7,sauce is kinda uneven and if their gonna trim their pieces they should be more even in size. Personally I prefer a more natural looking thigh myself.

Score/Reasons = 6 Size, shape and color are inconsistant. The skin looks undercooked and potentially rubbery, more so on bottom left piece. Sauce application and/or final spritz splashed onto sides of box.
9/20/2013 12:17:36 am
Nice color on the meat. Possibly use a little more parsley to prevent staining on the Styrofoam tray.
9/20/2013 12:34:55 am
Score 8. I want to taste these. But the square shapes turn me off.
9/20/2013 01:19:30 am
Score/Reasons = 7. piece are not uniform in size. Skin does not look crispy. Too many black specks in sauce. Good color on sauce

Score/Reasons =7, possibly 8 in person. Too much variation in color, some pieces had more char than others, saucing need a bit more care.
9/20/2013 03:07:20 am
Clean, neat, great color. Not too much parsley but enough to make the box attractive. Give it an 8.
9/20/2013 03:08:43 am

9/20/2013 03:30:32 am

Score/Reasons = 8, and I was swaying between 7 & 8. Looking at the sides, some pieces look under cooked. I don't like the square shape of the pieces, though didn't factor that into my score..

7 - looks moist, but not feeling any anticipation due to the specs and variation of color and possible burnt end of top center piece.

Score/Reasons: 7 - Average looking, maybe slightly better. Blotchy sauce, sauce very uneven from one piece to another; exposed skin at the edges of several pieces appear to be flabby and un-crispy If that's a word).

Score = 8, color, sauce and size are a little uneven.
9/21/2013 11:26:36 am
7 - Uneven, gloppy sauce...even the greens are sauced. All the thigh bones in the box are presented vertical however, the lower right thigh's bone goes left to right.

score/reason 7 Sauce look very uneven and slightly burnt, Bottom Right piece should be turned 1/4 so all bones are facing the same direction, and pieces could be a little more uniform in size.

7 - Even though the product looks good, the lack of organization and neatness detracts from what could be a higher score.

Score/Reasons = 8 - The meat, with the carmelazation looks good. The thing that rated this down from a 9, is the lack of uniformity of the pieces. The upper center piece just look too rectangular compared to the others.

I would give this box an 8. Chicken looks cooked and sauced great!

Score: 7 The uneven finish is a bit unappealing and the box just seems out of proportion.
9/23/2013 11:35:14 am
Score 8. This entry would score a nine if the meat, sauce and color was more even through out.

7....Blotchy color and sauce. Looks under cooked. Different size pieces.
9/24/2013 01:41:19 am
8 - Solid chicken box. Size and trimming look nice. Sauce is consistent, the color is a little uneven, but it may be just the photo. Nice job.

Score: 8. The meat looks very appetizing but in the picture it looks like just a little too much sauce. It also looks like the sauce got onto the box and garnish.
9/28/2013 05:05:51 pm

10/2/2013 12:38:07 pm

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. ;-)
