concidered foreign object... They didn't see it until the juges were ready to eat the pork... Pork Blade Bone>>> Comes from pork a foreign object but any whooo...:-?

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:

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

I blame the burnt ribs on that Disney girlie towel

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

Live and learn...

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

Plowboy 12-24-2008 10:00 AM

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