8. This pork looks great but if you're going to use sauce make sure it gets on all of the pork. Would have been a 9 otherwise.

7 sauce is heavily applied and makes it difficult to judge the appearance of the meat.

6 - unappetizing. meat looks grey. sauce does not seem to carefully applied and looks like a last minute add-on.

Score: 7 - Uneven sized chunks of meat; overly sauced

Score: 8 (Very Good) Pay attention to placement and lighten up on the sauce and this might have been a 9.

7 - Hard to see the meat with all that sauce. Nice looking bark. Suggestion: be careful that your cuts are all equal in quality if you present sliced, chunks and pulled. The lower quality on one cut can bring down the scores on the others.

Score = 8. Very good box. Moist, plenty of meat. Would love to pop one of those burnt ends in my mouth!

8....The sauce is covering up some good looking meat. Nice bark and the pulled appears to be moist.

Pretty hard to work with that picture, but ti looks like your saucing job looks a little heavy and incomplete. Hope it doesn't interfere with the taste of the pork. The pulled in the middle is pretty ineffective as you can barley see it. If it's just there for filler to lift the meat up, realize it's going to be tasted and scored as well so it should be just as good as the chunks.

6 Sauce heavy, color off, not appealing at all.

7 - Too much thick gloppy sauce, plus it hides the meat (intentional?). Can't see the pulled meat because its covered up.

7 The color is not appealing but that may be viewing on a computer. The M/M slices looks like sauce is uneven, you can see bare meat on some pieces. Where is the nice looking pulled pork? it is buried underneath those chunks. Need better arrangment, and attention closer to detai.l

9. Beautiful box of pork. Very nice bark on all chunks with pulled beneath. I would however go a little easier on the amount of sauce.

8 - Very nice looking box arrangement, sauce may be too heavy.

Score = 8 I know there's pulled meat in there but I can't see enough

Score = 8. I can see some bare spots on the meat where the sauce isn't covering. Fix that and the box will be a 9

I would give this box an 8. Pork looks very appealing. May have a little to much sauce and chunks are not cut into uniform pieces. I would like to try this pork! Presentation may have looked better if the chunks were placed around the outside of the box with the pulled showing in the middle of the box.

Uneven, gloppy sauce gets an 8. I won't deduct for the fuzzy picture.

Score: 7 - This pork is unappealing, mostly because of the amount of sauce on it. The picture quality doesn't help.

SCORE: 7. Too much sauce and can't see the shredded/pulled meat on the bottom. Nice bark.

SCORE: 6. Looks like they threw it in box.

8 - Very good! Good variety of pork in the box. Everything looks great. My only complaint is that the pulled is covered up.
2/3/2013 08:26:24 am
8 - the slices and chunks look great. Not sure if the chef was trying to hide the pulled pieces under the chunks, but if you are going to submit all three then please show all three. The sauce glistens and looks very appealing.

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. ;-)
