12/29/2013 01:52:41 am

Score - 9 beautiful burnt ends and presentation.
12/29/2013 02:13:58 am
7 - Looks good, but I am concerned about the vast differences that supposedly came off the same brisket. Or does this organization allow the entries to be parted out and cooked on different grills?
12/29/2013 02:37:30 am
Score 8. I do not care for the glossy sauce this brisket has been coated with. It give the entry a plastic look which is not a true representation of brisket.

Score/Reasons: 8. Can's fully see the slices and a little too much sauce.

9- Not the best picture, but...appears moist - possibly too much so. Was split between 8 and 9. Benefit goes to the cook.

Score = 9 hard to get a good look at the meat from the angle of the photo, but from what I can see it looks great.

7 - 8 My first impression was 7 because the box looked like it had too many open spaces. The meat itself appears to have too much sauce on the top of the brisket as well as the burnt ends.
12/30/2013 04:12:57 am
Neat box. Good sauce, Meat may be slightly undercooked and the slices are a little thick, but overall an attractive and well presented entry. I give it an 8 or possibly a 9.

Score/Reasons = 8. Looks great, but would like to see the bark on the slices darker.

Score/Reasons = 8, the slices have too much glaze which makes the meat look slimy. Beside that, the box looks pretty good.

9 Great looking box!

8 - Nice presentation, the slices are a little pale in color. Consider putting more meat in the box.

8....Meat looks under cooked. Bark on slices and money muscle doesn't match. Ends cut off.

I would score this box a 9. You can tell there was great care taken when putting this box together.

CBJ - score 8 Pluses- are nice attractive layout. I like the confidence shown with the ends as well as the slices. Ends appear to have a nice bark. Minuses- the color on the slices should be darker (more bark) on the top. The sizes of the ends are not even.

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. ;-)
