8 - All the color seems to be coming from the sauce, what you can see under the sauce looks kind of pale...makes me think the skin will be a bit flabby.

9 - nice looking box. Pieces are uniform in size, shape and color.

Score 9. Maybe it is caused by our very snowy, cold winter, but this entry makes me hungry for some great BBQ. This is an excellent entry nice even color on the meat and a reasonable amount of sauce. Good Job.

1/30/2014 01:55:04 am
I suppose I could nitpick about size, and sauce being a smidge gloppy, but not gonna.

1/30/2014 04:42:43 am

score/reason very strong 8 possibly 9 in person, great color, good uniformity looks a little blotchy on the sauce, defiantly would like to taste these mmmm

8 - Nice looking box, very good presentation. Would recommend changes to the sauce, it looks very thick like jam. Appears like a cover up and not an enhancement.

Score/Reason: 7/Placement is sloppy and sauce is unevenly applied; lack of attention to detail.

Score/Reasons: 9 - beautiful appearing chicken. It's great to see a box of chicken that obviously was prepared with love and care of a skilled cook. Even better, if doesn't look at all like it had been manufactured, cooked and spit out by a machine. Thanks to the cook for reminding us what REAL chicken looks like.

BBQ Critics: Compare your scores with other judges. If you are way off from the average of the combined scores, take a second look and see if there is room for improvement. After reading comments/scores, ask yourself, "Did I score too high? Did I score too low?" Always look for ways to improve. :-)

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. ;-)
