Score = 7. Pork looks moist but nothing grabs your attention. A little more attention to presentation would have helped this box a lot.

8 looks good but kind of plane.

I give this box a 6. This may be the best tasting meat in the world. But it reminds me of a buffet line were the meat came out of the refer and was just dumped into a pan. Makes me want to just say , Next.

Score/Reasons = 9. It can be tough to make chopped pork look "excellent" but this one works. It appears nicely cooked, juicy and evenly chopped without appearing mushy. Hope it tastes as good as it looks!

9 now that is lovely ! Love the bark running thru !!!

Score 7. Reasons: I do not understand why a cook would take all of the time to carefully season and smoke a pork butt/shoulder and then chop it to pieces. I can only believe that the meat did not come out as the cook expected or this is just the lazy way to present and serve the meat. I would never take the time to prepare a roast and then use meat cleavers to chop it to pieces. Not an attractive presentation and I don't believe it will be a tasty one also.

Certainly a "different" look here, but it's on the positive side. I'd like to get this at my table sometime. = 8 =

9 - This looks as good as you can make pulled pork look. The lack of garnish may be a turn-off to some judges but it is optional and we should not take points off for no garnish.

Score/Reasons = 6 - the way the meat is just pile up does not make it look appetizing. The meat looks like the canned hash and is presented like one finds in a school cafeteria.

Online BBQ Judge Sign-up
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. ;-)
