8 char not consistent on each piece. Some are charred and some aren't.

Score: 9 - I anticipate there will be a few who call this box out for boogers or burned spots and some may even decry the lack of uniformity in the trimming. I see none of this as a problem. They look natural to me and where others see issues I see flavor.

Chicken looks moist and tender. Although we are not supposed to judge on garnish, the box looks a little bare 7

8 - Pieces would have gotten a higher score if sauce was applied evenly. Three more pieces would have made the box look full and enhanced the presentation

8 Good potential, but uneven coloring and possibly some burning on the skin.

I would love to try this chicken. Love how the sauce and skin have a crunchy look. Score this box a 9.

8 - Like the arrangement but a little more garnish would not hurt at all. The container looks a little empty. Pieces look good with all portions being equal
3/27/2013 08:56:33 am
score 7, looks unevenly cooked

7. The lumpy glaze takes away a lot of eye appeal even though the spacing, sizing, and arrangement is good.

I would give this box a 6. The chicken is not uniform in shape, the sauce looks a little to dark, and it looks like the meat has a dry look to it.

7 - meat is inconsistently trimmed...each piece is a different shape...some are triangular, some are rectangular & some are oval-ish. This makes for a disorganized & rather jumbled appearance. Colorwise, pieces have a splotchy appearance. Suggest a finishing glaze be applied...it'll mute the splotchiness and brighten the fininshed product.

score 7 , pieces are all different sizes and the color isn't even
3/27/2013 02:57:04 pm
Score 8. I believe this will be excellent tasting chicken, but due to the uneven, blotchy, dark coating the best score I can give it is an eight.

Yum, dark and crusty with a firm set sauce. Looks like chicken.
3/28/2013 07:51:18 pm
7 looks dry and unevenly sauced to me.No wow factor.

6 - the color is not uniform. I don't mind a little carmelization but several pieces look as it area are burnt. The color is not uniform. It appears the skin covers most pieces but the center piece on the right appears not to have the skin covering the complete piece.

7 - Not a very pretty box as far as eveness of sauce and burnt marks. With that said they still look very tasty.

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. ;-)
