7 It is easy to say ignore the foil, but hard to do. Ribs appear over cooked.

Score: 7 - Color is a bit dark but could be the picture, slicing is okay, placement is uniform but ribs on the bottom could have been displayed a little more, over all the meat looks a bit over cooked.

7 just doesn't look good. seems to be over charred and covered up with sauce.

Way to dark and just looks unappealing to my eye would go 7 to 7.5 according to taste.

5 - below average in presentation. Look a bit overlooked.

6 - Dark, dry looking, and cut poorly.
1/20/2013 12:39:46 am
Really dark, difficult to see. I'm being a little generous in giving a 6.

Looks kinda dry, dark and overdone. Middle front rib has no visible bone to match the others. No real pop here.

Lighting in photo is very dark which makes the ribs look dark. They also look dry. I'd give this box a 7 maybe and 8.

7 Presentation doesn't work, uneven look, too dark to judge fairly.
1/20/2013 03:26:20 am
A DISQUALIFICATION because of foil garnish.

8. Could be higher in person. Ribs appear a little dark, but it may just be the photo exposure.

This entry is very hard to score for a KCBS judge. First, the foil does not allow a proper picture and out shines the ribs. Second, I can only see a poor picture with no side view of the ribs. It work be easier to score if we could actually view the meat, but then again as KCBS judges we would D/Q for the foil.

Should be DQ for "foreign object" (aluminum foil) in the box!

Even ignoring the foil, the presentation just isn't there. I'd give it a 6 only because the meat does look good.
1/20/2013 01:07:46 pm
Ribs are pretty even in size. Can't tell for sure by looking at the photo on whether they are over-cooked or not. More than likely they would be a high 7 or low 8.

KCBS CBJ, MIM, MBN - 8. Darker than I would like to see. Perhaps overdone? I get the feeling all the moisture has been cooked out of these.

Score 7: Looks burnt; not a very attractive box; looks skimpy

7 - Above average.
1/21/2013 07:00:59 am
7 - Lack of uniformity. Two of the first three pieces have bones exposed and one does not. Otherwise looks really good.

7. Color is very dark. Would like to see the side of the rib.

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. ;-)
