Ribs Box 147

Poor picture first of all. Also poor placement of ribs in the box. Hopefully there's at least six ribs here. My first thought would be a 7, maybe higher in person.

score=8 poor presentation

6 May be poor photo quality, but meat not placed squarely in box. Garnish not even on all sides. Probably tastes better than it looks.

8. May be higher in person - picture is underexposed. Nice color on meat. Suggestion - neaten up garnish and presentation.

9 light makes it look a little saucy but i am guessing it isn't based on the top portions. looks good to me!

Score 7: May be picture, but appears very dark; overly sauced, not a very attractive arrangement in the box.

7 - the picture is a little dark but the ribs appear to be over glazed for me. Also, the ribs should be centered in the box. The ribs are skewered to the left.

8. Looks great!

Nice sized ribs. good color. Easy on the sauce. Should have been centered in the box for a more balanced look but still a .............9

8 Looks promissing, nice color, arrangement good, need more light on this one.

7 or 8 maybe more, maybe less can not tell from picture.

To dark. Can't see them

These ribs probably look great in a better light source.

8 - nice looking, not oversauced, ribs. Box would look better with two more ribs in it for better symmetry.

Pic kinda dark, could be an 8.
1/16/2013 04:32:48 am
Score ? - Photo is so dark I can't tell if there are more than 5 ribs.

Picture is very dark hard to get good look at the ribs. From what I can see the ribs look dry and color is uneven. I'd give them a 7 maybe a 6.

7 - ribs look meaty but unevenly sauced and haphazardly placed.

`Can't score this bad picture. However, I'd deduct for not centering the meat in the box to start....

8. Center pieces in the box. Picture a little dark to actually see the meat. Nice glaze.
1/16/2013 12:02:22 pm
8 - I would like to have seen a picture with more light. The symmetry is off on this box; maybe two additional ribs placed on the right side would balance the box.

9 - very nicely sliced, even though it's a little uneven it still looks like a very well prepared rib. 8 bones is a plentiful box, giving photo the benefit of the doubt in being so dark... GIMME one!
1/16/2013 11:44:41 pm
8 very nice glaze, but sort of hides bottom 4

7 - The picture is so bad it's difficult to judge. However, the placement in this box is sloppy! The ribs are too far to the left and you can barely see the rib on the upper right! You can't see the side of any rib, so it's impossible to see what the meat looks like. Given a better picture or in person, these ribs would possible score higher!

8, maybe a 9 in person. I suggest centering the ribs in the box and cutting more evenly. Other than that, great box. Nice work.

Nice slab look on the ribs, good color, nice cuts. Size is fairly even.

7 I wanted to make it an 8 but but the picture is way too dark for me be sure. They do look tasty maybe over sauced can't really tell Sorry

Ribs looked good, but placement could have been better. The ribs in the back were uneven, making it an awkward looking box.

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. ;-)
