9 nice box
6/10/2013 03:08:00 pm
7 Nice arrangement but way too much sauce painted on. I wonder if you can even taste any meat flavor?

Score = 7; the medallion in the right front is out of line with the others; plus the color is off (possibly the photo); the sauce is too prominent, making the meat look "shiny," and making it difficult to see the true color of the meat.

SCORE - 8. Awesome bark, nice arrangement, sauce looks more like a glaze than a competition meat but still very appetizing.

Score - 8

8 - good color, looks juicy, nice uniform rows with 2 MM included, shows that cook knows how to work with a pork shoulder

8 here. What's keeping it a 9 for me is no separation in the arrangement.
6/10/2013 11:08:54 pm
8, very nice, just a touch too much sauce though
6/10/2013 11:38:08 pm
9. Nice arrangement and meat has good bark and looks tender.

Score/Reasons: 8 The slices look pretty uneven in thickness and the meat is sauced too heavily.

an 8. Good layout, well arranged, look moist but but right slice row bends inward at front. Fewer slices might make the box look less busy and allow them to be viewed more fully - also the fewer the pieces the less risky the box becomes to poor knife skills or even sizing.

Score/Reasons: 8; The thick, gloppy glaze on the meat makes it look almost artificial. Having said that, the construction of the box is very nicely done.

Score/Reasons = 8, the box looks good but the meat is a bit over sauced. This makes the meat look slimy.

8 - Looks oversauced.
6/11/2013 06:33:50 am
Score 8. Reason: This entry would be an easy nine except for the goopy gravy that the meat was coated with. I like the box balance and the two meat placement. Suggestion: either reduce or leave the sauce off, I hope the cook did not coat the pork to add taste.

9.....Meat looks very appetizing. I like the color and the layout of the meat looks great.
6/11/2013 09:18:09 am
9, I like the shine of the glaze and I like the way the meat is arranged.
6/11/2013 10:27:49 am
That is a very nice looking box, might be a little too much sauce on, hard to tell from the pic but it does look real good. Definitely an 8 minimum, possibly a 9 in person. I would also tighten up the parsley around the outside, but great box!
6/11/2013 12:29:23 pm
9- Great color on slices and chunks. Excellent arrangement : is orderly and uniform, Excellent looking box!
6/11/2013 01:24:06 pm
8 Too heavily sauced for my taste.

8 - Very good. Money muscle looks good, and the chunks look tasty.

8...Nice bark and color. Way over sauced. Sauce may be covering up dry meat.

Score/Reasons = 7, too much sauce and the color of the sauce is a bit dark. Not an appetizing color to me. Slices in the front are thick and look like the chunks.

Nice full pork box. Well glazed but I'm afraid it will interfear with my tasting the pork. Slices could be arranged better.

Score/Reason: I would score the box a 9. This looks great!
6/20/2013 09:06:25 am
Score/Reasons = 8 slices look thick and over sauced. Pieces look large

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. ;-)
