8. Blurry and color is off. Hard to see the slices at this angle. Looks like th burnt ends have little bark. Could be a 9 in person.

7 Dry look, and the slices appear thick, not a good sign.

9 - nice box. With THAT nice of appearance, I'm not about to deduct because the slices are curved to fit into the box.

Brisket looks good. Not overly sauced. Good bark. Nice even cut on the slices. Burnt ends could use more bark but still a ........9

Score 7 - When a brisket holds together this well, while assembling the box, I don't believe it will pull well.

Nice layout out of box. Meat looks slightly dried out so the appeal

Slices look dry and there is not a lot of color on the chunks. I'd give this box an 8.

8 Very appetizing with a nice sheen. Slices and burnt ends.

7 or maybe an 8 in person. Looks dry and maybe overcooked b/c of the thick slices. The burnt ends aren't burnt. Why are they in the box??

Pretty nice look! Well cut even slices (kinda scrunched in corner).

8 - would like to have seen a better picture quality

8 - nice layering of brisket but a point off for no arrangement on the other pieces of meat. Arrange those in a straight line and its a 9.

Would have prefered the slices layed out to more to see the grain. 8

Online BBQ Judge Sign-up
You are REQUIRED to register as a BBQ Critic Online Judge to be allowed to judge boxes on this site. Click here to sign up now.
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. ;-)
