7 The color bothers me, maybe it's just the camera work, but this one has potential.

5 - orange look - not appetizing.

Nice looking presentation but I'm not sure about the sauce. It looks like they missed a couple of spots. 7 possibly an 8.

Score 8 - The orange color is not familiar to me and I would like to taste this entry to see if the sauce is something new to me.

8 - Splotchy sauce.

9 - nice looking box.

Score 9. Even thought this is great looking brisket I would caution the cooks about hiding the front slice behind the burnt ends.

Hard to judge the meat because of the sauce. Burnt ends look good. Good bark.....8. Might be a 9 withe less sauce.

8. Beautiful box. Would be a 9. but for the heavy sauce.

An A+ for the full box of meat, but if your going to oversauce it make sure you oversauce every bit of the slices. The dry spots stick out like a sore thumb.

Sauce is uneven and way to heavy. This box is a 7.

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. ;-)
