  3. Burger patty can be made of any protein or meat you choose.
  4. Burger meat must be ground and be shaped into the form of a patty.
  5. The competition will provide each team one turn-in box. Turn in one whole full size burger in the provided box.  The provided foil sheet must stay under the burger.  The burger should not be cut into pieces.
