Pork looks appetizing but the presentation is poor. Good looking bark and meat looks moist so I'll give it an 8.

7 Meat looks appetizing, but garnish is too thin. Meat should be raised up more in the box. Hard one to judge.

Score 7: Not a very attractive or appealing arangement in the box; irregular sized and arranged pieces, looks greasy.

8 - the pulled pork appears to be a little dry. The ends should be more consistent is size. Overall, look pretty good.

8 Looks good, moist, generous sampling, variety.

6 - this box reminds me of a bad Bridge (the card game) hand...aces and spaces. The MM scattered around the edges is offputting to my eye.

Not appealing to me, 6.

Nice looking pork box. Might look better with more chunks around the pulled. A solid ring of chunks would look awesome. I'd give this an 8.

Torn on this one. Pulled pork looks moist and enticing. The burnt ends size, cut, and placement don't add to the appeal. I'd say a 7.
1/16/2013 05:58:25 am
pork looks very good, juicy etc. but the box builder is trying too hard to be artsy fartsy---seven and the meat LOOKS like a ten

8. Pork looks moist. Scattered about. Perhaps split up the large gathering of chunks in the front to better space the chunks around the box.

Beautiful, glistening, very light sauce, perfect bark, meat-focused presentation - easy 9.

I really like this box. I think some judges might have an issue with the garnish being a bit thin looking but I try not to look at that. The meat looks awesome. A word of caution tho...loosely packed boxes have a tendency to not make it to the judges in pristine condition. I think you might reconsider the chunk placement.
1/16/2013 11:45:42 pm
very nice mix of cuts, I prefer to see a little sauce

9 - Interesting placement but well done! The meat looks delicious: moist but not over-sauced!

Pretty lite looking box. Meat kinda looks scattered about. Good looking bark, would use pulled chunks vs. cut chunks. Kinda makes you think it wasn't done enough to pull so you had to cut it into chunks. Pulled pieces look inviting.

8 - Very good box. I'd use the parsley to "elevate" the samples a bit more. Pulled looks nice and moist, and that is some great looking bark. I would cut the slices a little more evenly, too. Arrangement in the box is a bit awkward, but the meat looks good.

8 looks tasty, not a lot of smoke ring that I can see. chunks look dry

Score 8. If this box had more bark on the pulled pork in the middle, it would be a 9. I like the chunks and money muscle slices.

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. ;-)
