I would give this chicken a 7. The color and amount of sauce looks great! It also looks moist. My suggestion would be to trim your chicken into more uniform pieces and make sure you wipe off the sauce drips that are on the inside edges of the box.

Score this box a 7, possibly an 8 in person. The picture quality makes the top 2 pieces look smaller. Otherwise the chicken looks good and isn't over-sauced.

8 the one odd sized piece in the left corner took it down some, along with the smaller pieces on the right. sauce doesn't seem to be consistently applied.

Score: 7 (Above Average) Inconsistent size of pieces, dark color and a bit too much sauce did in this entry for appearance.

8 - color inconsistent - I assume the sauce on the foil is unavoidable and should not be considered.
2/1/2013 12:15:54 am
Score: 8 - Looked good, sauce appears to be uneven.

7. Looks a bit dry and could be higher in person - may be the picture - the right side of the box is in the shadows and looks darker than the left. Suggestion - clean up the sauce on the box before your turn in (I suspect you did after the picture was taken). Judges - there are KCBS contests where foil is legal as a garnish. For example, under the Competitor Series (see King of the Smoker) the organizer can establish foil as the only garnish allowed. Of course Herb already mentioned that we can ignore the foil on this entry.

Kind of hard to judge a box ignoring the foil! Chicken looks over cooked. I give it a 5

Sauce on chicken is a bit gloppy and dark (burnt?) in areas.

7- Haphazard arrangement and spacing just kills the score. I can't tell what the upper left piece is. Is that a big goober in the upper left corner between the box and foil? However, very nice color on some of the chicken and it doesn't appear oversauced.
2/1/2013 01:26:51 pm
I see the comment on ignore the foil. I'll give it a 7. I like the color. A cook will do cup cake pan chicken so they all look the same for a great appearance, I just don't see it in this presentation.

5 I don't think foil is a garnish

Score: 7-8. Sauce is a little gloppy and uneven. The piece in the back on the left is misshapen and looks out place.

8 - Chicken looks very good. I would suggest dipping in the sauce instead of brushing it on to give it a more even appearance. Other than that, nice job!
2/3/2013 08:21:42 am
7 - the pieces do not look appealing. The sizes are not uniform and they look dry. Maybe they look better in person, but the picture does not do them justice.
2/3/2013 02:57:55 pm
D Q, if KCBS - No tin in box.
2/5/2013 02:18:12 am
7 - I would have like to have seen a picture of the box from a slightly overhead view. I cannot see what all the pieces look like from the angle pictured.

NAME FIELD ON FORM:

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. ;-)
