Score/Reasons = 9. Color a bit light but looks tasty!

Score/Reasons=9, looks good. I was on the border of 8 and 9. The chunks were not as appealing to me as I would have liked. Think they need more visible bark.

8 - Spotty sauce on BE's and remove the small bits of meat leftover from slicing. Score could change if the ends were visible.

7 - Better arrangement and knife work on the burnt ends would help the appearance. I would liked to have seen a picture of the entire box and not such a magnified view.

8 - I'm not sure about those burnt ends, they look more like cubed brisket...

9- Brisket looks moist; burnt ends have a nice shine on them. Uniform thickness on slices and arrayed in the box in a pleasing manner. Good color.

Score/Reasons = 9, that looks delicious - great color, even slices, full box, nice presentation
1/23/2014 12:28:29 am
I give this a 9. But I would like to see this one not zoomed in.
1/23/2014 01:25:24 am
Score/Reasons = 6 first thought and impression. Photo is really too big to see the whole entry.

Score/Reasons = 9, the meat looks pretty good. Can't tell what the sides of the slices are like.

Score/Reasons = 8, what I can see of the meat looks pretty good, but not excellent. looks moist, but I'm not a fan of RED beef (unless it is the interior of my steak!). Only one of the BEs actually looks like a BE (if a bit light!). Good thing there are 7 slices in the box, as it looks like slice 2 and 3 are still connected on the right side.

No Score. It is not possible to score this box as the picture was taken too close and does not show the complete box. When the picture is taken it should represent a box, in a manner as close as possible, to what a judge would actually see when the box is viewed at the judging table. It is hard enough to fairly judge a box from a picture compared to the actual box and poorly taken pictures should not be submitted.
1/23/2014 03:23:29 am
Nice even color. Pieces are consistently cooked and evenly glazed. I would like to have seen at least an equal number of burnt ends to match the number of slices. It looks delicious., A solid 9.
1/23/2014 03:41:47 am
8 looks moist!

8- very nice box. the only thing that held it back was the lack of bark on the "burnt" ends.

Score/Comments: 9/Great looking meat!
1/23/2014 11:18:38 am
9- Slices look moist, as do the burnt ends. Great color. Excellent box.

Well partial view notwithstanding I would eat lots of this.

Really looks awesome

8 - Need a better picture to be able to give a complete score. Looks great! Suggest a more even coating of the au jus, back slice appears dry as do the right edges of the front slices.

8 - I would like to have had a better picture showing the entire box but based on what I can see it looks pretty good. Nicely sauced. Meat looks very appetizing. I would be a little more careful with the size & shapes of the burnt ends.

Score/Reasons = 9 Looks moist and tender. Point cubes are always a plus.

Score 9 - Slices look moist and have nice looking textured surface. The burnt ends look good, but the right two ends do not look evenly sauced. Photo would be better if the entire box interior could be seen. I would like to see the ends of the slices to see how it fits the box.

BBQ Critics: Compare your scores with other judges. Have fun and learn for ways to improve your scores. If you are way off from the average of these scores, take a second look and see if there is room for improvement. After reading comments, ask yourself, "Did I score too high? Did I score too low?" Always look for ways to improve.
Comments are closed.
WELCOME to the Judge My Box section on BBQ Critic. This is a great place for competition cooks to submit boxes and get feedback on appearance scores from Certified BBQ Judges.

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. ;-)
