7 stack a bit uneven along with the difference in length, color good, can't

Slices are uniform showing the best of each slice. The burnt ends are gorgeous. Everything looks moist and ready to be sampled. My only suggestion would be to work on the arrangement of the burnt ends so they look like they weren't thrown into the box as an after thought. All in all, a very nice box; an easy 9

score/reason 8 nice color & moisture appealing, slices could of been cut more even and burnt ends look like they were just thrown in.

Score/Reasons: 8/while the meat looks really scrumptious, there are little detractors: "Debris" on some of the strips, which could have been carefully removed; the placement is left-justified which causes a slant to the meat!

9 - Looks fantastic, can't wait to taste both the bark on the slices and the burnt ends as looks moist and promising in terms of texture.
6/27/2013 04:41:28 pm
9 - slices look uniformly clean cut and moist, very appetizing to the eye. Burnt ends look juicy and tasty. I would want to eat this brisket. Although the smoke ring should not be judged, this brisket has an impressive smoke ring, very nice.

Score 9 - Great looking brisket, easy 9 on appearance, wonder if this one passed the pull test
6/27/2013 06:12:50 pm
6 - looks artificial. why so different colors in slices and chunks?
6/27/2013 10:00:59 pm
9 - Looks great.

Score 7. Reason: The burnt ends ruined this score. If the box would have contained only the sliced brisket, I believe, it would have received a 9. The burnt ends look off-color, overcooked, and dry. Suggestion to all cooks: If park of your entry is not quite up to par-LEAVE IT OUT !. Nothing states you must place it into the box and something that is not up to your usual standard can be left out. It will improve your scores.

Score/reasons: 9 Nice presentation and the meat looks nice and juicy.
6/28/2013 12:14:40 am
Score/Reasons = 7 or 8, burnt ends look good, but the slices have an off-color (possibly bad lighting) and the symmetry is a little off.

Looks great, I'd give it a 9.
6/28/2013 03:35:41 am
Scored a 9 - VERY nice entry. I like the way the meat starts off one size in front and each piece gets bigger.

9 - it looks moist and tender, with generous portions. I can't wait to try this meat.
6/28/2013 03:28:18 pm
i'd give it an 8,the pieces are tapered quite a bit, ,sounds kinda nit picky but that's the difference between a 8 box and a 9 box. Burnt ends look REAL good to me.

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. ;-)
