Damn Judges!

Back from New Paltz and let me tell you, them damn judges don't know squat.

One judge had the audacity to boast about how there was nothing spectacular and that most of the food was just "OK." The nerve of that rat bastard! I thought he was my friend and to hear that the food sucked. Man, oh man, that was just too much.

Doesn't he know how much time effort and money went into preparing that food that to his "refined and educated" palette was just "OK"? Shouldn't I be rewarded with better scores simply because I cooked? Damn.

Then, another judge was pontificating on how the food this year wasn't as good as last years! WTF?

Damn judges! I may never judge again!

I'm sorry that I missed you up there. Where were you located? I stopped by Sunday to say hi to people but I guess it just didn't work out.

Did you enjoy yourself at the event? Was it run well?

Come out to Will's on the 30th.

Hi there!

Was very nice meeting you in person at the Ribfest! Sad i didn't get to try any of your turducken though :(

Those judges were so way off! was the whole thing fixed? or are they just dense? I really don't think many of them had much experience or knew what they were doing. The rankings were way off.

Best,
jamey poole

Ouch !!!

I judged the Championships here last Saturday, 60 teams and 66 judges. Out of the 6 pieces from each round, there was usually about 1 to 2 that stood well on their own. And there was one poor team that had mishandled their fire and it was all fuelly. I tasted about 6 pounds of meat, but don't know if I had a chance to taste the winners er not.

I had a guy next to me that wouldn't stop going on about how awesome he is and how well he does everything and all the stuff he cooks all the time. He said with relish about how he likes all his meat far past well done. WTF? So, when the tritip and brisket showed up, the dry & pasty got high marks. My 2nd choice on the tritip was pretty darned rare, but it was so good! He wouldn't touch it.

Tee hee, one poor soul did beef ribs instead of pork and was disqualified. The table said the ribs were really good though ...
