Score/Reasons = 6, box looks like its missing burnt ends and pulled pork. Meat looks over cooked.

8 - Color seems to be off or it's the picture itself. It just doesn't pop out at you. Maybe it's too much garnish...............?

Score = 7, possibly 8 in person.

I give this one an 8, maybe a high 8. But the box looks a little empty. Meat looks good, maybe two different money muscles, and a little differetn in size. Meat looks good, but the effect is just not there for a higher score.

9. The meat that is in the box looks great. It would be nice to be able to fill the box up with meat if you are able.

7 - What's presented is overwhelmed by the garnish. The meat really isn't the star of the box - it looks good - but you can't see enough of it to really make it score higher.

Score 7. The meat looks to be over cooked and dry.

7, the color appears to be off, very red, need a better look at the product

Score 7. I know it's just a picture, but when we must score from a picture this one just doesn't get it. The pork is too dark and appears to be overcooked. The slices are buried in the garnish and we are only able to see the top of the slices? Fairest score I can give with this picture.

7. Box doesnt look very exciting to me. I like the color and sauce, but would really like to see more than just slices. And the sizes arent uniform.

7- The picture is very dark and makes it a little difficult to see the shine and true color of the meat. The row of slices is a little lopsided; score could be increased with more uniform slices. The glaze gives a deep red appearance, kind of off putting to me.

Score/Reasons = 8, photo is so dark and the meat is also, that it lost a wee bit of appetizing appeal for me, but still looks pretty good.

Score/Reasons = 7/The picture is dark, but there's nothing spectacular about the appearance. Save for the medallion in front, you can't see anything but the bark and smoke ring.

9. Nice layout. Even color. Good knife skills. Look moist.
5/22/2014 05:12:32 am
8 Nice greenery but too much. Needs shine and more uniform meat. Picture a little out of focus...MCBJ

7 - Interesting only one type of sample. No pulled and no money muscle. I don't see that very often. Box looks empty. With that said, even with uneven slices the meat looks appetizing.
5/22/2014 06:52:33 am
7 Meat looks kind of dry. Need more in the plate. Not an interesting plate arrangment.

Score = 7, Pieces look overcooked and dry. The angle of the photo doesn't allow a very good look at the meat.

Score/Reasons = 7, may be the picture but it is dark. The meat is dark and too red. Since this is a poor picture this is all I can say about it.

Score/Reasons = 8, bark looks slightly over cooked. Can't really see the meat, just the bark, but the bark looks very good.

Score/Reasons = 7, but just a guess as the picture is too poor to accurately judge. Fix the focus, the angle and the exposure. Looks like it might be well cooked and appetizing.

Score/Reasons: 7; The meat appears very dark and overdone, -even a little dry.

8, looks a little burnt, but it may just be the picture

7- What you have in the box looks great, but you have more green in the box than you have meat. you need more samples of pork ex. pulled, tubes, etc. Judges are supposed to judge meat , not garnish.

The pieces as singles look delish, but as a whole box it's not popping as it should. Looks a little skimpy.

Score/Reasons = 7 - a little too much uneven in size and looks dry. Appears to be cut too thick from what is normally seen and the second from top slice detracts significantly from the symmetry you wanted to achieve. Hard to see the side of the cut when you slice straight down.

score 7 , the coloring is off or its a bad photo. I would open up between pieces to view the white meat a little better

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. ;-)
