6 - ribs look dry & unappealing.

Uneven sauce, uneven cuts, and haphazard presentation = 6 from me.

Score 7. The ribs and even the box layout has no appeal.

six--and that is generous

7 The arrangement bothers me, seems that garnish is more important than the ribs, but maybe these are very good.

Ribs look over cooked and dry....sauce is uneven. Maybe a 7.

Very nice layout, ribs look moist. Veryappealing to the eye.

7. Would be higher if cut style was the same (see second bone from the bottom) and cooking/saucing were a bit more even.

Good color. Hit and miss on the sauce. To much open spaces in the box.......7

Color is uneven. Sauce is uneven. Those ribs just don't look very appetizing. I'd give this box a 6.

7 rib meat not centered on each bone, ribs do not look the same and varying amounts of bone shown. sauce appears gloppy on some ribs.

Uneven cuts, uneven sauce application. Unorodox placement, not sure if I like it but it does allow viewing both tops and sides.

8 , From top, rib #1 and 5 are not uniform as compared to others. Not sure what is going on with sauce; not 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. ;-)
