8 - Good placement in the box overall (don't miss the garnish), but the chunks are a little messy. Not sure about the color, but that could be the picture!

8 - Would like to see the slices down the middle a more even size. Burnt ends on right side uniformly placed, but those on left look like they were just tossed in as an afterthought.

Nice looking presentation. I don't know what the spots in the lower part of the box are but otherwise it looks tasty to me. 9

8. Looks great except for the heavy hand with the sauce.

Score 7. I don't like the color and the hugh amount of sauce that was "poured" over the pork.

I'm sure there will be lot's of comments on the lack of garnish for this box, but there shouldn't be. Garnish is optional and is not to be judged. That said this box shows it isn't needed. The only negative I can see is that the pork looks over sauced or even greasy. This might be from the lighting in the photo. I'd give this a box a 9.

8 - Sauce everywhere... Could be a DQ as some of the sauce could be pooled on the bottom.

9! Money's scale looks good and good looking bark, photo appears to have sauce not quite evenly spread on some of the pieces. Look moist. Finally someone with the guts to leave out the garnish'

Looks succulent. Moist. Nice size pieces. I've give it an 8

It's a meat contest, pouring sauce all over it doesn't

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. ;-)
