    Gave it a 6 (KCBS CBJ #23438 & member Smokin Scotsmen BBQ Team).

    Reasons: thigh size varied greatly, sauce looked "glopped" on, the garnish was just so-so, and there are several places where the sauce dripped on the garnish leaves.

    Going just by the pic, it didnt make me want to "dive in" and eat the whole box. Didnt see anything to down grade it, but I didnt see anything that made it stand out either.

    What goes up, must come down.....Preferably to a soft landing!

    I survived Indiana......... If you can call it that....

    Dropped by at your request. Hope you enjoyed the chicken advice.

    You wanted my thoughts:


    And in terms of winning, except for the huge contest, one appearance point won't matter as much as Taste/Tenderness. You get all 9's in T/T you're walking, and probably a first. Looking at my scoring spreadsheet, I have 2 firsts (not Stillwater) where I have 2 7's in appearance (they were idiots)...

    Keep on cooking and you'll be doing fine.
    They always are when they score you down, huh?

    I think that I am very guilty of looking too much at the meat, and I say that because that is what it is to me. Here again, I think though that the meat's score is more important that appearance. I think it also goes back to the same old thing of " who are you cooking for?"

    I mean if the judges aren't cooks, then they prolly won't look for the things that you do, or for that matter, most of the folks that have posted here.

    If, when it's all said and done, if it becomes a matter of presenting visual art, we will prolly never be champs, because to us, it's about the meat, and I don;t think any of us are skilled in visual arts.

    Thanx again all for the input. We will try to do better in the future and represent you well.
