Cardboard boxes?
12 August 2013 | by (Valencia, Spain) – See all my reviews

The only good thing about this show is the half where the focus is on the cooking, and the cooks. The BBQ foods here look awesome, and watching the cooks discuss what they are doing is great, as it gives the viewers some good ideas. The food looks great, and the cooks are usually very nice and humble folks.

Unfortunately, the judging part of the show is just silly and ridiculous. The BBQ meats are placed in a Styrofoam container on top of a bed of romaine lettuce. Who eats BBQ on cold romaine lettuce? I mean, put it on a bed of mashed potatoes, or just on a standard plate. The judges remark on "the presentation" as if there is anything presentable about a bunch of ribs in a Styrofoam box. That is just a total joke.

Then they pull a tiny piece of each meat out of the Styrofoam boxes, probably at least an hour after it has been cooked, and put it on top of a cardboard sheet that looks like a tic-tac-toe board. They "blind taste" the food, and barely take a bite, and then they try to talk about the meat as if it was fine wine. What a total joke.

If these judges were not so full of themselves, they would taste the food right at the bell, by going to the three pit-masters and tasting their meats right at their stands, when it was still hot. The food should also be placed on plates. This is great BBQ, and it is sad to see it placed in Styrofoam and on top of plain lettuce.
