Blotchey irregular pieces that look like they could be raw with sauce on them. Chicken on right looks much nicer. Below average 5

8. I love the color. It looks like chicken. And even though i'm not a fan of complete uniformity, these are just too odd sized for a 9.

7 - pale and uneven

Score 8. Nice entry and the reason for the eight is the uneven sauce and color on the left and right side of the box.

Appearance - High 7. Overall good looking presentation. If sauce was a little more even, it would be an 8.

8. Possibly a 9 in person. Color is a little too far off among the pieces.

Nice box of chicken. Size and color are real good. Not over sauced and texture looks inviting.

7 - glaze looks unevenly applied - thicker on left pieces than right pieces.

cbj/comp cook,8 sauce looks fairly uneven in this pic could be a 9 in person tho.

score/ reason 7 uneven sizes, sauce uneven as well

8 Good looking box. If it were more evenly sauced it would make it more desirable. A little work on the trimming would help also.

9 - The lighting may be the reason the chicken on the left side of the box looks lighter than those on the right. Overall, I like the look, especially the darker carmelization areas on the meat.

Score: 8 - Color is nice but a little uneven, arrangement is uniform, trim job is good, a little more sauce on the right side than on the left but overall a nice looking box.

8, good color, pieces are not uniform

8 The chicken looks ok but the color varies quite a bit between pieces. Also, the pieces are nestled down into the garnish a bit too much. Cooks need to remember that the garnish isn't judged so try not to put it too much to forefront and cover the meat that is being judged.

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. ;-)
