8 sauce a little gloppy on the money muscle rest of meat looks good. a little more even color on muscle and this box would get a 9 from me.

Photo is a little blurry, but from what I can see this box is a 9.

7 Looks heavy on the sauce, but has potential.

8 - the sliced pieces are uneven if the color is correct (hard to tell with a phono) the meat looks a little yellow which would have brought these down to a 7

9 - nice looking box of pork . . . despite the "soft" pic.

Score 8 - I like the presentation and I like to pull my own to see how well it pulls. Lots of meat, but a little too much sauce after cooking, especially on the pieces to pull.

8 - the box would score higher if it was organized better.

Not a big fan of the square cut pieces of pork, not a natural shape.

7-8 - Sauce is gloopy on the pieces in the back; other pieces are randomly placed;

Score 7. Not a good picture, but not an appealling entry either. I don't care for the m/m "log" and the pieces seem a little stingy.

Nice box of pork. Good bark. Sauce might be a little heavy but still a .... 9

A 6. Looks moist but layout jumbled, colors mixed up - not very eye appealing.

Nice looking meat but maybe a tad over sauced for my taste. Also not a score consideration but I hope there are 6 pieces of those large pulled chunks on the lower left. 8

7 - If the cook wants to give strips, then show enough for all. Additionaly, looks like too much sauce and a bad arrangement.

I score an 8 on appearance. The meat looked very appetizing, but also looked to heavily sauced.

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. ;-)
