8 - I wanted to give a 9 here, but the sauce makes the meat look a little gritty.

9 - nice looking box

8. good layout, even color, look moist. However with so many slices its hard to aline them all equally. Additionally, the front left cube has fallen on its side.

9 - I started with a strong 8 but since we don't use decimals, I had to mark it up. Once suggestion, clean up the burnt ends, make the presentation "pop" when you open the box. I like the slices, you can see the shape of the meat.........good job.

9 - Looks moist has nice color. Excellent box.
6/13/2014 10:18:52 am
8 - Very nice looking box, Sauce is uneven and some of the burnt ends looked ragged, like they were torn not cut.

8 to many crumbs, dust makes for a gritty appearance
6/13/2014 01:20:48 pm
That there is a 9 - great color on the slices, the burnt ends look to have a great texture - slightly crispy. I could hardly wait to sample that box...

7....Meat looks dry. Nice bark on the Burnt Ends but a couple on the left side need to be cleaner cut. Sauce looks grainy.

Score/Reasons: 8 - great color, nice layout, plenty of meat. Slices look slightly dry. I acknowledge that it could be the photo, so it could be a 9 in person.

Score = 9, Nice looking bark on the slice and burnt ends.
6/15/2014 05:19:59 am
8 - Another very solid entry with a generous offering of meat. The burnt ends look like they were returned to the smoker and finished well. The brisket has a very good bark, but may be a touch dry.

8 - I do like the way this box looks, but, may I suggest having the same number of slices to burnt ends ratio. My eyes picked up the imbalance immediately .

9 - a lot of meat in that box. Looks good. Burnt ends look great. If I was the table table for that box I'd be very happy.

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. ;-)
