Presentation is so-so. Looks to be some fatty pieces but pork does look okay. Score it a 7, maybe 8 in person.

6 Not very well organized. Thrown in box. No variety of cuts.

7 looks like a pile of pulled pork. not bad but nothing special either.

9. Nothing wrong with pulled all by itself and this looks appealing.

This box shows that just one type of pork can look great. A definite 9.

7 Somewhat of a scattered look, but looks moist and tender.

9- this is the type of box I love. The meat looks juicy, the color is rich and nice, the box is filled (not overfilled) and, unlike some judges, I like that there's only one type of pork in this box. By the time the pork category comes around I don't usually want to eat three-four pieces of pork just because the entrant included all of the eligible pork cuts (pulled, chopped, sliced, or diced).

9 - nice box of pork. The "picky" me says it could be a bt more tidy, but that's nit-picking.

Score 8 - I would like to have seen more varieties of cuts, but believe the taste could very well be a 9.

Nice full box of pork,looks pretty moist, but nothing really says woohoo. More bark, and better alighnment of chunks could help.

9 - Though I prefer to see a mix of chunks, pulled, etc., the meat is well placed and looks really good. Nice shine, looks moist but not over-sauced. I would definitely eat this BBQ.

Score 9. Excellent entry. Nice mix of the meat and the bark giving this bos a nice contrast. Nicely filled box with what appears to be very moist pork.

An 8. Looks moist and just enough bark to make my mouth water.

Excellent. Nothing fancy or weird. Just great looking pork. I also am a fan of a good simple garnish that doesn't come up with the meat. Best looking pork I've seen in a bit. 9

That's a 9!!! I'm hungry....

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. ;-)
