7 - Too dark, too shiny; I don't get any indication that the chicken will taste good!
12/18/2012 12:47:24 am
6 - Difficult to judge due to the dark picture, but these appear to be way over sauced to the point that I'm not looking forward to picking this one up.
12/18/2012 12:56:20 am
8 - very dark color/heavy sauce would need to see in person, could move up or down 1 point
12/18/2012 01:48:38 am

How do I know that's chicken? It could be a box of "foreign objects" as far as I can tell. Stipulating that it IS chicken, and although the pieces' shapes are completely artificial, they're nicely arranged and presented, but they are WAY oversauced. I'll give this a 7.
12/18/2012 05:55:52 am
seven--mainly 'cause the pic is poor
12/18/2012 06:43:57 am
Score 6. KCBS is a meat competition. Too much glaze, cannot see the meat.

Looks really dark from the pic. Too much sauce. Just not appealing to me. I'd give this box a 7 just for the effort put into it..
12/18/2012 08:15:00 am
An 8. Good layout, even sizing and color. Look moist. Black color not appealing.
12/18/2012 10:41:33 am
5 - too dark and saucy
12/18/2012 11:31:43 am

My Score is 7 - The presentation looks lin inced donuts with the sauce puddled on top. It appears something is being hidden.

Nicely sized but to much sauce and very dark. Looks more like a box of frosted donuts. 7

Score: 7; KCBS is a meat competition. This entry is too dark (and shiny) cannot see the meat.
12/20/2012 06:42:16 am
Score 6. What blackened chicken with a glob of black BBQ sauce? Is this really a KCBS entry. If I was served this in a resturant I would return it to the kitchen.

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. ;-)
