FIrst, the box looks like it was shook up a little, so Im assuming that it was done post turn in.

7. Good color and nice placement but the ribs are of different size and some cuts are bowed not straight.

8 kind of picky but the ribs don't have consistent surface appearance. looks blotchy and it caught my eye so i couldn't call them perfect.

7 - Box lacks organization, ribs are not neatly arranged, box has sauce stains.

Ribs look very good, above average and not too much sauce. Nice to see extra pieces. Score an 8.

Score/Reasons: 7, maybe 8 in person. Ribs are nicely presented but just need that certain pop to make for a higher appearance score.

Score 8. The ribs look good. The cook just needed to take more care assembling the box and also elevate the meat out of the garnish.

8 - something about the ribs looks a bit 'withered'.

Score/Reasons = 7, box hit me as "sloppy". A few ribs almost have an overcooked/shriveled look to them with sauce on top to hide it.
1/14/2014 10:56:06 pm
Score/Reasons 7 Way too much sauce dumped on after the cook. Sloppy box

Score/Reasons = 8, Looks VERY GOOD, but too many wee problems to be excellent: uneven cuts, uneven coloration, uneven saucing, etc.

I give this an 8, garnish looks very hap hazard in it's placement. Gaps between ribs, don't help make the meat attractive.

9 Looks great! I would recommend going a little lighter on the sauce, otherwise it is fantastic.

Score/Reasons = 6, ribs appear to be very dry, unevenly cooked with burnt areas and the sauce is not evenly applied.

Score/Reasons = 7. Heavy sauce on the meat detracts and the sauce is splashed around the box.

8 Ribs really look good. Presentation just doesn't merit higher.
1/15/2014 01:50:17 am
7 - Garnish covers meat, uneven cuts, sauce everywhere.
1/15/2014 01:52:32 am
7 - Sauced a bit too much, samples are even, color seems dark in places- could also be the photo. Product should be "ON" the garnish and not "IN" the garnish ie.. don't hide it.

Score = 9

Score = 7 maybe 8. Ribs are uneven in size and the sauce looks sloppy on them. Also there is sauce on the box. Don't know if this was prior to or after turn in. If prior, make sure the box is spotless (attention to detail!), If after then I would disregard this.

7, Very sloppy with sauce, ribs look dry or over cooked with sauce covering it up. I would like to taste to confirm tenderness

Score/Reasons = 7, crooked cuts, ribs aren't evenly sized, sauce is too heavy and shows brush marks. Looks like you picked a nice thick rack to cook, and the pullback is nice and 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. ;-)
