CBJ, I would score this box as a 9 because I am judging what is there. I do encourage you to provide some samples of pulled product in your box. If you aren't showing me you are a well rounded cook, I am left to wonder and hope that you are.

7 - just OK - no magic

8 Good looking box. Looks suspiciously like loin rather than butt.

8. Nice layout, even color, even sizing but right sliced row ahead of left. Look moist.

8 - nice box, but it could use some more "pop" for me to give a 9.

Beautiful full box, looks nice and moist with some seasoning in the finishing sauce. cuts are clean and even. Would have liked some bark on the pulled but can't score down cause it's not there, ya know!!

7. I love the arrangement but there isToo much meat. Reduce the amount in half since there is only 6 judges not 12. Then with the 6 you choose, make sure they look the same. There is too much of a variance in color of the meat.

9 - good looking box

Score: 8 - Nice color, very good arrangement and uniform placement, slices and pulled pieces look appealing and moist, color is a little light and there is just a little too much sauce on the pieces or I would have scored a 9.

Interesting box, a bit confusing to me. Two rows of cut pork, one of which looks more sauced than the other and then in the middle a row of chopped (chucked) pork. There are plenty of samples for a table. I cannot tell from the picture how well it is cooked but the box contents are well placed.

7 - The arrangement is OK but the meat looks dry. The money meat is cut unevenly especially the left upper left pieces.

Score between a high 8 or a low 9. I get a little confused with the medallions. These look like that they were cooked, cut and put back on grill. I think I see "grill marks". Stretching the rules, as I know them. Center pieces could have more "bark" showing.

8 - very good.

Score = 9: The sauce on the end slices is uneven with the left one having more sauce than the right. Not enough to knock the score down though.

9 nice box with good chunks which fits well in box

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. ;-)
