Score these ribs 7. Score could improve in person if the sides of the ribs could be seen and also get a better look at the sauce.

7 application of the sauce/glaze give the bark an almost muddy appearance. not very appetizing. i would have also like to have seen the profile of the meat so i could assess the the appearance.

7 - if I can see the sides of the ribs, they should be sauced. These ribs just don't do it for me, subjectively...

Score: 7 - Very dark, poorly presented

Score: 7 (Above Average) Too heavy on the sauce and overly dark color are working against this entry. Size of the individual ribs is inconsistent. Having said that, what I can see of the meat doesn't look dry, so I'd be looking forward to tasting this entry.

7 - Overly manipulated picture, difficult to judge. Overly sauced in places. Suggestion: neaten up the slices.

hard to tell if this is an actualbox, but the ribs look great 7

8. The meat is off center on the garnish and the far left rib has a gash in it. Both of those items detract from the total presentation. The samples look juich and moist. Just some more care in placing the box is needed.

Score = 6. Average box. Meat seems to have a bit of a crispy/gritty exterior to it.

score=8 nice box, like the bark.

Your cuts are nice and clean but the sizes are all over the place.
2/1/2013 02:40:05 am
6 Unappealing look, over cooked perhaps, rough slicing, uneven sizes, sauce heavy.

7....Sauce looks goopy. The cut on the left front rib is distracting. Ribs are not evenly cut.

2/1/2013 03:47:35 am
6 - Color seems dark, sauce looks to thick, cracks on face of ribs, uneven cuts.

Score = 8 A couple of uneven pieces on the right prevented a 9.

Score = 6. Those ribs look really dark and very unappealing. The front rib on the right looks over cooked as it seems to be falling apart in the box.
2/1/2013 09:50:55 am
I would give this box a 6. The ribs are very dark in color. They appear to be dry on the outside and then sauced to make look more appealing. The ribs are also not cut in uniform slices.
2/1/2013 12:31:54 pm
7 - Uneven cuts, off center presentation, and gloppy sauce.
2/1/2013 01:31:35 pm
7 I like the color, I want to taste them, no rib in the box looks the same, and the front left has a large cut on it, and the cut marks on the forward right 3 just bad appearance.

7. Too many ribs. It looks too crowded.
Jim H - CBJ SBN/KCBS

Score: 8. The ribs are a little dark for me but they appear to be well-prepared.

8 the cut on the front left rib takes it down
2/2/2013 09:57:13 am
SCORE: 6. Different size of ribs. Also they are not evenly cut.

9 - Excellent! No suggestions for improvement.
2/3/2013 08:24:12 am
7 - the pieces do not look uniform and appear to have a burnt look to them. If the front pieces had of been the same size as the first two from the left to right, I would go with an 8. The last piece on the right looks very odd shaped. The sauce does not glisten and thus not very eye appealing.

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. ;-)
