6 This looks dreadful, and drippy too.

Meat color is off, hopefully it's the picture. Nice looking slices and chunks but the sauce is very sloppy. Score it a 7, maybe an 8 in person.

Score 3 - The photo is awful.The contrast with the green makes the meat look yellow and not at all appetizing.

8 - Brush strokes and a torn slice are distracting.

9 - stellar brisket. Sure hope the taste & tenderness are as good as it looks.

I wanted to give a 9 based on the even layout and placement but the brush marks are very visible so I rate a 8

Score 7. This might not be a fair score, but it is based on the poor quality picture. The green color of the meat, the pieces of leftover spices in the sauce and the rough cutting all distract from this entry

A 7. Look moist, nice bark and smoke ring but placement of slices is ragged and cubes have uneven color

9. Bad picture - color off and too close. Some may object to the brush strokes. This is Excellent meat.

Not great, not terrible. The sauceing and brush marks are not a plus.

Sauce looks a little uneven and color of the chunks is also uneven. I'd give this box an 8.

Wow! We got scores here from a 3 to 9! I believe the problem here is mostly the quality of the photo. This box would look much better in person. However, we are not in a live contest, so we roll with the punches. ;-)

CERTIFIED BBQ JUDGES:
Please score this BBQ Competition box using the KCBS scoring system below.
1-DISQUALIFIED (give reason).
Click on BOX # in title of post above photo. Fill out the "LEAVE A REPLY" form and use the following format to TITLE each section in your post:
NAME FIELD ON FORM:
State name/CBJ Organization (i.e, Tom - CBJ/KCBS). CBJ=Certified BBQ Judge
EMAIL FIELD ON FORM:
You must be a "registered" BBQ Critic Online Judge in order to judge boxes on this site. Proof of registration is your email. All registered judges are required add their email to the email form field. Emails are kept private and not published. If you do not list your email, your score/post will not appear on the site.
SCORE/REASONS FOR SCORE: Score this entry and give reasons for your score. DO NOT mention garnish or smoke rings in your reasons for scoring. We judge meat only.
SUGGESTIONS: Feel free to offer any suggestions on how to improve the box (keep separate from reasons why you scored the box). You can mention anything here such as garnish suggestions.
The purpose of BBQ Critic's JudgeMyBox section is to provide feedback to competition cooks. Certified BBQ Judges who visit this site will score the photo of a contest box (using KCBS judging rules) and may optionally leave a comment explaining their score.
The idea is to allow the cook to get inside the mind of a judge (judges do have varying opinions) so they can use this information to help improve scores on APPEARANCE.
In turn, the BBQ Critic editorial team will provide feedback on some judge scores and commentary that stray from the KCBS rules. This will help our judges become better judges and keeps everyone on the same page. Judges may also encounter some fun challenges at times (click for example).
Comments about boxes or judges scores may be discussed in our online FORUM in a respectful manner.
Please be mindful that scoring photo boxes may not be as accurate as scoring the box in person. Lighting, glare, angles, etc may affect the overall score. Judges also have more time to stare at your box, so that means we may get very detailed about the good and the bad.
Have fun, judges! Oh, and cooks? Please send us your boxes. We love to judge Q here at BBQ Critic. ;-)
