Hello, I have just started competition BBQ! But, I do not know what the pork should look like when it is turned. Does anyone have any pictures or suggestions?

I love seeing the contrast between the black and the reddish and the green.

Those chunks sure to look inviting - and the meat looks like it is well-sauced so it will be juicy and tasty.

If pork is pulled to fine, it tends to look crummy, but yours makes me want to take a bite of my screen.

Looks like small pork chunks, rather than shredded pork.

The rules say that you have to start with pork shoulder, picnic or butt, they do NOT say how you have to present it.

At one recent contest my table got 6 entries of sliced pork. OK, judge it as sliced pork.

Mike, that is some amazing looking pork. The bark is... Oh to find the words dude. I can only imagine opening that box...

Heres hoping there will be some that look like that next month at the Canadian Open.

In your opinion, do chunks of pulled pork generally do better in judging when compared to completely pulled or chopped?

They've done better for me.

I think the reason is because not too many people eat pulled pork around here so they may not be familiar with a more traditional look to it. When I competed in Memphis last month, I actually made a pile of shredded in the center of the box, with chunks around it.

My pork scores have improved quite a bit since I went from doing a shredded presentation to chunks.

Alien,

I seem to see about 1/4 are "chunked" in what I have judged.

This is only me but I think having shredded in the middle with chunks around the outside. That on a nice bed of lettuce. Also the chunks being bark pieces helps, IMHO, make for a more "robust" presentation.

Give it a little mositenng right to running the entry up to the turn in table I think helps also.

<edit>Mike just saw what you had said Very Happy. I think it comes down to tring to make it look a little different is what really catches the eye.</edit>

Take care,

Brian

I think that pulled pork is quite unattractive - but if you have some chunks w/bark around a mound of PP, I'm starting to drool.

I keep thinking, make it look like you arranged if for presentation, not just tossed into the box.

IMHO

"Arranged" yes, be carefull though of the "sculpted" word that would be a DQ.

Take care,

Brian

Brian,
What do you mean by sculpted? Do you mean a KCBS rule violation DQ?

I've had to turn in pulled in a foam tray with nothing but a sheet of foil under it. Darn right it's unattractive! I would love to be able to do what you did with your entry. Dang LSBS Evil or Very Mad
