9 I like this one. The look, the slicing, the uniformity is all there. Would love to be there for taste and texture.

Strong 8. Brisket looks awesome but burnt ends may be too done. Possibly a 9 in person.
5/6/2013 03:35:42 pm
Score 8. Reason: I really like the brisket slices, but the "black bar" of burnt ends in the back of the box is a turn-off to me. Brisket alone would have scored 9.

Nothing horrible, nothing sensational, slices could be lined up better towards the rear. Pretty good looking bark, slices have a sheen to them. Square ends are present. There is just nothing very exciting.

Score:9 The meat looks nice and moist and the box layout is neat and clean looking. The meat might be tending to be a bit gray.

Score/Reasons = 9, benefit to the cook as I believe in person it would look more moist than the photo.

Score / Reasons = 8, the slices look a little dry. The ends looks pretty good but just a little over sauced.

Score/Reason: 9, Wonderful Color. Slices uniform and natural looking. The Burnt Ends got me salivating.

Score/Reasons = 8, The angle of the photo makes the front slice of the brisket appear dull, gray and possibly dry. However, I can't tell anything else about the meat!

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. ;-)
