Pork Box 125

Score 9 - This is certainly easy to identify, thus marked, maybe; however, I'm giving it a 9 for creativity. Nothing makes me think the taste will be special, but the cooker respects the appearance score.

7 - The meat in the center of the box appears to have loosely placed in the box, almost thrown in. The chunks around the outside aren't evenly placed, giving a haphazard appearance.

8 - Meat looks pretty good, but looks like it was just tossed into the box. All jumbled.

Very good looking box. I like the presentation and the color and not too much sauce. 9

9. Nice box. Good looking bark. Hope the smaller chunks will not be dry.

Score 8. While the meat looks great the appearence score suffers due to the lack of care when the box was assembled. Cooks need to take more care placing the meat, both the burnt ends and the pulled, and they will recieve better scores.

Good looking pork box. The only negatives I see are that the chunks with bark have a little uneven coloring, but that could be from the lighting in the photo. Also I think there could be a little more pulled pork in the middle so that it looks fuller and that you can't see the lettuce underneath. Even with those minor details this box gets a 9 from me.

9 pork s looks moist and tender. Box is balanced with nice pulled and plenty of bark for judges to taste

Juicy looking. Nice arrangement in the box. Like the contrast of the bunt ends with the pulled portions. I'd give it a 9.

Looks ok but little cut pieces don't really interest me much.

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. ;-)
