There was lively and passionate debate over this at the rules meeting in KC.
Lots of gnashing of teeth and waving of arms.

Will be interesting to see if anything comes of it and how and when any changes are implemented.

Not betting either way.

Some teams will do their best to conform to the rule as written, some teams will adhere to their own wildly creative interpretation of the rule, some teams will do whatever they want to saying that as long as there's no specific microprohibition of that exact thing it's okay, and some teams will openly declare that they'll do as they damn please because nobody's checking anyway.

Yeah, I'm freaking psychic.

Part / don't part, whatever. It's wrong to change the rule for 2013.

The motion that was passed is below.

I move that the definition of PORK be changed as follows:

Pork: Pork is defined as Boston Butt, Picnic and/or Whole Shoulder, being one piece, weighing a minimum of five (5) pounds (bone in or bone out).

This Rule change will go into effect for the 2014 BBQ season.

Randy withdrew his motion after the BoD passed mine.

This change replaces the current pork rule in its entirety???

"PORK: Pork is defined as Boston Butt, Picnic and/or Whole
Shoulder, weighing a minimum of five (5) pounds. Pork shall
be cooked whole (bone in or bone out) and shall not be
separated during the cooking process. At no time shall the
meat once separated be returned to a cooker."

If this is the case, then it creates a whole new and different category of cooking pieces of pork at different temperatures and times after inspection.

Thanks for letting us know Dave. I personally think this is a huge mistake but I do appreciate you being available here.

I don't understand why we have to show up with a 5 lb butt if we can cut it anyway we want after inspection. That's like saying you have to bring whole chickens but can turn in just thighs.

Yep, but we'll have a whole year to discuss it at least :)

If the BoD's intent is to still have butts cooked in one piece this rule change will likely change two or three times between now and next year. If not, then there is no point in bringing a 5 lb. minimum butt to a contest only to cut it into pieces.

Next rule change will be to forbid trimming of meats prior to inspection so pork is not singled out (again).

Thighs can be grilled.. a lot still do.

I'm going to start practicing grill marks on my money muscle slices.. :)

I'm not going to worry about people grilling their pork. It won't do much for their tenderness scores.
