8 - Meat, istelf, looks good. Sauced, but not too sauced. The Money muscle looks great. The pieces on the left look OK, but they appear to have been generally dumped into the box. That part needs more care in arrangement.

Nice pork offering! meat looks very appetizing. Laid out well, slices could be moved rearward to make more balanced. Nice shine, will be curious as to what it is during tasting score.

Score = 8: Sauce is uneven. The color of the sauce ( a brownish, yellow color) is not very appetizing either.

8 For appearance only. Balanced box, but no pulled pork which makes up 90 - 95% of any butt.

Hard to tell if thats pork on left side of box.

Slices and chunks look good. I'm hoping the greenish color is the camera. 8, possibly a 9 in person.

score/comment 8 nice color and glaze, slices could have been a little straighter, just a little attention to detail and you would have a 9 from me

8 The meat looks pretty darn good but a deft hand with the sauce will save you points. I personally don't like heavily sauced pork. It either comes out looking like a piece of glazed chicken or greasy or both. You have both here.

Score 8 very nice and simple. Clean box and placement of the meat makes this box look very good.

7- the row of meat on the right of the box in not aligned consistently. Also, the sauce makes the meat look as if oil was spread over the meat making it look greasy.. The color of the meat is not very appetizing looking.

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. ;-)
