Default parsley garnish ahead of time

Anyone ever put together their parsley garnish the night before while still at home? I am competing in my first four meat non-sanctioned event (Winter Burn, Des Plaines, IL) after doing a few amateur comps. Taking the time to get boxes done when worrying about two meats isn't so bad, but now I have to focus on four. Plus, my wife usually helps me out with boxes at contests, but she is staying home with our 4 month old. Just looking to make things a little easier on me since I compete solo. Thanks.

I've done it twice. I think Diva Q has directions for this on her site.

We always pre-make boxes and do the double flip when we are given our actual turn in boxes.

Double flip= In a box thats not from the contest,make a parley box as you normally would. After made being very careful flip into another box so that what was originally the bottom is now the top(shredded lettuce in our case) and what was the top(parsley) is now bottom. Then when given the actual turn in boxes again being very careful flip into turn in boxes so lettuce is at bottom and parsley at top. Fill the few spots with parsley that might need repaired and your done.

Takes practice and some people do it differently but this is how it works for us and my wife has been asked more than a few times to help teams learn to do this at comps.

We did the double flip and it worked well. Just needed to touch it up some after we had the turn in boxes.

We also pre do ours at home. As long as you keep them cold and moist, you should 't have a problem.

Thank you! This has been VERY helpful, and I can still try to convince my wife to help me make them... just the night before the comp! She will be "thrilled."

Every contest. I build them in my turn in box, place a damp paper towel on top, close the lid and put it in the cooler until a bit before turn in.
