I agree with you that "falling off the bone" is not to KCBS standards. I've been competing for more than a few years and am a Certified Judge myself. Also, I completely understand the space and time limitations on comment cards. Its the Twi**er (wont let me put the real name) of the BBQ circuit, 140 letter max it seems. But, my point was that the judge wrote that they LOVED the taste of the rib, THEIR WORD, but could not fully assess the rib because the bone came completely out in the first bite. I fail to see the connection between the taste and tenderness of the rib? If the taste is good, and you like (LOVE) it, score it appropriately. Ding me on tenderness, I know I had that coming and deserved it. And I'm not in any way trashing judges whatsoever, I'm glad they take the time to do what they do. I truly did, and DO, appreciate comment card each and every time we get them but some are more helpful than others. We KNEW that our ribs were overdone and this judge took the time to "tweet" that they were overdone, confirming our thoughts. I was simply stating that I was a bit confused by their assertion that the tenderness of the rib somehow affected the taste. When I judge I don't see the two scores, taste and tenderness, as somehow connected as that judge seems to do.
