8 everything but the amount of sauce looks good. I think there is too much sauce.

8+ - a little too red for my tastes

8 The pieces are about as even in size as you could expect without being pan formed.

8 nice sizing
3/30/2013 05:42:18 am
Too much sauce in my opinion. I'd give it an 8, or possibly a 7.

8. Nice arrangement but it has too much sauce on it. It looks staged. Reduce the sauce after smoking and it would have been a better score.

This is rough for me. The samples look at tad over sauced, might taste more sauce than chicken. Like to see it in person for that. I have never been a fan of samples almost buried by parsley, I like to see the sides of the samples, makes me wonder what the cook is hiding. If over sauced in person '7'

Uniform pieces but way too much sauce......7, maybe an 8 in person.

Score: 9 - Excellent color, near perfect trim, very uniform placement and size, glaze is mouth watering, very appealing box. Excellent job.

This box is packaged in a uniform manner but in my opinion it has to much sauce. So much sauce that I cannot see the quality of the cooking. It has enough pieces and placed nicely but it seems to be drenched in sauce.

Score it a 9!! Great looking box. I am of old school, that if the box is appealing, why score it down on appearance. These look a "little" over sauced, but would love to taste and see if I taste chicken or sauce. Would be great if sauce is crystallized. If sauce over powers meat taste I would score it down a little in other scores.

9 man those look mighty tasty.

Score = 8 - Sauce too heavy and uneven. Meat is nestled down and can't be seen as well.

9 - This presentation is neatly arranged, however do not let the greenery over power the pieces ( i.e. do not the parsley cover the pieces), it give the illusion that something is being hidden.

8. I think maybe the cook got a bit carried away by the garnish. The meat is seriously socketed in there and the eye is drawn to the greenery first. Also, the pieces look really good but pretty heavy on the sauce. Pease remember the idea of the sauce is to enhance the flavor not create it

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. ;-)
