7 - Haphazard arrangement and spotty sauce. Neatness and attention to detail will improve overall score.
12/11/2013 12:45:30 am
7 - sauce uneven. Needs organizing.

Score/Reason = 7/The sauce looks like it was an afterthought and not incorporated into the meat; it's not a good showcase for the meat; there is no symmetry to the meat placement (bark pieces just included in the mix, not marketed as a separate part of the presentation).
12/11/2013 01:23:17 am
7. Looks moist, good color, nice sized pieces. Bark on top could be more evenly spread through the box.
12/11/2013 01:29:11 am
7 - Don't like the gloppy sauce.
12/11/2013 02:14:26 am
7 - the meat looks great; however, the sauce looks like an afterthought. Judge 5 and 6 will not receive meat with the added sauce.

Score = 7, Sauce looks uneven and the color of it is not very appetizing.
12/11/2013 02:34:16 am
Score 9. Nice color with the mix of meat and bark. I appreciate the reasonable amount of sauce. A great entry!

9 nice looking box
12/11/2013 08:55:09 am
8, sauce looks like it prety random, just no wow factor

8-Very good looking pork box . Nice looking chunks. Appears moist, heavily sauced in a couple of spots
12/12/2013 07:45:40 pm
8 - looks good, box could have been neater, sauce is a bit heavy.
12/13/2013 12:58:42 am
7... where the sauce isn't the meat looks dry. Haphazard saucing.
12/14/2013 01:22:36 am
Score/Reasons = 6 Average looking box. Some parts look mushy, possibly from over cooking.

Score/Reasons = 8 - the meat in not placed in the box neatly. Not all the meat is evenly painted with glaze / sauce.

I would score this box a 7. Meat with the sauce added looks great!
Matt KCBS CBJ
12/14/2013 09:34:01 am
Score/Reasons = 8, nice full box, meat looks juicy, bark looks good, 8 instead of 9 because the sauce is sporadically spread and the chunks are too big.
Jeff KCBS CBJ
12/14/2013 04:07:06 pm
score/reason 8 sauce needs to be more evenly distributed not just globed on in spots. Color looks good and looks moist as well would have been higher if sauce was more even.
Jeff T - CBJ/KCBS
12/15/2013 12:43:10 am
Score 7 - Good color and nice bark, but the globs of sauce hurt the presentation. Stray strands of meat could have happened during turn-in, so did not consider in scoring.
Tina C KCBS CBJ

7 looks moist but not a very appealing presentation
12/16/2013 12:47:41 pm
Score/Reasons = 7, the meat looks a little dry, except for those areas with sauce (which is irregularly applied). The pieces are also irregularly sized.

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. ;-)
