7 - Sauce is uneven and skin has pulled back from some of the pieces. While I personally think that lollipop chicken is a form of sculpted meat, there is nothing that says they can't do it.

6 - Off-color, gloppy uneven sauce/jelly and spacing, bones look unappetizing.

Lolipop legs. Too bad the cook didn't use aluminium foil on the exposed leg bones as they look burnt. Size fairly even and not over sauced. Very shiny and appetizing. I'd give the box an 8 because the leg bones are burnt

Score - 8. Very unique presentation! The exposed bones probably should have been wrapped, or wrapped longer if already wrapped. Looks good!

6 - liked the uniformity, but hated everything else.

7. I guess these are called Lollipops? I just think the bones are not appealing looking.

Score/Reasons = 8, looks moist and very appetizing. Different than the usual thighs. Skin should cover the meat and sauce could be spread more evenly, but still looks dad-gum good!

8 - very creative, looks tasty, just those darn dark spots otherwise would be an easy 9

Score/Reasons = 6, lollipops are a neat way to present legs, but in this case, these legs are not very appetizing because the bones are burnt.. This is caused not wrapping the bones. The meat pops are not the same size, it appears some on the meat shrunk more than others.

a 9! Great layout. Even color and sizing. Good spacing. Look moist.

9 good looking box and again something different

Score = 7, Sauce and color is uneven. The color is little too light and makes the chicken appear undercooked. The skin is also pulling back on a few of the drums which is unappealing as well.

7, possibly an 8 in person.
10/27/2013 06:13:23 am
Score 9. Wonderful looking chicken. Good color, nicely sauced. This is a box that I would really like to taste.
10/27/2013 08:46:51 am
6 maybe 7 in person. lollipop looks great light and blotchy in color
10/27/2013 09:43:29 am
I give this box a 7. Color is not very good and varies. Meat does not look to have any color prior to thesauce going on. Skin has pulled back on a couple of pieces, Jus tnot very appelaing.

Score/Reasons: 7 maybe 8 in person. Skin shrinking back markedly and irregularly piece-to-piece. Sauce irrelgularly applied; thankfully, the sauce is nicely done and not thick & gloppy.

I would score this box a 7. Due to the color of the meat, skin peeling back on the chicken, and bone.
10/28/2013 01:03:27 am
7 - Coloring is pale, skin looks uneven, a few dark spots.

Scored an 8 : Nice look to the entry, but the sauce looks a bit uneven on the meat.
10/28/2013 04:51:49 am
8 - Hard to beat chicken with handles! Color is uneven, might be grill marks or the sauce is thicker in places. Great looking box.
10/28/2013 05:16:01 am
8... maybe 7. Color is a bit pale and the uneven treatment of the skin on the meat end is a bit haphazard.
Deb KCBS MCBJ/CTC

Score/Reasons: 8 While the chicken legs are very consistent in size, the coloration is not. However, they do still appear appetizing and juicy. Very good, but could be improved.

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. ;-)
