9. Nicely laid out in box. Makes me want to eat it, which is the whole point of appearance.

I would rate this a 7. I would turn the parts that would show bark so they all can be viewed

7 - Needs more smoke, heat, sugar to form a nice bark. Try for more uniformity in the chunks.

7 - The meat in this box does not appeal to me. The pulled is too stringy and the bark does not look flavorful. Too red and not dark.

8 - Appears moist. More time spent on the arrangement would make it a bit more appealing.

Nothing terrible. Just don't want to fight anybody to get at it.

9 - Nice, full box. Not a fan of the color however, with the use of lighter, milder woods the color/taste could be lighter.

8 - Very Good Entry. Well done, I like the two presentations here. The pulled looks perhaps a little dry - but it could easily be the picture. The chunks offer a nice contrast, show good bark and some effective saucing. Good Job

score / reason 9 looks great enough said

Score/Reason = 8, This is a very good pork entry. I like the overall arrangement, the pulled meat looks moist even without the use of sauce. Although I like the color on the chunks, their placement could be more organized, the two pieces on the right side are not in sync with the others.
9/28/2014 03:32:32 pm
9 - great looking box. Pulled pieces look nice. The shredded meat looks nice and juicey, not dried out.

Score/Reasons = 9, the box looks good. Not much to say about it. Like the placement of the meat and the color. You let the meat show through and stand on its own, not slathered in sauce.

Score/Reasons = 9, meat looks moist, maybe a bit light in color, but still has some bark. Looking forward to tasting this one.

Appearance-8-Very appetizing box. Pork doesn't look dry, in fact looks very moist.

I like the color and the meat looked moist. Without tasting the pork, i would give it 8 or 9.

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. ;-)
