Uneven pieces, Bottom right piece sticks out like a sore thumb. Be careful with the sauce so it doesn't get on the garnish. Possibly over-done. High 7.

6 - Does look appetizing at all. Way too dark.

7 - bottom right thigh looks like it was a last minute addition, not the same level of caramelization as the other 5. While we don't judge garnish, having it smeared with sauce is not appealing.

Color is a little dark and also uneven. The piece in the lower right corner is much lighter than the rest. Also the sauce is very uneven as well. I'd give this box a 7.

Score - 9 I like my chicken cooked, thank you. Probably too much sauce and only 6 pieces, but I want to taste this one.

Looks like burnt skin. Sloppy uneven sauce. Sauce on the garnish. Bottom right piece looks completely different from the others. Pieces to big for the box.....5

7,, uneven color, uneven sauce coverage as well as rub coating very heavy (which would overpower the meat) not supposed to judge garnish but it would look more appealing if garnish was evenly placed to showcase meat rather the eye being drawn to the imperfection of its mis-spacing on top right hand side

5 - Sloppy sauce, bad color, looks gritty...TC, do I have to taste this?

Score: 7 - Box looks overstuffed, sauce is gloppy, chicken pieces are uneven, color is okay but hidden by the sauce. Not an appealing box for me.

Very dark, except the one piece, and really large also.

7. Sauce looks a bit heavy and dark. Looks like piece to the right was jostled and may have bounced off the lid? Or was the sauce applied uneven? Did not affect my score.

Looks kinda dark. And some sauce on the green 8

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. ;-)
