    I don't know what the actual temp is, but it cooks the way I want it to, so I don't guess it really matters.

    That comment was after a 2 second glance, about what a judge gets before they dish out the food.

    Some advice i would give....

    Don't dump the sauce ON the meat, run the meat thru the sauce before boxing.

    The Parsley box looks decent, why even bother with lettuce?

    I don't see any bark??? Thats where most of the flavor is.

    Bigger chunks and again, fill that box!

    Another example, don't mind the sauce, it was something you guys would NEVER use!

    Other than the amount of sauce, I think it looks pretty good.
    I do like the bark in Bubba's I think if you had a little more bark to your presentation, it would give you a little higher presentation score. I'm in no way schooled on comps and judging, just my own preference.

    Can't taste it so how can I vote accurately?
    Lotta sauce and on top. After sitting a while and being jostled around you could almost get dinged for "pooled sauce". Mix it in with the meat.
    Like I said about the 5 rib box - put in a lot more than needed so it is FULL.
    The sliced/pulled combo is good. Some like sliced, some like pulled. The guy next to me last Saturday liked sliced and said he didn't care for pulled. But he tried both.

    Good looking box. Garnish is full and neat, adds to the overall appearance very nicely.

    What I see is not enough meat in the box.
    This is just a personal view but I don't like sliced chunks in a pork turn-in box, but this wouldn't take away any points.
    Pieces of pulled meat too small. Bigger pieces and more of it would really make it look better.
    Also using bigger pieces with bark for the judges to get a good taste of the meat and I would want them to taste the pop of the spices, plus it would look better with the dark and light colored contrast of the meat with bark and meat without bark. It that box most judges are going to grab a piece of the sliced meat ( without any bark ) because it's the easiest to pick out of the box and maybe not get that pop of the spices that is in the bark.
    From the picture it looks like the meat was run through the sauce and then after it was put in the box, more sauce was spooned over the top of the meat. This made it look like sauce was just poured on ( too much sauce ) and took away from the neatness of the box.

    Overall a good box. I gave the box an 8...........JMHO

    To me, the meat does appear to have been dredged in sauce, as well as having additional sauce spooned over the top of it prior to turn in. It needs to be more even in appearance. I'd recommend not added sauce at the end, but if you must, make sure it's evenly coated and not too heavy. As to quanity: I would have to agree that there should have been more meat in that box. Not only do you want the flavor to "pop", like Jim mentioned, you want there appetite to "pop" when the box is opened before them.

    I scored your presentation a 7.
