7 a little dark but meat looks like thin fries and burnt ends look very dark. Just a weird looking box!

Score 7. Shredded meat is sparse and shredded too fine. Burn ends are too dark and do not appeal to me.

Just going by the picture this box does nothing for me. Looks to be very little pulled pork and I can't see the burnt ends.6

8 Picture is probably dark. Interesting box the way the pulled is displayed. Chunks have good bark and look appetizing.

score=9 good bark on burnt ends, nice color, looks a bit dry.

Just not appetizing to me. I'd give it a 6 maybe a 7.

7 Need better light to see this one, possibly over done?

7 - No wow factor. Pulled looks like pencils and box is uneven.

Your offerings are sunk down into the garnish, doesn't "show off" your meat. The little gob of pulled does'nt catch my eye but the larger chunks with the nice bark interest me. You might want to fill up the box more.

7 - The "pulled" meat looks like twigs sticking up in the box, and the chunks are so dark you can barely see them. They appear burned. The picture quality is not good, so I'll give the benefit of the doubt on that.

Nice bark on the chunks. Pulled looks dried out. Could use more meat to fill out the box..................7

5 - maybe 6. The pulled pork looks like shoestring potatoes and the chunks are too dark.

9 - Nice looking box

6. Underexposed picture makes this one difficult to judge. Shredded pork appears dry and all I can see of the chunks is dark bark. May be higher or lower in person.

Score 5 - I just don't know what to say or think about this box.

6 - the box looked average because the pork looks dry to me. I had a tough time seeing the cubes/chunks due to lighting/angle.

A 9! Good layout, nice sizing, Yummy looking box.

8- like the arrangement even though it looks like it has been dumped in but it was hard to tell from the angle and darkness of the picture.

6 the meat looks dry. The ends look over cooked and really black.

7 - A better presentation would have yielded a higher score.

8. Arrangement nice. Pieces with bark look burnt. Could be the camera shot.

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. ;-)
