7) All competition meats shall be inspected by the Official Meat Inspector during the times established by the contest organizer but not prior to the day before judging. Once the competition meat has been inspected, it shall not leave the contest site. Cooking shall not begin until the competition meat has been inspected by the Official Meat Inspector. All competition meat shall start out raw. No pre-seasoned meat is allowed other than manufacturer enhanced or injected products, as shown on label EXCLUDING but not limited to: teriyaki, lemon pepper or butter injected. When the contest organizer supplies the meat, the contestant is not required to enter only that meat, the single exception being: when an organizer provides all four (4) meats in a fair and equitable manner. Competition meat not meeting these qualifications shall be disqualified, not allowed to be turned in, and not judged, and receives no score.
15) The container shall not be marked in any way so as to make the container unique or identifiable. Aluminum foil, toothpicks, skewers, foreign material, and/or stuffing is prohibited in the container. Pieces of aluminum foil noticed during appearance judging will be an immediate disqualification regardless of size. Pieces of foil found hidden or embedded in a sample by a judge once a sample is put on their plate, must be more than 1/8 inch in size to be a disqualification. Marked entries or containers with the above listed material will receive a one (1) in all criteria from all Judges and disqualified.
