Ms. Goofy and I will be judging our first barbeque contest of the year next weekend. We will be traveling to Placerville (Hangtown) California. This is a warm up event for the 2010 barbeque season. This event is sponsored by the CBBQ. Below is a description of the event.
"A Friendly Backyard cook-off to get your 2010 season started. Pit masters & certified BBQ judges will be on hand to help first time cooks prepare for competition turn ins and to help anyone who wants to learn about Low & Slow BBQ. It is a very informal competition where the main purpose is two fold (1) for experienced teams it is a chance to practice in between competitions and keep their skills well oiled: and (2) for novices, it is a chance to get the feeling of what a "real" competition would be like without the expense/entry fee or pressure of a "real" competition."

Here is a challenge for all you Barbeque Judges. There are several things wrong with this chicken turn in box. Can you name them?

Everybody is welcome to attend. We hope to see some old friends and make some new acquaintances.
Hope to see you there!

Besides being butt ugly, i only see 2 things.

1. Wrong garnish
2. Not enough pieces of chicken

Sauce is questionable, but I'd leave that call to the rep.

Nothing like burned skin with sauce trying to cover it up!

No corn bread? Only thighs? Too much greenery?

Everybody is right. Wrong garnish,not 6 pieces of chicken, covering mistakes with sauce, and no cornbread. It still tasted good.

After a 12 pack I'd say there is absolutely nuthin' wrong with it that more beer couldn't solve.

And hotsauce!

covering mistakes with sauce may down your score, but unless it pools in the box it won't give you a DQ

Hey White Trash, I think KCBS should have a cornbread rule. All turn ins must be accompanied by cornbread. Yeah, like I am not fat enough!
