8 skin has differing grill marks (brown color). Gives the appearance that pieces are done differently. All pieces should have the same appearance.

Uneven pieces and sauce looks weird. Still would like to try them as there's not too much sauce....8.

Score = 8, Color is uneven. Some pieces look like they are more done (i.e. darker) than other pieces.

Appearance - 6. If samples were more evenly sized and evenly browned, score would increase.

6 Not appealing, color uneven, different shapes (sizes) detract quite a bit.

8 The streak down the middle throws me off. Would have looked better setting the glaze without the extra bit on top.

Score 8 - Nice color, pieces are arranged in a uniform way, trim job is a bit off for several pieces. Nice looking box.

a generous 8 The pieces are seriously unevenly done and I would be cautious about checking the juices on these to be sure they were cooked thru. While I am not one to pick apart a chicken box for uneven shape and size of pieces this one does catch your eye with the variations. Experiment with the placement and rotation a bit.

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. ;-)
