9 looks pretty good, sauce may be a little heavy but can't tell for sure so i will error on the side of the cook, as usual.

Nice color. Sauce looks OK. The arrangement needs work. To much green and the box is out of balance. Maybe put another rib in the row and move the row down to balance it out.......8

Nice looking rib box. I'd give it an 8.

8. Maybe a 9 in person. Looks oversauced but may be the photo. Suggestion: try a different layout - this one makes the box appear sparse.

Variations in color and size aren't working for me today.

Score 6 - Nothing makes this stand out. They might be a little under cooked and more than enough sauce.

7 - The pieces look good; a few could have been more uniformed. Even though the minimum requirement is six pieces, a failure to maximize every aspect of the presentation can reduce the score. Several additional pieces in a symmetrical arrangement would have had a better visual appeal and obtained a higher score.

7 nothing outstanding about this box, but does look appetizing.
12/22/2012 02:01:32 am
8 - These look appetizing and juicy but they're unevenly sauced(possibly unevenly cooked?) and the box looks slightly empty.
12/22/2012 03:09:50 am
9. Uniform looking, nice glaze.
12/22/2012 05:00:35 am
8 - Ribs look great. Good color with some bark on the ends but the 4-2 arrangement is what lost the one point on the score.
12/22/2012 07:55:02 am
Unsven cuts and spacing gets an 8 from me. Borderline too much sauce.

8 - Overall, a nice presentation; a little too "shiny" for me, meaning there's too much sauce.
12/23/2012 03:11:37 am
a 9! Simple but well laid out. Even color and good knife skills shown. Look moist. A yummy looking box.

9 - nice presentation, not overly sauced. The only comment would be the two ribs at the top right looks to be smaller in size than the others. Nice!!!!

8- Overall looks good even though there appears to be too much glaze.

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. ;-)
