7 - Meat is uneven and just looks sloppy. I know we don't judge the smoke ring or lack thereof, but this smoke ring looks painted on and actually takes away from the appearance score.

I would rate this a 7. A bit uneven in color

Score = 8, front slice looks like it has some smudges of sauce on it. Left edge of the slices looks like they were just broke apart rather than cut. That edge looks ragged. The neater, the cleaner the higher score will be.

8. Good layout, nice arrangement. Look moist. However, middle slice is out of alignment a tad.

8 - Very good entry. Bark is dark and inviting. The slices are very close in size and appearance. The moisture looks okay, but appearance would have been improved with sheen from a thin coating of sauce. This is a very good entry.

Score/Reasons = 7. You have some nice color to the bark. That first piece looks a bit dry and not presented at its best angle. A 90 degree cut against the grain will give a better bite. This looks a bit off.

Score/Reasons = 7, looks a bit dry and ragged cuts. still looks kinda appetizing, even with the black bark on some slices.

7 - First piece looks dry, even-up the slices, and remove the goobers.

7 Looks overcooked and crumbly. Slices should be uniform. The top slice has a completely different grain and less bark than the others. Looks like it could be tasty as it does look moist...

Score = 7 (possibly an 8 in person)

7-slices need to be more uniform

8 - Slices are uniform in size, the dark rim on top adds to appearance, but first slice takes away from the rest. It's not showing the same dark rim as the other slices, looks dry, and looks to be turned backward from the rest.

9 - Great box of brisket. Nice moist appearance.

Score/Reasons = 6, dry looking and cut unevenly.

8 - The brisket looks like it has good flavor - which makes me want to snatch a piece - but the front piece (turned the opposite way of the others?) looks like it crumbled off at the bottom - which makes me think it's a bit over done.

Little raggedy around the edges but looks good enough to eat.

7- Edges look rough; could try for neater slices and more uniformity in the size and shape of the brisket slices. The front slice appears dry.

Score/Reasons = 8 Nicely arranged box

7 - meat itself looks very nice, however, the trim work on the meat is very jagged and sloppy. I think you need a new knife or sharpen the one you use.

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. ;-)
