8. Good layout, nice arrangement. Good knife skills. However, the meat looks dry.

8 - like the basics, but looks dry.

I would rate this box an 8. Great smoke ring, nice burnt ends . neatly done

8 - Picture out of focus. Placement looks nice and neat. I scored down as it looks dry. Perhaps that is a focus issue...

I'm not crazy about the color. But I am going to give this one a low 9.
7/11/2014 10:08:17 am
Very nice - I would give this an 8, probably. If it had a light glaze with sauce or meat juice so that it glistened and looked less dry, I would probably give it a 9.

9 - Picture does not flatter the presentation, I went with the cook. Appears low in moisture; however, it is a very balanced and appealing box.

Score/Reasons = 8/The picture is not doing this sample any favors. It's blurry and difficult to tell about the moisture in the meat. However, as far as I can tell, it's well prepared, and the burnt ends appear to be good.

9 - plenty of meat to choose my sample to taste. Nice full box. Love the addition of burnt ends. The slices are even and nicely placed in the box.

I hope it is the poor quality of the picture that makes me score this a 5. from the picture, it looks dry and tough. hopefully it was just the photo.

Good color and uniformity of slices and burnt ends. Meat looks dry but could be the camera. Overall a nice looking and well presented box worthy of an 8.

Score/Reasons = 8, nothing spectacular with the box. The meat does look a little dry. Presentation is just like most other.

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. ;-)
