This is too much chicken for this box, looks over crowded. The color is ice, but l would like to see more work to get the sizes closer, I give this one an 8.

8 - Nice box. Color is even and does not appear to be overly sauced. A couple of trimming issues, but fairly uniform in size.

9 like the color, size

Score 8. More is not always better. This box looks crowded and by placing nine pieces in the box it allows for a judge to compare more pieces, Not a necessary risk.

Score = 8; Middle piece has small flap of skin sticking out on lower right hand corner. Pieces could be trimmed to be a little more uniform. Sauce looks too heavy and somewhat uneven. Color is uneven. These are very minor details, fix them and the box should be a 9 all day long.

Score/Reasons = 8, chicken looks a little under.Chicken on bottom left looks perfect, other look to have a rubbery skin and not crispy.

9??? Pieces look good, nice color. My question is: Can you close the lid? If not, rearrange the pieces so you can or leave some of them out.

This might be a case of too much of a..thing. By having that many pieces it highlights the differences. Sauce application is pretty good.

Score/Reasons = 8, may be a 9 in person; sauce appears too heavy in spots.

an 8. Good layout, even color and look moist. However the lower right piece is more triangular than rectangular. If it had been rotated 180 degrees it would have been a mirror image to the upper left one ( and therefore part of a pattern) and I would have scored it higher.

9 - Good looking box

Score/Reasons = 8, color is too orange, but that might just be the photo, uneven coloration, bits of something on the tops of a couple thighs (left middle, center middle, center top).

8 - WOW ! Way to fill up a box. Although samples look moist and delicious, they are not uniform in size or trimmed to look the same.

8 Chicken looks great. A suggestion would be to concentrate on the details of trimming and placing the meat in the box.

Score/Reasons = 7, there are simply too many thighs in this box which makes the box crowded. The sauce is also applied unevenly.

This is a confident cook. 9 Pieces of very good looking chicken. Not too much sauce. With the exception of a few minor details, I'd give this box a 9

Score/Reasons = 8, maybe a 9 in person - looks moist, full box, work on trimming to uniform shape and size

Nice uniform, well cooked pieces with good color. Only criticism is the box is overfilled. An 8.

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. ;-)
