Score = 8. Nice slices and chunks but meat looks over-sauced.
12/17/2013 01:28:32 am
8. Good layout, nice color, even sizing, look moist. However, slices are not aligned - some extend to the right and some to the left.
12/17/2013 01:35:55 am
Score 8. This entry appears to be some nice brisket, but I do not care for the glaze that the meat is cover with. For this reason I deducted one point.

Score - 9 great looking box
Doug KCBS MCBJ & CTC

Score = 7, Sauce is uneven, color is uneven. Too much sauce on the slices at the top of the box.
Frank KCBS MCBJ CTC

Score/Reasons = 9. Good looking slices with a light saucing. Burnt ends look tasty.
12/17/2013 03:55:05 am
9 -- As pretty a box of brisket as I have seen.
12/17/2013 04:04:13 am
7 - Brush strokes, spotty/uneven sauce. Second slice from the top has piece missing.
12/17/2013 04:34:47 am
9- Slices look moist, as do the burnt ends. Great color. Excellent box.

9 looks perfect to me!
12/17/2013 07:25:10 am
8 - Heavy brown colored sauce is my reason for not giving a 9. Some slices do not have sauce on the ends, appears two burnt ends are sauced the others not. 1st piece looks small compared to the rest.
12/17/2013 07:48:20 am
12/17/2013 08:54:48 am
My immediate reaction is 9 as I continue to look it might not score so high in person.

I would score this box a 9! Looks wonderful!
Roger/FBA Cert judge
12/17/2013 10:58:15 am
Very good looking box only thing that you might want to change is even glazing the first three pieces look a little light on glaze.I would go 8.5 depending on taste of course.
12/17/2013 12:04:37 pm
I give it an 7. An attractive box, but too much sauce on the slices..
Steve R - KCBS & BBQ Brethren CBJ
12/17/2013 01:25:22 pm
This is the definition of a 9 ! Nice and full box, neatly arrainged, meat looks delicious and not too much sauce. Even an extra piece for the TC. Nice job
12/17/2013 11:12:07 pm
12/18/2013 02:18:57 am
Score/Reasons = 9, the box looks good. I like the color
12/18/2013 05:54:23 pm
8 - box looks looks nice but more attention should be given to detail. Sauce is not evenly applied, slices are not uniform and symmetrical, and sauce is on the inside edges of box.
12/19/2013 10:34:40 pm
Score/Reasons = 7 Samples are neatly arranged. I like to see slices and cubes. Hard to tell what the meat looks like under all that gravy though.

Score/Reasons = 8, maybe a 9 in person, meat looks nice, but a bit hard to tell because of all the sauce. Burnt ends look great - this box is making me hungry!
Seaton Hall - KCBS

8. Spacing of slices is not uniform. The front slice looks like someone has already nibbled on it.
Tom - CMJ/KCBS; CMJ/MBN,NCPC,NCBS & comp cook
12/23/2013 02:30:29 am
Score/Reasons = 8, oversauced! not evenly sauced, reduced the appetizing factor.
12/23/2013 07:18:00 am
9 Full box and meat looks moist with good color.
12/24/2013 12:58:50 am
9 outstanding presentation

8-9 looks very good, make the parsley even all around the meat. put sauce on the bare spots 4th slice on both ends and 5-7 on the left sides.
Jeff KCBS CBJ

score/reason 8 good color, borderline thick sauce, looks moist burnt ends could be more uniform in size and placed straighter
Chaz D KCBS CBJ

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. ;-)
