Sounds like a great idea Greg, except I would choose the Roundtable panel ahead of time based on the topic you want to discuss and the expertise of the panel members similar to what you've done in the past with the brisket, pork, and rib roundtables. Of course you have to count on them calling in but I don't think anyone on the forum would let you down. It's those celbrity outsiders you have to watch out for!
Another good show last night. Just a couple of clarification points on KCBS garnish. Garnish is entirely optional not mandatory in KCBS contests. However, choosing not to use garnish in a contest would put you at a tremendous disadvantage wtih the judges. And edible flowers and seaweed would be automatic disqualifiers if used as garnish in a KCBS competition. Of course you could always serve them up in the Anything But category as the main course and see how they might score. My guess would be not so well!
