7 - slices too pale - too much contrast between the different sections.

Score/Reasons = 6, lots of problems with the meat in this box. Looks dry, uneven coloration, debris on the face of the slices.

8 - Box needs more uniformity - especially the burnt ends. It looks like they were just thrown in there.

7. Need to work on a more uniform presentation of slices, sauce, and burnt ends.

Score/Reasons: 6; Appears to be way over-cooked and dried out. To give credit though, the box is very nicely laid out.

Score/reasons = 8/Nice placement, burnt ends look good, but meat looks a little dry, although it could entirely be the picture.

8 - The slices are a 7. Grey meat is not appealing. The burnt ends are a 9. They look tasty. So the average is an 8.

Score/Reasons: 8 - nice looking box, but (maybe it's just the photo) it doesn't "pop" to me.

7 - Cut marks, smudges, uneven slices(right-ends), and BE's thrown in box.

7 - Good Entry. Including burnt ends show confidence in your product, and they look very tasty. The slices look a little dry, some thin consistent saucing would have scored a little higher. It also appears as though there is some debris on the presenting slice. A cleaner presentation would have also improved the score.

score / reason 8 slices look evenly cut and color looks good, burnt ends look UN-uniform in size and just thrown in, no uniformity in the arrangement and size of burnt ends.Slices could be a little straighter on the right side.

Score/Reason = 7. The overall arrangement is above average, The cubes appear to be moist and look like they would be tender. The slices are even, but look slightly dry. The splotch of seasoning on the left side of the leading slice is distracting.
9/28/2014 03:37:29 pm
7 - burnt ends look good but the arrangement is sloppy.

Score/Reasons = 9, Good looking box. Maybe the only thing is arrange the burnt ends better. The way they are now, the ends are placed in the box in no order.

7...meat looks pale and dry. Sauce on slices is uneven and sloppy. Back slice doesn't have sauce. Burnt ends looks over cooked.

8- Slices look nicely cut and uniform; sloppy saucing job, uneven application.Front slice is splotchy and last slice appears to have no sauce at all.

Score/Reasons = 8, au jus needs to be strained or evened out to eliminate the meat goobers such as those splashed across the front slice.
9/30/2014 08:01:38 am
Appearance 7- Fairly good brisket box. Burnt ends look alittle dry. If your going to use the meat juice, strain it first. Slices in the pic also look alittle dry.
10/2/2014 09:38:54 am
The brisket looks dry and the color on the burnt ends looks good. 7 or 8
10/3/2014 08:11:41 am
Score 6 The burnt ends look appealing, but the slices look they could be a little dry. Also, the color of the slices take away from the appeal of the box. They just look bland.
10/3/2014 09:43:36 am
Score/Reasons = 7, dry looking slices. Blotches of sauce. Not appealing.

7- appearance of slices looks dry- first slice has black specs that detract- and burnt ends are many and uneven in size.

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. ;-)
