7 Just doesn't look tha appetizing.
1/12/2013 11:26:56 pm
Score 9 - I really like the look of well cooked ribs without too much sauce.

score=7 not real attractive, more effort on uniformity
1/13/2013 12:07:53 am
Uneven, ragged cuts and overall lack of effort in this box gets a 7.
1/13/2013 12:08:24 am
six--poor knife cuts, inconsistent rib placement
1/13/2013 12:10:07 am

Score: 7 - Color is good on the first row but uneven on the second, slicing good on the first row but very uneven on the second, placement is okay, pieces are not very uniform overall.

6 - dry, uneven cuts, and poor placement in box.

7 shapes, sizes and amount of bone showing differ (although i can't really see all of the bone on some ribs in the back). ribs in front appear to have more glaze/shine than ribs in back.
1/13/2013 12:20:02 am
7 - the ribs are not the same shape and size. More care needs to be taken when selecting and arranging the box.

Cuts are uneven and ragged. The color on the front 4 ribs is nice, the back 3 ribs on the right have some pale spots. I'd give this box a 7 maybe an 8.

Knife cuts could improve, otherwise going to side with cook,8.

7. Could be the picture but looks a bit on the dry side. Neaten up the slicing - some are a bit ragged.
1/13/2013 01:54:26 am
Score 8. The ribs could be cut better to give the box a more organized appearence and I alway like to see the side of the entry, but these still appear to look like tasty ribs.

6 - Average box. Maybe a 7 in person. Not a clean slice on a couple of pieces. Not placed evenly in the box. Looks a little hurried.
1/13/2013 04:26:40 am
a 5. The pieces are of different sizes. Some are overlaid-others not. Knife leaves a few with jagged edges. But color is good and look moist.
1/13/2013 06:15:34 am
7 - the ribs are not cut evenly. The third rib from the left on top, was not cut cleanly. Some of the ribs on the top row look dry. With the amount of bone showing, the other ribs may also be dry. Would have to taste to be sure.

5 - the meat looks dry & unappealing, the slices are haphazardly executed and the box generally looks unfinished.

I do not know where to begin wrong on so many fronts 5
1/13/2013 07:37:46 am
Looks good but I would not have put the one on the bottom left in the box cut on an angle.
1/13/2013 08:04:46 am
7 - Would like to have seen a cleaner and more organized presentation. Ribs could have been cut better.

Front 4 ribs get a 8...back 4 get a 6.
1/13/2013 12:21:18 pm
A little uneven cutting and sizes. 7

8 - Nice color and they look good; not sure what the bare spots on the 2nd & 4th ribs on top are; the cuts were a bit ragged and could be cleaned up. Need to be careful about placement; the 1st rib on the left on bottom is oddly placed. More care could be taken with the placement.

8 Looks good but nothing makes it pop!

8. Placement and evenness of the ribs needs some work.

As many commenters like to say - no wow factor. Uneven cuts. Uneven sauce. Not overly appetizing looking - 6.

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. ;-)
