Chicken Box 156

A 7. Good layout. Look moist and even sized. Blotchy "bark" unappealing.

Hmmm -- on one hand I'm going to say that box looks very appetizing. My only concern is there are parts on the extremities that look as if they might have slipped just over the line from carmelized to carbonized. Just barely too. If you'd have knocked off the black parts I'd go 9 easy -- but as it stands I'll go 8. Still I bet that chicken tastes gooooood.

6. - Too much char here.
12/4/2012 06:28:40 am
A little dark 8

Score 9. Now that looks like chicken. Some might think that the dark legs lack appeal, but I think this will be tasty chicken.

7 The char is a bit offputting, but this might taste great. The underlying color is good and it looks moist.

Score 5 - I can only guess it is some weird kind of Blueberry sauce.

5 - The burnt bits just don't do it for me. Does look appetizing at all.

6 - There is gloopy-looking sauce that appears to have been burned, which makes me think the chicken is not well prepared.

Sauce and skin might be a little too crisp/burnt but I like my chicken that way. Give it an 8.

7 - nice looking but a bit rough around the scortched appearing edges.

7 while placement and sizing looks good it appears burnt.

9 - I know some will not like the "burnt" sauce however, sometimes it's the best part. I'd have to taste prior to turning-in my scorecard.

Looks like ordinary backyard chicken. 7

Good looking box of legs. The sauce is a little over carmelized but not enough to keep it from being a .........9 Hope it's not over cooked.

Chicken looks over done and burnt in spots which is not appetizing. Sauce is uneven. This box is a 6 for me.

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. ;-)
