The following are descriptions of the official scoring criteria for all food categories. Contest judges are briefed on the criteria.
THEME – Scored Onsite ONLY (5 points maximum)
• Effort expended to create a unique “theme”
• Involvement of all the team members
APPERANCE OF ENTRY – Scored Onsite ONLY (5 points maximum)
• How appetizing does the whole pig appear?
• Has the entry reached its proper level of finish?
TEXTURE – Scored Blind (10 points maximum)
• The pork sample is scored on its tenderness. Pork entries should have texture but pull apart easily, without complete loss of body our mushiness.
• The skin sample is scored on how thoroughly toasted and crisp it is.
FLAVOR OF ENTRY – Scored Blind (20 points maximum)
• The entry is scored on its taste. If a sauce is served with the entry, it is scored on how it complements the main product.
OVERALL IMPRESSION – Scored Onsite (5 points maximum) and Blind (5 points maximum)
• Overall impression is not an average of all the other judging criteria. It is a separate judging criterion measuring the judge’s overall subjective experience of the judging team. Attention can be paid to all the factors that do not seem to fit anywhere else, since not every conceivable aspect of pig roasting can be scored separately.
