8. Odd striations from the type of knife used. Clean up the random bits on the slices and neaten the arrangement a bit. Not sure about the burnt ends due to the angle of the shot.

7 - The box has an overall unkempt appearance about it plus I don't care for the knife marks on the face of the slices.

Nice color and bark. Meat looks juicy. Slices could be lined up better. The big piece of lettuce on the left back is distracting but still a ...................9

The sauce or aus jus on the slices looks uneven with some dry spots showing. I'd still give this box a 9 though.

6 Slices are not uniform nor are they placed in the box neatly.

The knife marks are distracting however, I give this an 8 b/c you didn't take the time to remove the goobers. o/w a 9...

Slice thickness varies, knife marks on slices distracting. Very seldom see only 6 slices of brisket, makes for too much view especially when they are covered with bark specks in basting liquid.

8 - slices lack uniformity, symmetry on right side is off, and lower right side piece seems to be shielding defect in the first two slices.

7- Lost points on uneven layering of brisket. Place other pieces of meat all together either on the top bottom left or right not separate on different sides

The bits of bark are a bit of distraction. 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. ;-)
