The reason for the muffin pans was that what the judges decided to dictate by scoring down for not having 6 separate identical pieces. Because that was the judges personal preference and no where in the rules does it say they have to be identical, same size, shape, width or thickness. The rules say identifiable, not identical. Many a box can be a 9 and be very nicely presented even when all the pieces don't look the same. Is muffin tin chicken identifiable as chicken thighs or do they look like something else?
but hey you want the judges to decide for themselves, that's what got use muffin tins.
That's the point Pat for the fun and a chance at the glory. The only way to glory these days is to be about the added stuff and the meat is just a host. Shouldn't your food be able to win just as much as the next guy, especially if your food is about the meat, and not a 1 bite wow factor?
Computer controls and all the other stuff was around before( and guys cooking like you were still winning), the only thing that has really changed in the 3 years we were out of competition due to having a restaurant is the added profiles, and shaping your meat to be identical.
