Score 9. Overlooking the sauce dotted around the box and also the fact that the brisket should have been centered on the garnish, this is a great looking entry.

9 perfect looking box to me

8 - having a product look as good as these slices, it seems there would be more attention given to detail. Placement, symmetry and the cleanliness of the box is crucial. Had these been considered, this box would have been scored 9.

Score/Reasons: 8 - Good looking brisket, appears juicy. Right ends of all slices appears rather raggedy and distracts from appearance.

8 - Remove goobers and the front piece looks folded.

8... Tried to give it a 9 but came up short. Nice looking brisket. Looks juicy with a nice bark. Sloppy presentation. The bottom part of the front slice is distracting.

I would score this box a 9. Looks super yummy!

CBJ - 7 I try and score my boxes in 30 seconds. Pluses- meat looks very juicy. The contrast between bark and meat look pretty good. Minuses- Looks like not much effort put in placing meat in the box. The group is off center, the piece on the bottom caught my eye and the right edges are ragged. The meat looks good, the execution is lacking

Online BBQ Judge Sign-up
You are REQUIRED to register as a BBQ Critic Online Judge to be allowed to judge boxes on this site. Click here to sign up now.
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. ;-)
