7 - Pieces not well trimmed. Sauced uneven.
6/3/2013 12:17:59 am
8. Chicken is a little uneven in size and sauce is gloppy on the two pieces on the bottom left....otherwise could have been a 9.

9 - very nice color . . . couldn't wait to take a bit out of this entry

Maybe it's just the pic but the sauce looks a little unevenly applied. I'd give it an 8, but it may be a 9 in person.

8 sizing a bit off, looks like to much sauce on a couple pieces

Score = 8, Size, color, shape are uneven. Just makes the box look a little sloppy.

Score/Reasons = 7, above average. Nice color. Skin a bit uneven on some of the pieces.
6/3/2013 02:35:58 am
Score 9. Reason: very simply this is nice chicken with great color, even pieces, and a nice glaze on the sauce.

Score/Reasons = 8, This is an example of differing sizes and shapes being a bit too much.

6/3/2013 02:59:14 am

8 pieces don't look uniform in size and appearance. yep, that's pretty picky but we are talking excellent vs. very good!

Back two pieces are visually larger than the other 4. Color and texture are excellent, I want to bite one of the front four.
6/3/2013 05:11:20 am
7 - Nice color but sauce looks "gloppy" . Back left piece looks dry.
Pete - KCBS

9 - this is an appealing and mouth-watering box of chicken. Looks like actual pieces of chicken, not overly manipulated or oddly shaped.
6/3/2013 05:51:47 am
I give those an 8, only because the sauce doesn't appear even to me, but could be the photo.

Score/Reasons = 8, great color but the sauce appears a little gloppy and the thighs are of various sizes and shapes. It's a minor detractor but this is a competitve analysis.
Tom - CBJ w/ KCBS, MBN, NCPC & comp cook

Score/Reasons = 8, looks pretty good, but maybe a wee bit dry (especially the back left thigh). Could be trimmed better and sauce could be spread more evenly, but still looks very appetizing.
6/3/2013 12:11:43 pm
7. Nice layout, good even color, look moist. They are not similar in shape and give the box a jumbled appearance.

score/reason 8 color looks good, sauce looks uneven, and chicken could be more uniform in size

Score/Reasons = ,7, the red color gives the chicken, to me, an unappetizing look. Also, the skin on the left front piece looks at if it came off and was replaced. It is not very good looking. Also, the chicken looks dry.
6/4/2013 04:23:30 am
Score/Reason = 8, looks pretty good. I'm stuck between 7 and 8 so I went with 8. Nice color.

8, Nice color and glaze. Need more uniformity.
6/4/2013 05:06:53 am
7 - No wow factor and they need trimming.
6/4/2013 04:11:47 pm
8 - uniform presentation, product looks dry (could be quality of photo)

Score/Reasons: 8. Meat should be trimmed better.
6/5/2013 12:12:22 pm

Glenn - KCBS CBJ, CTC

7 - The chicken itself looks like it could be tasty but the pieces look a little "rough". Not very pretty.

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. ;-)
