8 looks a little dry. maybe needs a little glaze. it also looks sliced fairly thin which leads me to believe it may have been on the tough side. thin appearance could be due to photo angle.

8 - Possibly a 9 in person. The white balance is off and not quite focused. Very nice box.

9 Nice lineup (but I wish for more light in the photo). I'm only guessing on moisture, texture, etc.

8. The extra back slices are noticeably of different shape than the others. Its a 9 if they were removed.

7 - nice presented, but looks uninteresting to me. Meat appears grey, dull and lifeless. Maybe it's the photo...at least I hope so.

My score on this brisket would be an 8, possibly a 9 in person. Slices are even and meat looks like it has been cooked very well. However, it does look a little dry... might not be the case in person.

9 really nice looking box, note that a lot if judges look for burnt ends. Not supposed to judge based on that though.

Looking at the fuzzy picture, I can't tell much about the appearance or moisture however, the box is well laid-out and could do well. No score from me on this.

Pretty nice presentation. Looks like the back 2 or 3 slices have been reversed, harms continuity. Not the best picture, it looks like the meat could be dry.

SCORE/REASONS: 7 - above average. Blurry picture doesn't help, but meat looks dry and a bit on the grey side.

I would give this an 8, for one reason the Brisket looks dry, but that can be the picture as well. Other than that its uniform in size and placement. good looking box just not Excellent.

8 - Very Good - Looks a little dry is all.

I would rate this entry an 8 for appearance based on the pic. If it looked moist in person it would be a 9. Nice work!

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. ;-)
