9 looks perfect!

Score 7. The ribs appear overcooked and dry. I would suggest that the cook consider less ribs in this box. It would be much easier to organize the meat and the is no reason to place twice the required ribs in the box. I do not believe that the extra ribs will improve the score.

Although garnish is optional, the box looks bare without it. I'd give it a 7.

Nice full box of ribs. Ribs are uniform but it looks like they are over-sauced to cover up possibly being dry. 7

7. May be an 8 in person. The ribs appear to be nicely cooked, but the sauce overwhelms.Very clean box given all the sauce. Part of the problem is the photo quality.

8 - would like it less wet.

7 Tough one to call; too much light reflection in photo. Looks heavy on the sauce. Uniform size pieces, good cutting, rather brave to go without the garnish.

Dang, a dozen bones in one box, a first for me! I see some ragged edges and difference in placement of bottoms on the front row are not enhancing the look. Pretty saucy looking.

Uneven sauce application, and maybe a little too much sauce. I'd give it a 7 or 8.

7 - Too many ribs, no garnish. This looks like my take home box from the BBQ restaurant we just had dinner at.

Score/Reasons: 7/Too much sauce; I cannot see the meat due to the amount of sauce on the ribs.

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. ;-)
