Pieces are a little uneven and way too much sauce. 7, possibly an 8 in person.

Score 8, Sauce is uneven and size of the pieces is different as well. They way the pieces are arranges emphasizes this difference. Laying them out largest to smallest would be more pleasing to the eye.

7. Even up the color and a little less sauce gets this box closer to a 9.

Really big pieces. Variation in size quite noticeable. The reason this matters is it shows the cooks ability and skill level in choosing,trimming, and cooking their product.

8 Sizes not even, color good, may be heavy on the sauce.

Chicken not uniform, colors little different, sauce not equal on all sides.

7 too much sauce, chicken is a little sloppy in the box with uneven sizes. That said i do like that I can tell that it is thighs and not cupcake formed meat.

8 - great looking chicken but be more carefull when placing in the box. Some sauce on the side.
4/15/2013 02:43:58 pm
cbj/comp cook, 7 possible 8 in person, i can't stop looking at that 1 big piece in the front row, if it wer'nt for that this could possibly be a 9

9 - I like the look of the meat except for the about of glaze. I think there is too much glaze. I don't feel this would have me score this box an 8.

Score: 8 - Nice color, arrangement is uniform, size of the pieces are slightly different and that throws off the symetry, a little too much sauce for my liking but overall a tempting looking box.
4/17/2013 01:05:02 pm
6 sauce looks not uniform and neither is the size

7 or 8 at best. The box is kinda sloppy with the sauce drops and smears. The cook tried to wipe up but you can still get the overall impression its sloppy. And wow is this oversauced! Cant see the chicken for the sauce.

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. ;-)
