8 - Sauce is uneven. Is good to see something besides thighs once in a while.
10/25/2013 11:00:31 pm
8 lower right tip darker then the others
10/25/2013 11:33:56 pm
8 - Looks over sauced.

Finally some wings!!! I'm tired of looking at all chicken thighs. Wings excite me. I'd give the box a 9. The wings are evenly suaced and look good enough to eat. Too bad I couldn't taste one.

9 - light seems to be shining in from upper left, so will forgive dark color on bottom right. Looks tasty and tender.

Score/Reasons = 8. Nice looking box. A 9 without the heavy uneven saucing. I would have hidden the front right wing due to the dark char compared to the others..

Score/Reasons = 7, the wings are over sauced and not sauced evenly. There appears to be "globs" of sauce. The right lower wing has what appears to be a burnt tip.
10/26/2013 07:54:40 am
an 8. Good layout. even color, even sized, look moist. But top right piece is partially hidden.

9 good looking box, so nice to see something different
10/26/2013 10:51:14 am
Score 9 - Brave enough to send something other than thighs. Good presentation as well.

Score = 8, Nice looking wings. The only issue I can see is the wing on the lower right looks a little dark on the tip of the wing.

Score this box a 9.
10/27/2013 06:16:01 am
Score 8. This entry could easily have been a nine and the only reason I deducted a point was due to the sauce pooled in the middle of the wing.
10/27/2013 08:48:56 am
8 maybe 9 in person. great color equal in size nice job
10/27/2013 09:40:38 am
I give this box an 8. Some color variation on the meat. Box is neat.

Score/Reasons: 8 - Thank you for having the courage to tackle wings for your entry. This is a nice looking box. The pieces appear "natural" and not manufactured perfection, with a nice looking sauce. The right front piece appears scortched/burnt. But for that, this would have received a 9 from me.

I would score this box a 9. Looks wonderful!
10/28/2013 01:01:08 am
9 - I like the color and presentation. I would like to sample this box.

Score: 9 - Nice presentation and I like the fact that the competitor went with wings; a nice change from beasts/thighs. Overall appearance very well done.
10/28/2013 01:52:51 am
score/reasons = 9
10/28/2013 04:48:10 am
8 - Don't see wings at every contest. These are nice looking. The sauce is unevenly applied, but just barely. Very Good Box.
10/28/2013 05:11:57 am
9 - Excellent color. Looks Moist.

Score/Reasons: 9 While this is an unusual choice for chicken, it is a very pretty box; well placed wings with nice coloration and consistency.

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. ;-)
