Your choice, just like a KCBS contest. If you plan on using garnish at contests I'd do at least one box with garnish. That way the judges can give you feedback on it. If you're planning on using garnish bring curly parsley and lettuce. There will be plenty of people there to give a garnish lesson either Friday night or Saturday morning if anyone is interested.

Sounds good, I've been thinking about trying a different garnish method

I'd like to propose a change to the turnin order. The turnin times are fine, it's just the order of turnins has me confused. If this is a warmup for comps then I think the turnin order of meats should reflect that of KCBS. Currently, the order seems a bit PNWBA'ish with the turnin order of pork, brisket, chicken, ribs.

I propose we change the turnin order to reflect the order we'll actually be turning in at a contest in CA (most of the time anyway) which is the standard KCBS turnin in order of chicken, ribs, pork, brisket.

So I propose the meat turnin order look like this:
11AM - 11:50AM: chicken
12PM - 12:50PM: ribs
1PM - 1:50PM: pork
2PM - 2:50PM: brisket

This would help the new teams understand the order/sequence that meat will requested at a real contest. 95% of the time anyway. We don't seem to have any PNWBA contests in NorCal that I know of. It just makes more sense to me to reflect KCBS turnin order more than PNWBA at a competition warmup event.

In theory that maybe true.

The reason we went with this timeline has to do with teams who only want to cook the short meats who can arrive early in the AM and still cook this event (making this a single day event for them). Going the "normal" route they are forced plan for an overnight stay.

Currently about half the field is only doing the short cooks, not really fair to them to change it after they've signed up for it this way.

I agree with Scott, the majority is cooking all four and should be standard turn ins.
The short cooks are still reasonable at those times and I don't think anyone would be forced to stay overnight to cook ribs an hour or so earlier.
We have done many contests with rib turn ins at noon and have shown up that day...no biggie.
I vote to for standard turn ins but if it don't change, we'll cook to what is given.

Im seeing both sides. Standard turn in times make sense. But it was setup with rookie teams and short cooking teams in mind and having It be a bit easier for them. Changing times and then having them possibly changing their plans at this point isn't fair. Now if every team was already planning on being there overnight anyway, then that'd be different. Personally I was thinking the times were gonna be a bit difficult to run... but I knew that when I signed up. So at this point I'm with Ben.

I see your point Ben and we'll cook it the way it's set if that's how it works best for the majority. And agree that it's probably too late as you said some have signed up due to the cooking turnin order and times.

Well folks, one week away and the weather looks like it is going to cooperate, so it should be a great time. I was hoping that we might be able to get a few more judges, so any of you judges out there that want to come on out, please sign up on the Wiki and come on out.

Please let us know what you will be bringing (i.e., trailer (size), canopies, etc.) so we can try and position everyone by Thursday. This will help alot with the organization. Any special requests with trailer sizes, please let us know. We want to make this as smooth as possible.

Thanks

I'll be bringing our 10' equipment trailer. Our canopy is 10x10. We're an outdoorsy kind of family, so we'll be pitching a tent for sleeping. See everyone this Friday.
