8 - nice presentation, would have been a 9 if all the pieces were uniform in size. Top left piece looks quite a bit smaller than the others.

9 looks weird to me but that doesn't mean it looks bad. Will this ever be considered sculpted?

9 - Chicken is uniform and an unique arrangement. The presentation makes you want to take a bit.

Score/Reasons = 8, the appearance of the "meat" is pretty good, but the arrangement leaves something to be desired.

Score/Reasons = 9, these lolly pops look pretty. The back left legs appears to be quite a bit smaller the the others. This may be due to the angle of the picture.

8.....A lot of work and preparation went into this box. Meat looks overcooked and dry. Looks burnt around the edges.

Score/Reasons: 9; Pluses: Beautifully trimmed, sauced & presented. Minuses; Sauce/color is slightly uneven in places. Not taking off for that.
2/20/2014 08:59:35 am
Score 8. I love the look of frenched legs. The reason for the point deduction is the dark and heavy/thick coating on the legs.
2/20/2014 11:55:51 pm
This is a very unique box. The undesirable parts of the chix leg have been removed. Great. Because of the uniqueness, uniformity in leg sizes, and presentation. (9) Excellent

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. ;-)
