Experienced comp taste testers wanted...
Who would be willing to help a newbie out and come do a taste test/critique my que? Prefferably someone who is acomplished and has one a few Grand Champions from some of the comps here in Utah.
I'm a newbie w/the intention of working on my que through the winter/taking some classes when available, then competing in as many "backyard class" comps next year. This wouldn't be right away but I'd like to "get-together" sometime between after Thanksgiving but before Christmas. I live in Payson... I'd be willing to help out w/gas money or if needed meet someone someplace if needed... thanks!
T... if you're out there I'd be interested in talking to you sir! I know you are accomplished as well and have lots of experience... thanks!

RE: Experienced comp taste testers wanted...
The best judges are not necessarily the best cooks and the best cooks are not necessarily the best judges. We encourage cooks to become KCBS certified judges, if for no other reason, than to see what the judges have been taught to score on. We also encourage judges to spend time interning on a team to see what they have to go through to create a good turn in box. Some judges are just way to hard in judging and penalize just on a personal taste preference. Too many see the opportunity as a free lunch, bringing up or down the score, penalizing or rewarding teams that deserve honesty.
I guess what I'm saying is winning GC twice in Utah really says your did well and got the judges you needed, however, run that same contest again with the same food, same judges and the odds slim teams would finish in the same order. That's why coaches don't play and players don't coach. Good luck with your develloping skills. BBQ, it's not just for breakfast anymore.

rock-wit'chu bbq I'd take Bud up on his offer, he judges when he can, and I'd certainly trust his taste buds to offer a realistic opinion of your food... besides that, he's a nice guy to get to know and lives closer than anyone else I could name off the top of my head! Wink

Bud... if the food's no good it's not my fault, I just did what I could to get you the gig! Tongue

RE: Experienced comp taste testers wanted...
I think I understand what it takes to turn in a box.. I have not done it since my first contest a solo effort at the FW&Ice where I met my two goals!
Turn in all 4 meats on time, And not score last! Thanks Carla--- thank goodness her chicken caught on fire... And I thought I smoked a mean chicken!!
I have judged about 8 or 9 comps. I did live in taxes for almost 10 years and I think I make a good judge?

Life is like the smell of smoking pork. stay in the downdraft and follow the sweet smell., enjoy each bite.

I'm still living in taxes, but I think you meant Texas, Wink getting the vowels in the right order makes quiet, (intentional spelling error), a difference!

I have a regional set of taste buds born in Denver and then Texas. I also asked for a smoker at 14 to smoke trout.. So I like smoked meat to taste like smoke...
