Score 8. This box is just too overloaded to be appealing. It certainly is not necessary to place this much meat into the box. If the best slices only would be used I believe it would make the box more attractive and also would score higher. Bigger is better is not always true.

Score/Reasons = 8, looks moist - something about the sauce stops me from giving it a 9.
12/29/2013 11:44:53 pm
Score/Reasons = 9 Don't usually care for sauce added after the cook but this was not overdone. Looks tasty.

8 The box may be too full. The slices in the front need to be seperated like the rest of the box to make the box consistent.

Good color. Nice smoke ring. Sauced perfectly. Slices may exceed width requirement, but overall an attractive box. A solid 8.

Score/Reasons = 8. A darker bark would mahe this more appealing, otherwise looks tasty.

Score/Reasons = 8, There is too much glaze which make the meat look too slimy. Also, the first several slices of meat appear to me standing upright while the rest are at an angle. This could be due to the picture, however, the slices are not spaced evenly.

Score/Reasons = 8, top edges look moist, but can't truly tell about the faces of the slices. Looks very good, but lacks that POP or WOW factor.

8 Good looking box.

8 - Looks a little too pale in color or the sauce is effecting the color too much to go with a 9. Nice looking slices, good presentation.

Score: I would score this box a 9. Meat looks moist and delicious!

CBJ - 6 I try and select my score in the first 30 secs just like in a contest. Pluses- Nothing exciting about presentation. The cut of the slices is even and sauce level seems even. Minuses- pieces are not stacked in box evenly. It looks like a hurry up job. Not much bark on slices. The color is too light.

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. ;-)
