I would rate this a 9. good bark looks inviting to eat
8/20/2014 04:20:01 am
9 - just the right amount of sauce
8/20/2014 04:28:56 am
7. Look moist. Nice layout. Layout appears uneven and knife skills on slices could be improved.

Score/Reasons: 7 - I like the box layout. Maybe it's the photo, but under/around the nice looking sauce/glaze, the meat looks very dark and rather dry.

8 - Great looking pork box. Appears moist but not over sauced.

8 - Very good looking box. The sauce on the pieces is inconsistent, perhaps take the time to make it like the slices. However the slices look very good, a nice sheen with a rich dark bark. The sauce may be a little thick on the leftmost slices, but this could also be the lighting. Well done

9 - Nice box. Good color, even spacing, and appears not over sauced.

Score/Reasons = 8, May be higher in person. A different look, but appears it could be very appetizing. Sauce gets in the way of the meat here.

Score 9 - Iooking good, meat sitting nice and high in the box, some may say the bark is overdone but it looks delicious to me. I want this for dinner.
8/20/2014 10:24:29 am
Score/Reasons = 9, looks really nice. I'll take a box to go, please.

Score/Reasons = 7, lacks a lot of the appetizing factor for me! Looks fairly moist, but sauce isn't evenly spread and is very heavy. Just not making me want some, but not too negative either.
8/21/2014 01:48:08 pm
Score/Reasons = 8, looks good and color is good, but the slices are so uneven that the distract from the score

8 - I like the layout of the meat and there was plenty of bark, but I think picture quality was poor . Hard to tell a lot about it because it was too dark.

Score/Reasons = 9, the box looks pretty good. About the only thing is the about of glaze on the meat.

7. Looks a little burnt and sauced to cover up dryness.

8 Nice looking box of pork. Better looking slices (more uniform)

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. ;-)
