ACM Turn In Boxes
Wanted to throw this out to the gang. I know several of you are CBJ judges, and I wanted a brutally honest critque of our turn-in boxes.
We want to get better, so here it goes. BBQ is not for the thin skinned.

RE: ACM Turn In Boxes
Will,
Nice boxes. Here's my input:

The chicken looks really good, I'd score a 9 on appearance. The one thigh in the middle might make it look a little cluttered to some judges so you might want to keep it to just the six pieces. The color, trimming, and sauce is just right for the pieces.

Ribs I'd score an 8 - ribs are cut evenly, placement is good in box, but too much sauce on the meat for me. Hides the true color and will probably overpower the meat on a taste test.

Pork is a solid 9 - Excellent presentation, great color, money muscle slicing is perfect, pulled pieces look juicy and tender, chunks look tasty, nice box.

Brisket I'd score an 8 - Slices are displayed well, look juicy, and have good color, some pieces are different sizes and cut just a bit uneven (some thicker than the others), the burnt ends look great but are hidden by the garnish a little so look a little small. Overall, a nice box.

Okay, hope that helps. These boxes compete well in presentation with any I've seen. Nice work.

You are welcome. We are all here to make each other better. We are a new team too, so if you have any question or need any help, just ask. You should do the SAM at the end of the month. It's cheap 200 bucks and close. Theres not many chances to compete here in Utah, so take advantage. You gotta get your feet wet sometime.

When and where? What dates?
Question:
What is the Money Muscle? What part of the Brisket would I use for the burt ends?

RE: ACM Turn In Boxes
My take:
Chicken:
It's nice of you to leave one for someone not scoring but it throws the lay out of your box off if the one in the middle is different shaped and is skewed off to the left. The glaze is a bit on the heavy side and not cooked in a bit, I'm afraid if I picked one up it might slip.

Ribs: Way to much sauce and it looks dipped in sauce. I like ribs all from the same rack laid out as they were cut on a tilt so you can see the meat and smoke ring, even if there is a size difference. You're telling the judge "I had to cook three racks to get one good one". It you cut along the bone? Looks like lop sided bones.

Pork: A judge is supposed to take a little of everything, you are asking a lot to get 3 items in that little square. Look at the rough cuts from your knife. Did you you electric? There is even a spur or two sticking out. The stack at the bottom looks like it was dropped in at no particular order. Meat should always be placed in with carful thought.
in
Brisket:
Look at the slice third and fourth in from the left. The edges look three times wider that the others. Again the 7th piece throws off the box and crowds it with the extra burnt ends. Burnt ends are great but make sure you have room. Really long pieces of meat, you even ran out of room in the top corner, the meat is I believe touching the box.

Other that that, when's dinner?

Will,
First of all the pastrami sandwich I had yesterday was incredible, one of the best I've had in a long time. I'm also a certified judge. I'm only going to comment on the brisket. I've been taught that you should NOT include the burnt ends. Why? If the brisket is great, however if the burnt ends are off a bit then it throw the high scores out for the rest of the box. It's a risk you take when you include them.

I'm no judge...but damn...your meat presentation looks fantastic. Great job! I produced some of the best ribs I've made on the new Yoder. I'm more than happy with how everything turned out. I'm glad you made it back safe...good luck at SAM'S.
