7. Nice placement and arrangement but with so many slices they are not evenly spaced.

Score/Reasons: 7 - Too much meat in the box, poorly trimmed, presented and looking way too dry.

Not sure why the cook submitted so many pieces in the box, but I give him (her) credit for it. Meat looks very appealing also. Scored an 8

Score 7. This score is based on a extremely poor picture and could score better with a better picture. I also would suggest that the cook use slices that are more uniform as it is not necessary to overload the box especially when using slices that vary so much. No WOW factor with this entry especially with this picture.

8 - Could just be the picture, but it looks a bit dry - that stopped the 9.

Score/Reasons = 9, looks a bit dry, but that is probably just the angle of the photo, otherwise looks great!

I give this box a 8. Lettuce is a little out of control, but he meat looks good. I would like to pick it up and try it.

Score/Reasons = 8, overall, the box looks pretty good. The only slight problem is the uneven spacing of the slices.

Score/Reasons = 7. Picture is a bit out of focus. Meat appears nicely cooked, but a bit dry.

7 No zing - or appeal for appearance judging.
1/15/2014 02:02:54 am
8- Nice box of brisket. Pieces have a dry appearance.
1/15/2014 02:05:11 am
Bad picture= no score. However, I see lots of goobers and figure the last, small piece is overcooked and dry...

Score = 8 maybe 9. Photo is kind of dark and hard to get a good look at the brisket. Looks a little dry from the photo.

SCORE/REASONS: 8. Looks a little dry, probably because of the photo angel.

score / reason 9 looks good maybe give it a spritz to make it look moist before closing the lid
1/21/2014 09:17:45 am
I would give this an 8 for appearance. The color is good but the slices are not uniform.

8, I liked the display but, it needed to be cleaned up on the left side and it looks a little dry

Score/Reasons = 5, maybe a 6 in person (blurriness doesn't help), beef looks dry and overcooked, but I like that you give the judges a very full box.

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. ;-)
