Would everyone here think that two adults would be able to count 6 ribs in a turn in box?

I would have to think so, but guess who only turned in 5 ribs in their box.:blushing::oops::shrug:

I queered our score, but then we kinda sucked anyway.

Buttlover's Mike on the other hand, didn't get their ribs sliced all the way through, and when the judge picked one up, another one came with it causing them to be counted as only having turned in 5 ribs.

They got a 4th place call in brisket. Everyone should congratulate them. If I'm not mistaken, it was only their 2nd comp.

:cheer::cheer:Way to go Mike and Willy!:cheer::cheer: ( inside joke):roflmaoha0::roflmaoha0::roflmaoha0::roflmaoh a0:

They showed better than we did in pretty well everything.

We got an 8th place call in brisket. It's so weird. I thought our brisket sucked, and I am sure that our chicken was the best I have ever eaten. They liked the brisket but panned the chicken. I think I would really be confused if ther judges were KCBS CBJs.

Anyway, of the two teams from The Q Joint, the butt Lovers guys did best.

This is the season warm up. Let's see where we go from here.

Well Tim, it slowly fades. You never notice it happening. :shrug:
Then one day ........................... you turn in 5 ribs instead of 6.
Here's a tip: Put 12 ribs in the box. Make sure they are separate. We had 2 boxes yesterday that had 12 in them and they both scored well. Course the fact the ribs were good helped. But a nice FULL box works appearance-wise.
Is Stillwater a KCBS comp.?

Fun contest. I learned a very big lesson there - do not sleep on backseat bench of your pickup. I pinched my sciatic nerve and ended up in the Hospital last night. The doc said mostly women get Sciatica and it was kind of rare when it happens to men.
I told my wife it must have been the Bud Light Lime I drank all weekend.

We would've had trouble fitting even 1 more rib in the box. We turned in whole spares. They were great too, maybe even the best ribs I've ever had, but the judges didn't think they were that good.

Gotta take into account who's judging too.

Stillwater has a reputation for that type of thing. it was our practice cook, and it looks like we needed one!

You're welcome Mike.

Just remember, in Enid, we might not be so easy on you competition wise though.:msn-wink:

Hey Smoky, we talked about this one at Enid.

You gotta go with the rules and it requires 6. What happens is the last judge has to give you a 1 on taste and tenderness because he doesn't get one to eat.

Caution. This can also happen if you trim ribs and don't cut all the way through. I've seen it.

So it's not just about counting, it's about counting INDIVIDUAL pieces (happens a lot of brisket but I've seen it in ribs)

Never have I see whole spares. And the portion from the knuckle out is very different texture than the rib so it can affect you tenderness.

Just trim the ribs up if you don't turn in BB and you'll get more in.

We are convinced on the "no full spares" advice. Once again, we let our personal preferences get in the way of good sound advice. From 40th to 9th, what an we say?

My comment about the judges not liking them was referring to the scores that we did get,

Buttlover's had the stick together there, hence the title of this thread.
