Score 9 - This looks like real pork and I can see how well it pulls. Yes, I want to taste it.

I give this box a 9. This is a well layout box, and it may have just a little too much sauce. But might not be so much in real life.

Score/Reasons = 9. May be lower in person as sauce may be a little heavy. The meat looks excellent and I want to jump in!

7...Money muscles two different colors and one has the end cut off. Chunks poorly arranged. Meat looks moist. Box is out of balance.

Score/reason = 8/box looks great; meat appears moist and delicious, but a little too moist; I can't tell if the moistness is purely sauce or not.
12/5/2013 01:06:32 am
8 - looks appetizing, but the middle portion looks unevenly crusted
12/5/2013 02:17:49 am
8 - Nice color, really looks good. The sauce glaze is my reason for not going a nine.

7 - The variety of the meat colors for all 3 selections looks very nice, however, the meats are over-sauced. May have presented better if the slices were separated and angled so the sides of the slices were visible.

Score/Reasons = 8, the meat looks good, but also oversauced. You get the idea you're going to taste sauce not meat - makes it less appetizing.
12/5/2013 04:48:25 am
8 looks moist , middle pork looks fatty , could be the light from pic .
12/5/2013 05:23:25 am
Score 8. Reasons: The only reason this box did not score a nine was due to the sauce. I did not like the shine and gloopy thick look.

Score = 9

Score - 9 great looking box - maybe a bit heavy on sauce but no biggie
12/5/2013 10:35:23 am
7 - Haphazard arrangement and meat appears over sauced.
12/5/2013 10:38:23 am
4. Uneven size. skin placement random. an unappealing box.

score/reason 7 color looks off, even looks slimy, not real appealing
12/5/2013 11:57:39 am
8 different sauces is kind of a turn off
12/6/2013 06:56:31 am
9 A good looking box. Can only hope it is not too sticky sweet.

Scored a 7 --- from the photo I cannot tell if the meat on the left is even sliced or not; too much sauce on all of them and I am having a difficult time identifying the piece in the middle.
12/7/2013 11:05:10 pm
8 - Appears to be oversauced.

Score/Reasons = 8 - the meat look un-natural with all the glaze. Otherwise looks good.

You are REQUIRED to register as a BBQ Critic Online Judge to be allowed to judge boxes on this site. Click here to sign up now.
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. ;-)
