Score = 7, these look more like meat balls than chicken thighs. They do not look very appetizing to me at all.

4 - what part of the chicken is round?

Score 7. No appeal. Is this chicken or meatball? Looks too "formed" to appeal to me.

7 Is this a muffin tin product? Looks like meatballs, not chicken, and the color is off putting.

6 Cannot tell if this is chicken or meatballs of some type. Needs more product in box to fill out box. Other than that I like the overall color of the chicken.

6 - unatural color and unaturally round shape.
4/15/2013 02:52:26 pm
cbj/comp cook, 7 possible 8 in person, i prefer a more natural looking piece of chicken.

8 The skin's finish is a bit off-putting. Its pretty uneven and a bit too yellow. I dont judge down for it because I figure its the cook's intent but I dont like the look of what one judge at my last contest calls "chicken balls". Let a thigh be a thigh. I think a lot of judges will score you down more for the roundness than uneven sizes.

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. ;-)
