Score/Reason = 7/Too much sauce and it is unclear what the "lump" at the top of the box is. It is probably medallions, but they can not be identified as individual pieces, so it looks like an unsliced piece of loin.

8. Nice layout, good color, nice sized pieces. Somewhat over sauced.

8 - Nice looking box except it appears to be oversauced.

Score = 8, Too much sauce and sauce is uneven on the chunks.
12/11/2013 02:15:42 am
8 - looks great. Too much sauce for me to go with a 9. Nice presentation.
12/11/2013 02:32:10 am
Score 8. The reason I deducted one point is due to the heavy thick sauce.

7.....Over sauced. Money Muscle appears to be burnt on the right side. Sauce covering up dry meat? Can't judge the meat if you can't see it.

Score/Reasons = 7, maybe 8 in person. Blurry picture but clearly oversauced and may be dry under that sauce. MM looks pretty dark on one side.

9 nice looking box
12/11/2013 08:57:10 am
9, I think this has a little more sauce than I like. But I am going to give it to the cook. Box is clean and makes me want to grab some meat and dig in.

8- Another Great looking box of pork. Might be the photo, but appears heavily sauced.
12/12/2013 07:55:15 pm
8 - Sauce is to heavy, box could be considered marked
12/13/2013 01:00:26 am
8... a bit too much sauce from the pic. In person it might score better.
12/14/2013 01:17:15 am
Score/Reasons = 8 Looks appetizing enough, just too much sauce added after cook.

Jeff T - CBJ/KCBS

Score 7 - Both samples look over sauced. Pulled looks good, sliced appears burnt on right end.

9 looks very nice. Had to look close to make sure u had 6 pieces of money muscle
12/16/2013 12:48:23 pm
Score/Reasons = 8, the meat looks moist, but the sauce looks really heavy. Also, the right end of the money muscle is much darker than the rest, in person it might be more obvious why there's a color difference.

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. ;-)
