Score = 7; meat appears like it could be tasty, but the placement of it seems rather sloppy, not reflective of an effort to make it look great.
6/10/2013 03:05:58 pm
8 Good potential but the photo lighting and focus is poor, not sure what I'm seeing.

Score/Resons: 8 - pulled looks good, chunks looks dry.

Seems arranged to look like a bird's nest. Would that be sculpting? If not, it's rather gimmicky. Hard to tell from the picture but I may ask the contest rep to have a look. If it's not DQ'd for sculpting, I'd say 7 based on the appearance of the meat.

Score - 8...Box is not organized that well.
6/10/2013 04:34:10 pm
7 - pulled meat looks dry (could be photo), circles of pulled pork and chunks are not a pleasing presentation, somewhat confusing to the eye, like that some chunks with bark are included. I think rows of product uniformly placed are more pleasing to the eye

8. Not the best picture to judge by
6/10/2013 11:06:10 pm
9, nice selection of meats, burnt ends look great
6/10/2013 11:35:54 pm
8, possibly a 9 in person. Meat looks moist and not too much sauce. Clarity of the picture doesn't let me see how the chunks look and whether there is plenty of the pulled sample.

Score/Reasons: 8 a lot of the issues I see might be caused by the pic but your chunks have crust up on some and down on others and make it appear uneven. Nice box design tho!

Pic is too bad. 'Can't see enough to judge.

Score/Reasons = 8, may be lower in person. Picture too dark too judge accurately. Color looks good but it appears that sauce is heavy.

9. Nice circular arrangement. Nice color shade mix. Look moist. Less pulled pork in middle might better highlight the circular layout in a category that is very hard to box attractively.

Score/Reasons: 9; Meat looks like it is cooked to perfection with a nice mix of shredded and chunks of bark.

Score/Reasons = 7 might be the pic, but the ends look a little over sauced while the pulled pork looks a little dry

7, The chunks around the outside look like they were just thrown in. If seen live they could have scored better.

Score = 9, An example that you do not need slices of money muscle to present a great looking pork box.
6/11/2013 05:21:46 am
9 - Good bark. Looks moist but not oversauced.
6/11/2013 06:37:00 am
Score 9. Nothing wrong with this entry. Excellent mix and great color.
6/11/2013 07:57:31 am
8...meat looks moist and I like the pieces with bark.
6/11/2013 09:14:04 am
8, I liked the bark on some of the pieces.
6/11/2013 12:27:45 pm
8- Very good looking pork box. Nice looking pulled and chunks. Not heavily sauced.
6/11/2013 01:20:51 pm
9 Good looking pork box. Makes you want to taste it.

9 - Excellent. Bark looks good, and I like how you served many different parts of the butt.

9...Good color and bark on the chunks. Lightly sauced. Pulled looks a little dry but not enough to deduct a point.

Score/Reasons = 8, nice looking chunks, presented well.

Full box, that's a plus. Nice arrangement. I'm really likeing the chunks with bark, pulled does not impress.

7 - I would like to see a better angle of the box of looking down more. Box looks very unorganized as if the meat was just thrown in. I'd recommend a little more time spent placing the samples in a more symetrical looking arrangement.

Score/Reason: I would score this box a 9. Looks juicy and moist.
6/20/2013 09:09:33 am
Score/Reasons = 8 a little messy. chunks look great. circular arrangement ok, but needs to be tighter. pull could use some light sauce or color.

score/reason 6 looks dry, looks a little burnt, and messy

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. ;-)
