7 Dry, not appetizing at all.

Nice full box. Top 2 slices kind of look out of place but otherwise I'd score it an 8.

Score 5 - Don't trim. From the looks of the cubes, the meat had bark that was trimmed for some reason.

8 - Looks dry and the cuts look strange.

7 - brisket has a ragged appearance with all the little meat tags hanging around, plus it looks dry.

Score 9. No chance for the judges to allow the garnish to enter in this score as the cooks have really filled this box. Nice layout of this box and great looking brisket.

An 8. Nice placement but back slice has different color and the whole box looks dry.

On the positive side the burnt ends look good. The Negative side is the bland looking slices.......7

9. A bit crowded and I personally like a little more bark, but the meat looks very tasty.

Boy, not much character here. Pretty bland looking. It appears you sliced with a machete.. and there's the obligitory "square"

Nice looking brisket box. The photo makes the meat look a little dry. I'd give this box an 8.

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. ;-)
