6 cut very uneven, placent is poor and several jagged edges (tags) color is uneven with pieces or clumps on them doesn't look like the person cared and just threw them in the box

Another box with Illegal foreign object (foil). I'd ask the table captain to get a ruling from the contest rep.

5, maybe 6 in real life. Was this a real turn-in box? I'm trying very hard, but failing, to find something good to say about it. Ok, there's 7 pieces which means the table captain can have a rib...if (s)he wants it. The ribs were irregularly, but not heavily, sauced.

5. The foil is very neat. Need to work on the knife skills - even, smooth slicing will enhance the appearance score. Even up the color and the sauce to get a higher score. Clean any visible bits and sauce up before turn-in.

DQ for foil. Take away the foil and it's a 5. Please, sharpen your knife.

Cuts look ragged and the sauce application is uneven. I'd give it a 7.

SCORE/REASONS: 6 - While these look like they have the potential to score quite high in taste/tenderness categories -- they aren't much to look at.

7- add a garnish not tinfoil, Please!
Jim H - CBJ SBN/KCBS

Score/Reasons: 7/ribs are poorly cut/separated with ragged edges; the ribs are not symmetrically placed in the box, which makes it look sloppy!
4/9/2013 10:54:20 am
5 - very sloppy. Please become a judge and you will be able to learn from the experience what other teams turn in and your efforts will be rewarded, good luck!

7. I hate to judge so low but the cuts and sizes are pretty ruff and the sauce looks really uneven. On the plus side they have great color

5....Not any positives on this box.

6 - the meat looks dry and the cuts look rough. The size of the cut ribs are not even thus making alignment in the box off.
4/10/2013 12:34:43 pm
8 Pieces look as though they would be a tad tough. A different cut would make the pieces appear a little more meaty and desirable.

score/ reason 6. not uniform, looks like you need a sharper knife

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. ;-)
