8 - Pulled looks great. The chunks/slices don't appear to be as moist as the pulled.

6-money muscle? pieces not uniform,pulled pork doesn't look good either

7 - Solid box here with some variation in the size of the slices. The slices may have benefited from some saucing to make them look more moist. The pulled looks moist and inviting.

7 The dark pulled and gray money muscle doesn't look appealing

Score/Reasons: 7 - The meat looks tired and uninviting. The pulled meat looks like it was simply dumped into the box. The slices appear raggedy and in need of some TLC.

Not much effort put out here. Nothing makes me want to grab a piece immediatly. Slices look dry and bland. I don't give this much weight until taste and tenderness scoring, but it does give me pause.

6....Meat looks cold and unappealing. Slices look dry. The two slices on the left side are different than the others.

Score/Reasons = 7, the meat is just blah, nothing interesting, no color and nothing to catch the eye and make me want to eat it. The meat looks dry and the slices are unevenly sliced.

8 - Could have been a 9 but money muscle is not uniform and looks a little dry. Good job over all...

score / reason 7 looks like it could be dry and not appealing in the color money mussel pieces look very un-consistant in there sizes.
7/27/2014 05:58:39 pm
Score/Reasons = 7, slices look dry and unappealing. Rest of box isn't in a pattern or form, so it isn't inviting.

Appearance 5- The meat looks dry. It looks as if the slices have fatty striations in the meat. My CBJ class was taught by one of the best in the business. I'll never forget his ultimate saying "How appetizing does the meat look in its setting?" This does not look appetizing at all.
7/29/2014 06:16:06 am
I would rate this a 6. Looks dry, messy and un even

6- The meat looks dry especially the medallions. Lack of uniformed sizes and ragged slices detract from the score.
7/30/2014 04:08:21 pm
Sorry 6 is as good as this gets. Should have left out money muscle and used the pulled pork only. Money muscle was: 1. Cut too thin 2. Not cut in uniformed pieces. 3. Looks very dry, needs to be sauced.

7- Money muscle appears to be dry, and if you are going to use more than 1 money muscle for the sample, make sure they are proportionate in size.The pulled sample looks moist, but could be placed better in the box.

7. Money muscle looks dry and has uneven cuts.
8/1/2014 11:26:24 am
Pulled looks ok, slices look like they are waaaay overdone and dry
8/4/2014 07:27:43 am
Score 7. Pulled looks great but the sliced money muscle has two big chunks a four smaller pieces. Sliced looks dry.
8/4/2014 01:12:37 pm
Score/Reasons = 6 Just average. looks dry. MM, if that is what it is, doesn't look like it is all from the same piece.

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. ;-)
