E.A.T. stands for Execution (35%), Appearance (15%), and Taste (50%). I love that every dish is judged on its own merit, just like Kansas City Barbeque Society (KCBS). Although I’ve been judging competitions since 2010 and WFC since 2014, it was great to finally get E.A.T Certified and have a snazzy gold card.
