you said "let the Jack committee respond"
There is no Jack "committee". A lot of people seem to think The Jack is a typical barbecue contest; they could not be more wrong. The Jack is a marketing event for a Brown-Forman brand called Jack Daniels. It is not and never has been a sanctioned contest. It is a unique event and there is nothing else like it, period. It is an invitational and they can make any rules they want to and invite who they want to. The primary purpose is to get the Jack Daniels brand publicized. They use mostly celebrity judges; TV personalities, chefs, nationally known figures, etc. because these people talk and write about going to Lynchburg and judging the Jack Daniels contest. It gets the Jack Daniels name in the media. If you want to cook The Jack, meet the requirements and get invited. Otherwise, don't try to force your way in by trying to bend the rules or get by on some technical loophole you may think exists. I hope to see some of you in the holler in October.
