This weekend I had the pleasure of participating in Dr. BBQ's competition class. During the class he said one thing that really stuck in my mind: "Perception is reality". You are totally justified in submitting chopped brisket but because most submit slices the judges in their own mind may wonder why you chose to submit chopped brisket. They may think you submitted chopped because something went wrong with your cook. Remember the judges are human beings and thier perception of what you turned in becomes your reality in how they score you.
