Score/Reasons = 9, despite a slight out of focus this is a very good looking and well balanced box. The meat looks very moist, has a wonderful color and a nice shine. The main arrangement shows off a natural pulled look, with a fair amount of bark included. Because the cubes don't appear to be identically sized, they fit right in with the natural look of the pulled meat. I would have liked to be in seat #1 when this box was being judged so I could get first pick.

8 - Love the color on the pulled - but I'm not sure what the chunks are and they look a bit over charred.

7 - Pile of pulled needs to centered. Chunks should be more uniform.

Score/Reasons: 9 - beautiful box of pork. It has great color and moisture. Makes me want to dive right in.

Score/Reasons = 8. I think the burnt ends distract from a nice pork entry.
2/17/2015 11:22:16 am
Color looks good, like to see bark, meat looks moist. I would give this an 8.

Score/Reasons = 9, looks pretty good. The shininess is probably due to the photo.
2/18/2015 03:42:52 pm
Not giving a score on the meat but my score on the photography is a solid 3. Photo is so far out of focus it's hard to say much about this entry. I see shiny meat so we know it's not dry but the color is very hard to judge. I guess the arrangement is OK, from what I can tell.

9 looks moist and tasty

8 - pretty good box. Meat looks very moist with the right amount of sauce. Burnt ends are odd shaped. Greenery looks ok.

Score 9 Very nice presentation of the pork. Looks very moist and, with the addition of some bark, makes this very appealing. Burnt ends could have been more uniform.

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. ;-)
