So, you may be thinking about becoming a barbecue judge ... or perhaps you just want to know what it is that the judges are looking for (and tasting) when judging great barbecue. Who are the table captains? And what do they do? Who officiates the contests? Overcooked? Under cooked? Too Salty? Too flat tasting? Mushy? Tough? and many more.
No matter what you call it, the baste sop mop covers it all by helping the meat to stay moist and flavorful during the cooking process. If you have not tried a baste, sop or mop (all the same thing) then you owe yourself to get after it today!
