Score/Reasons = 8, the meat has just a bit too much sauce. The thighs are not evenly sauced. The lower left thigh is not sauced on the left portion. The other pieces of meat, also, are not sauced evenly, especially on the sides of the thighs.

Score/Reasons = 9, not perfect, but definitely worth a 9 from me!
1/23/2014 03:09:20 am
Well prepared; well presented with uniform pieces with an even glaze. Wonder what that is in the upper right corner of the box? A solid 9.
1/23/2014 03:24:58 am
Score 8. Another picture taken too close to the box, but based on what is available and the heavy sauce this would be my score. ( I believe that boxes, Ribs #181, Pork 173, Ribs 181, along with this box must have been taken by the same person and are not a good representation.)

Score = 9, Nice looking chicken. No major flaws that are enough to score this down.

Score/Comment: 9/One of the more "perfect" specimens I've seen. None are really perfect, but there's just no justifiable reason to score them at anything less! Great job!

9- Nice box. the chief did a great job on the skin. The color is good and the sauce is not too heavy. I gave it a 9 because it popped out at first glance as a drop dead box.

I'll give the slobbers on the box a pass, hoping that you'll clean up before turn in..

8. The color is great. But the sauce is not even, particularly on the lower left piece.
1/26/2014 10:56:29 pm
prolly an 8 .
1/27/2014 05:31:08 am
8 - Nice looking candy thighs. Sauce is missing on half of the front left piece. Looks very good but not a nine.

Score 9 - beautiful mahogany finish; even sauce that looks like it would have a peppery bite. Sauce smeared on right side of box wouldn't count against it, just make sure it's not delivered to the turn-in that way

Score/Reasons = 7 only because it still looks appetizing. Way too much sauce to see what the chicken looks like.

BBQ Critics: Compare your scores with other judges. Have fun and learn for ways to improve your scores. If you are way off from the average of these scores, take a second look and see if there is room for improvement. After reading comments, ask yourself, "Did I score too high? Did I score too low?" Always look for ways to improve.
Comments are closed.
WELCOME to the Judge My Box section on BBQ Critic. This is a great place for competition cooks to submit boxes and get feedback on appearance scores from Certified BBQ Judges. Judges also improve their judging skills by learning from each other. Thanks for stopping by and l hope you find this site to be useful in all your BBQ competition endeavors.

Online BBQ Judge Sign-up
You are REQUIRED to register as a BBQ Critic Online Judge to be allowed to judge boxes on this site. Click here to sign up now.
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. ;-)
