8 the meat looks good enough to eat. I think it would look better with the burnt ends in the front of the box.

I would give this an 8 .. I would like to see a bit more darker bark. Also the spacing at the top could be a bit more uniform. All in all its a good looking box and I would love to take a taste

Score/Reasons = 8. This is a FULL box! The meat appears to be moist and has a nice color. The arrangement of the slices is consistent and overall balanced within the box. The color from the juice/sauce is uneven preventing a score of 9. However, in person this very well might be scored up from my initial 8.

Score 9 The slices appear moist and fairly evenly cut. There is just enough glaze on the pieces. The burnt ends look inviting

score / reason very strong 8, the sauce spatters or drippings on the sides of the box are distracting for me suggestion close detail to a clean box will get you that 9

Score/Reasons = 9, look moist and end look good. The only thing is there is some fat on the bottom of the slice. This does not bother me, I like the fat, but it may bother some judges

9 - could be a dry spot in front with no juice however, doubt goes to the cook!
3/2/2015 04:02:45 pm
Score 9. This brisket appears to be an excellent entry. I can only hope that the sauce that was added has not changed the great taste of brisket.

8....Nice color on the Burnt Ends. Sloppy sauce on the slices. The specks in the sauce takes away from the appearance.

Nice full box of moist looking meat. If the box makes it to the table with that sauce on the edges it's going to cost you a point....

Score 9 Samples look moist. Nice uniformity in slices. Burnt ends look very appetizing.

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. ;-)
