7, uneven color, really dark/black this usually indicates a Charred taste. Looks like a little heavy handed with the rub and it's unevenly coated, appears that the sugar in the rub turned dark.

Under KCBS rules I would ask the table captain to call the contest rep over for a ruling. This box contains an illegal foreign object (foil) and should be disqualified.

This box is not very appealing. Placement is bad and another row would have helped. The chicken looks more like meatballs. 6

8 - nice looking box of barbecued chicken. Little-to-no sauce is fine with me. At least judges will be able to taste the meat.

6. Pieces appear dry and a bit unevenly colored. Can't wait to see how many judges criticize the foil (I hope none!).

6 - looks dry and overdone - wouldn't eat it at a free buffet.

DQ for foil. Take away the foil and I give it a 5. This looks like something the kids would do in the back yard.

Score = 8: Score is based off KCBS, but this is not a KCBS entry and I'm not aware of MBN or other scoring systems. Color on the chicken is a little uneven.

Nice job of trimming your pieces. But they look overcooked and dry.

SCORE/REASONS: 9. The image is blurry so I will give benefit of the doubt and say this chicken looks mighty tasty -- as if the pitmaster actually decided to impart some smoke to the otherwise commonplace thighs -- something I heartily applaud.

7 - and that was generous. Chicken pieces look good and are proportional but seem dry and uninviting. Add some kind of garnish and you would have received a better score.

Score/Reasons: 8/Nice looking chicken but doesn't say "eat me," it only says, "when you're hungry, you should eat me!"

5 - the thighs appear to be dry and the rub appears to be a little burnt. Also the pieces look puny in the box without green.

8 - Don't look bad, nothing really catches my eye. I will give the cook the chance

8 It appears to me as though the skin is going to be good, but crisp and tough.

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. ;-)
