As a judge my take is the same. If you (the cook) left it on top of the food, it should be eaten with the food. Since cilantro is another legit garnish, that could legally be sprinkled on top of food to eat. Cooks know that any other food larger than what is in a rub or sause is not allowed to be sprinkled on top or there is a DQ, but if any sizable amount of legal garnish appears (the translation of appears is the judges call) to be sprinkled on top, there would be no way (without asking the cook) to know if that garnish was supposed to be there or not. I could assume it was accidental BUT I am sitting at the table not knowing what I am getting ready to see and my personal ideas are on hold so that bias towards what I am getting ready to see and taste is put aside to judge good professional BBQ.
