Chicken looks a little overdone even though these's plenty of sauce. I'd score it an 8, possibly a 9 in person.

6 Too much sauce. Two pieces look burned. Not appetizing

8 - A little over sauced; would like to have seen the presentation with 9 pieces of chicken in the box. Something is going on with bottom left piece that I cannot grasp

8 looks good but would have looked better with more separation in the box and i can't tell if the sauce was inconsistently applied or those are lumps on the skin.

8 - Nice looking box. May be higher in person.

Looks like too much BBQ sauce but a very mouth water appeal

9 - nice box. Maybe a bit saucy, but nice anyway.

Sauce is very thick and skin looks wrinkly which means it is probably rubbery and not tender. I'd give this box a 7.

A 9!. Good layout. Look moist. Even color and sizing. Yummy box.
12/18/2012 10:48:06 am
8 - too wet, otherwise nice.

All the pieces are close to the same size. Way to much sauce to be able to judge the meat.......7

8 The meat looked good. I prefer to have the meat with less glaze but overall looked pretty good.The pieces looked to be of consistent size.

Hard to tell for sure because of glare appears to be a few scorch marks 8
12/20/2012 12:35:32 am
Score: 8; Photo looks like there is inconsistant color of the meat. I do not like to see this much glaze.

Score 7. Another entry of formed chicken that doesn't look like chicken. The chicken is also too dark and has way too much sauce to appeal to me.

Online BBQ Judge Sign-up
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. ;-)
