7 -- I ike to see a full rib box. IMHO, it makes a better overall appearance than not a full box. I believe a light finishing glaze would improve the appearance score.

Uneven cuts and the burnt tops compel me to a 7 or maybe an 8 in person.

Score 7. Ribs appear dry and overcooked. Meat is too dark to be appealling.

8 Looks good, generous portions, color and sauce about right.

Ribs look okay but may be too dry. This is an instance where a little more sauce might help. 7

Nice bark and sauce. Could use a little more shine. The bones are distracting..........8

Color is a little uneven. Size and cuts are also a little uneven. I'd give this box a 7.

8 varying amounts of bone showing. when i see so much bone on each rib, it gives the rib a dried out appearance, to me.

A 7. Good knife skill and neat arrangement but color uneven and box very crowded.

8 ribs have differing bark and too much bone showing.

Appear to be overcooked and dry (evidenced by cracked surface on front second rib).

8 - I like that these haven't been doused in sauce and I like what appears to be a good, smoky bark. Uneven and even jagged cuts in places are the only thing keeping it from 9.

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. ;-)
