9 - Looks delicious

Chicken looks ok....pieces aren't exactly uniform. Again, a little too much sauce. 8, possibly a 9 in person.

6 Looks under cooked. Looks like skin will pull off with first bite.

8 this was almost a 9 but i think it needs more color (a little char would have helped) and a little more separation in the box.

8-9 - A little too shiny for me but the chicken looks good and the presentation is good as well.

8. - May be higher in person.
12/18/2012 01:07:26 am
9 - Chicken looks great, sitting a little low in the box.

To me it doesn't appear to have been cooked on a grill maybe in a pan.

9 - nice box. Really nice.
12/18/2012 05:58:20 am
nine--good looking box--maybe the chicken could be sitting higher on the garnish

Chicken is sitting down which makes it hard to see. It appears to be a little light in color which makes it look under cooked. Both those are pretty minor flaws though. I'd give this box an 8.

A 9! Great looking box. Nice placement and layout. Look moist.
12/18/2012 10:49:15 am
8 - a little light and wet
12/18/2012 11:37:37 am

Good even sized pieces. Color a little light. Nice even sauce. Presentation would improve if the chicken was raised up higher in the box but still a.....................9

8 The meat has a consistent color and size. This indicated the cook took time to make the box look good. The color is a bit too red for me.

Nice looking box 9
12/20/2012 12:37:20 am
Score: 9; Nice color and presentation, can really see the meat and not just the sauce.
12/20/2012 06:26:26 am
Score 7. I am not a fan of the "formed" chicken that does not even look like chicken. This entry also has a lot of sauce painted on to it.

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. ;-)
