It has been awhile since I competed so I am quite surprised about the obsession with exact same size and shape that people go to for their chicken presentation. I saw on BBQ Pitmasters that Myron Mixon uses cup cake forms to make sure each piece is exactly the same.
Just when this this come about? It used to be if they looked good, weren't burnt, nice color etc you did fine. Now it seems they need to be totally uniform to get a decent appearance score.
