8 sauce application a little inconsistent and kind of heavy on some, sizes differ a little but looks good enough to eat!

8 - The piece on the left front is way too shiny (too much sauce) and the poor piece in the back center is dwarfed by the others. Otherwise, the chicken looks like it would be good!
12/18/2012 12:50:00 am
7 - A bit blotchy and sauced unevenly. Still want to taste one!
12/18/2012 12:59:49 am
6 - Sauce is not even, skin uneven, sauce on the box, thighs too big for box.

9 - This is what chicken thighs look like. Nice box, maybe a bit saucy, but nice nevertheless.

Sauce and color are kind of uneven. I'd give this box a 7.

Very sloppy presentation. Meat has good color is about the only positive. Over sauced. Looks like the pieces were thrown in the box.........6

8 - the color looks OK but does not appear consistent on the top. Appears the color is lighter in some areas and darker in others.

Maybe a little heavy on the sauce 8

Score: 8; Nice color, a bit too much glaze, needs to work on box presentation.
12/20/2012 06:39:01 am
Score 7. The pieces are too uneven in size, are too dark, and are oversauced.

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. ;-)
