    Hello Smokers;

    I'm entering my first rib contest in two weeks with my son and I have no idea how to make my plate for the presentation.

    Would anyone be able to help me?

    ie, what to put on the plaste so it looks great!

    I can't help you, but there are some guys on here who can.

    I moved this to the General Discussion section.

    I think you will get more replies there.

    I've never done one myself so take this with a grain of salt, however what I have always seen is:

    Ribs nicely sliced and laid on a bunch of curly parsley (stems tucked in/under) to make a nice little bed for the ribs to lay on.

    That's about all the advice I can offer. Good luck, and hopefully someone else can chime in with better advice than mine!

    Thanks Betaboy......

    I will be looking into other avenue also!
  6. Bed of green kale is what I typically see.  Imparts no flavor (thus why I hate eating the stuff), it won't crush under the weight of the meat, and makes for a nice presentation.
  7. Do you actually get to use a plate or are they issuing you the competition boxes?

    Lots of good ideas here. What you can use will mostly depend on who is running the competition. There should be a 'cooks meeting' to give the competitors all the rules and answer any questions. I know this doesn't help you come prepared or practice though. Good luck and let us know how it turns out! Mike
  13. Welcome, goose. I like kale better since it doesn't wilt like parsley or leaf lettuce under the heat or the weight.

    thanks SO MS Smoker;

    I'm going in with an open mind and see what happens on my first try.  

    I will try and post my picture of my plate or container at the rib contest.

    Thanks again
