A 9! Good layout, even spacing, color and sizing. Look moist. Yummy.

Score 7. I am not a fan of the "formed: chicken. If this chicken were served in a resturant we would have to wonder "what is it?" The pieces also lack color and appeal.

My first thought was 6 - however, the chicken, oddly shaped, does look very appetizing, good color. THEN, there is the yellow parsley, well, I know we are NOT suppose to judge garnish.... however... it's blinding and stands out like a sore thumb.... I think I will stick with average.

7 Good color, sauce okay but uneven, but round again, I can't get over it.

7 - Muffin pan chicken just doens't look that appetizing to me, and there is a bit too much sauce.

8 - They look like they probably taste good, but I'm no fan of chicken balls, which is what they look like. They're a little shiny for me as well.

Even gobs, maybe too sticky but still worthy of an 8

Light color. The bottom half that was in the tin looks pale and undercooked. Not over sauced.......8

9, Nice and uniform.Great color. Although it is not judged it would be nice to have same colored garnish. Bottom right garnish is lighter, also on the left side.

Color is a little uneven. I'd give this box a 7.

You are REQUIRED to register as a BBQ Critic Online Judge to be allowed to judge boxes on this site. Click here to sign up now.
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. ;-)
