8 - Would be a 9 if the color were more even among the pieces. May be a 9 in person.

7. They look moist and are well arranged but the two on the back row right are smaller and darker than the other four.

8 Nice color, sauce about right, the upper right corner smaller piece throws it off a bit.

9 - nice looking chicken. Saucey, but not too saucey.
3/9/2013 01:49:52 am
Give this box of chicken a 9. The pieces are even, good placement and borderline sauce. Good job!

7.......Different size pieces. Uneven goopy sauce. The top right piece is really distracting.

8 due to unmatched size , color looks good as well as a nice gloss. Even those garnish is not to effect the score it does look nice and makes the chicken show nicely

9 - I am not sure if it is the camera angle that is causing the piece in the upper right hand corner to look small than the rest however it is a nice box.

Score = 7, Sauce and color is uneven. These are above average, but I can't say that they are very good.

Please show the box as it would be in a contest, if I was looking from the front I maybe would not have noticed how different the back pieces were in size.

Looks almost perfect, but I'd give it an 8 because all of the samples don't look to be the same size.
3/10/2013 01:02:07 pm
8 - looks good - not a fan of the artificial rolled pieces.
Jim H - CBJ SBN/KCBS

Score/Reasons: 9/Good color, not too much sauce; makes me want to at least try it.

9 - the color looks good. The meat shows just enough caramelization. Looks good.

8 - the exposed bone(s) on the left detracts from the box. The eye is drawn to the bones.

6 - the bright red color is not appetizing. It is not a natural color.

8 - the meat looks ok. Brisket is hard to present to get a WOW Factor.
3/11/2013 06:14:58 am
I would score this box an 8. They only reason for not scoring a 9 would be the piece of chicken on the top right not being as uniform as the other pieces.

SCORE/REASONS: 7 - Above average chicken. Some thighs are smaller than others; sauce is a little thick in a few places.
3/17/2013 01:48:36 am
9 - the only comment would be that the piece in the upper right hand corner is a little smaller than the rest but that DOES NOT hurt this box one bit. The cook took his/her time making sure they were very similar and look great.

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. ;-)
