8 sauce is too thick. everything else looks good.
3/30/2013 04:23:05 am
8 - glaze a little uneven.
3/30/2013 05:12:41 am
9 Judging from appearance only. Looks good enough to want to taste for tenderness and taste.
3/30/2013 05:14:53 am
9! Good layout, good knife skills, even sized and color. Look moist.

Never thought I'd say this, but there is too much meat in the box. I'd give it an 8.

Score - 9 See you can get more than 6 ribs in a box. These are pretty light in color and I hope they are fully cooked.

7. Sauce appears a bit clumped in some areas and lacking in others.

9 - Very nice box of ribs...not perfect, but not "manufactured" looking either.

8, never seen 12 bones on a box before but that's all right by me. it looks like the sauce is a little blotchy and areas on the front in the front row have no sauce, maybe just the photo or light

Score 8- Nice color on the ribs.

7. Too many ribs. Put in only the best 6 add a few more greens and it would have been a better score. Maybe a little less sauce before turn in

I really like this presentation. Both sections are from the same rack. Not mix & match. The cuts are surgical. And you let the ribs speak for themselves, minimal use of parsley. "9"

Good looking box of ribs but a little too much sauce.....8.
3/30/2013 03:50:57 pm
8 - look a little pale. Box is too full.

Score: 9 - Color is excellent, slicing is even, placement is uniform, delicious looking box. Nice job.

Good looking box. Ribs have a uniform color and cut and there are an adequate number of pieces for a judging table. The sauce does not seem to be to heavy. I like this box.
3/31/2013 04:40:55 am
Score a 9!! Good looking box. Looks as if each row of ribs are from the same slab. Hard to do, I feel. The grazing table will love the extra ribs in box. Where can I taste these??

8 - very good.

9 - Consideration should be given to the symmetry of the presentation. The two pieces on the right side causes the balance to be distorted. Using eight pieces instead of twelve might have work for a better visual appearance and not looked overcrowded.

I would give this box an 8. Ribs look great but they apprear to be sauced unevenly.
4/1/2013 10:09:57 am
Way too much in box. Sauce appears thicker in middle of rib and some appear to have no sauce or rub

Score = 9: I kind of waffled between an 8 and 9 here. The sauce is looks a little uneven, but overall these ribs look so great I had to go with the 9.
4/2/2013 07:01:55 am
8 sauce is blotched needs to be more uniform

8. Gorgeous ribs but the box looks overstuffed with so many bones in it. The sauce is also a wee bit uneven. But I would look forward to eating one of these at the table.

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. ;-)
