8 slightly off center,could be mishandled burnt ends look tasty
5/6/2013 02:26:52 pm
7 - chunks are not as appetizing as the slices.
5/6/2013 02:51:53 pm
7 Look not appetizing and slices appear thick, maybe overdone, not sure. And ditch some of that garnish.

8,I would like to see some more slices in the box if possible, I know only 6 are required,also if the pieces were centered in the box a little better would be nice,with the angle this was taken at I cant really get a good look at the meat.

9. This brisket has good color and not too much sauce. Nice arrangement in the box.

Score/Reason - 8. May be higher in person. Angle and lighting make this box a bit difficult to judge. Nice, even gloss from light hand on the sauce.
5/6/2013 03:40:12 pm
Score 9. Reason: Great color and balance to this box. I would caution adding any more sauce as I feel this amount gives the meat a nice appearance, but any more could cause the meat to be hidden and loss of points.

Score/Reason: 7; The fact that the meat is absolutely slathered with some sort of thickened broth/sauce is off-putting. Appears that the cook was trying to compensate for brisket that may be overcooked.

Nice thick slices, I'm not sure about sauce it looks like paint. Are the slices off center to the right? Square ends are uninspiring, they're just there.

8 Photo doesn't do this one justice.

Score 8: The layout is a bit odd and makes viewing the meat a bit difficult (which you NEVER want to do). The meat looks like its done well and should be juicy.

Score/Reasons = 7, really difficult to tell from the photo, but looks TOO moist. Lacks some appetizing appeal.
5/7/2013 08:07:11 am
7 - thick slices are not appealing, makes the brisket look hard. Placement in box is off center

Score / Reasons = 7, Appreciate changing up the way the meat is boxed but the placement of the slices away from the judges makes if very difficult to see the meat clearly. The ends look good.

9......Good bark, color and moisture. Even cut slices and burnt ends. Nice shine.

8 - I think another camera angle would haveenhanced the presentation however, a few additional slices would have given the box a fuller apperance. I think adding 7 or 8 pieces also makes the box look better and gives the last judge at least two pieces to choose from.

Socre/Reason: 8, Meat looks moist with some good color.

Score/Reasons = 8, because I can't see the meat well enough to socre it differently!

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. ;-)
