7 - inconsistant slices, nice color and meat looks moist. Straighten up the slices and cut them uniformly and you'll easily have a 9.

7. Nice arrangement. Good layout. Look moist. Slices, however, are of different widths and that degraded the box. The pulled brisket was evenly sized which is hard to accomplish with brisket - keep up that effort.

Score/Reasons = 7, meat looks a little dry, slices are definitely too dissimilar. Attention to details!

8 - Solid entry here with a bonus inclusion of shredded brisket. The slices vary in width, more consistency there would have helped the entry. The bark is a little light, but perhaps that's just a personal bias. This is a very good entry.

Score/Reasons = 7. Chopped looks moist and inviting. Slices look overcooked. I don't mark down for uneven slices, but this box has way too much variance.

7 - Extra thick slices appear falling apart and chopped looks mushy/overcooked.

6 Slices not uniform. Chopped and thickness of slices tells me it's overcooked. Garnish only shows in one place. Try to frame the meat in the garnish.

7- Sample not slices uniformly, some larger than others. Looks over-cooked. I'm not a big fan of shredded brisket unless used as a bed for the slices. Burnt ends would have boosted appearance more.

8 - The slices look a bit dry - but I think the chopped/pulled is an interesting twist and it looks good.

8- The brisket has good color and I like the addition of some pulled beef in the box.

Score/Reasons = 8, thicker nonuniform slices, looks very moist.

8 - overall I like the box. The pulled or chopped brisket is appealing. The slices however appear inconsistent in thickness in the photo. Might be photo angle not sue. Cut the slices uniform in thickness and trim off any fat.

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. ;-)
