*Dry rubs would qualify as intentionally dry

Each judge will also be able to select eligible wings for the Hottest, or Most Original categories, but these categories will be evaluated independently using a mixture of the above criteria.
Judges will not discuss their opinions until after the event (although some opinions are sometimes expressed via the universal choking gesture).
For those of you who have not judged before, there is a People’s Choice category for all food items (brownies, deep fried goodies, wings, etc.)
Here is how the People’s Choice will go down:
Each attendee can vote for their favorite food item using the People's Choice voting ticket provided with their paid donation packet. Attendees are responsible for clearly identifying the cook name and recipe name on the back of the People's Choice voting card, and submitting at the judges table.
We will also make announcements to remind people to pick up a voting ticket, but ultimately the cooks will need to be the ones encouraging folks to vote (via any means necessary) for their various food items that are competing for People’s Choice. Judges will tally the votes for each People's Choice entry and winners for People's Choice and People's Choice Honorable Mention will be announced during the awards ceremony.
There is no cost for wing cooks to enter the judged competition.
