7 - Slices are very close to same size and are arranged in an inviting way. The sauce enhances the appearance making it look moist. The bark could have been a little darker for my tastes, but does look very good.

8. Had the fat not been so thick and loose I would have said 9

Take that extra 20 seconds to line up that left side perfectly and remove the crumbs. That shows me as a judge you really are trying for that 9. Also, not a fan of the sloppy fat line, but this one does look pretty well rendered.

Score/Reasons = 9, Nice box, the meat looks moist. I like the strip of fat on the bottom edge of the slice, fat is flavor.

9 - Looks nice and moist. Some judges my score down for the fat vein...I could have scored down for the meat not being centered. The garnish gap on the left is wider than the right...Good Job!

score / reason 8 fat strip sticks out like sore thumb, other wise the slice are the same size and coloring.

8 looks moist almost gave it a 9. But, the left side had a chip of meat on one of the slices. I know it's being picky.
7/27/2014 06:01:14 pm
Score/Reasons = 7, untrimmed fat layer and uneven right side.

Score/Reasons = 9. Looks delicious.

8. Nice layout and arrangement. Look moist. The ragged ends on the right side of the box detract from the good knife skills shown on the left side.

8- Brisket slices are uniform but neatly trimmed on left and untrimmed on right. The untrimmed fat on the bottom slice takes away from the appearance. other than that, great 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. ;-)
