8 eye goes the that large black spot that should not be there
4/28/2013 08:57:34 am
Not sure why dark spot was left on but very unattractive took away from presentation without a doubt.would go 6.6.5

9 - Looks delicious.
4/28/2013 09:37:34 am
6 - Look raw. Don't look done at all. Maybe just the picture but don't look appetizing

9 The photo is overexposed but wow, this looks perfect. Now, taste and texture of course I don't know but that might make a difference.

7 - light and artificial.

8 picture is horrible so I am guessing on true appearance. Shapes look even.

9. Thease ribs are just begging to be tried! Good job with the arrangement. Ribs aren't over-sauced.

7 - glaze set looks great. They just don't look as though I could really enjoy eating them.

8 These look like they came out of a water smoker. No real bark or color to speak of. That being said, if this is how the cook wants them to be they look pretty good. Again some pretty uneven cuts and do try to wipe the big hunks of soot off. I bit into a otherwise nice piece of chicken at a contest this weekend that ended up like eating sand because of the soot.

7. Probably higher in person. Bad picture makes it difficult to judge. Remove the large black specks.

Score 8. This box would look better with less ribs and by being more even balanced. More is not always better.

The very light color leads me to think they are going to be undercooked, I know that will be tested on the tenderness score but my eyes are telling me that now in the appearance score. An extra 20 seconds lining up the front row would get your score from a above average 7 up to a very good 8.

8 - uneven cuts.

6 - Too many in the box and they look odd and disorganized.

Score = 7, big dark speck on 2nd rib from the left. Attention to details like this get higher scores.

I would give this box a 7. The ribs are very light in color.

6, and that's being generous. Sorry, the ribs just don't look that good to me, but the nice portion of 10 ribs was thoughtful of you!

7. Pale color not appetizing

7 - Close to giving this a 6. Ribs this color do not look appetizing, and gives the impression they are undercooked.

SCORE/REASONS: 8 - looks slightly dry to me, coloration is fairly consistant, slices could be more even, but they appear consistant, I'm not crazy about the color but that is probably the photograph(I hope!).

7 - The ribs are not cut the same. Some are cut at an angle while others are cut straight across. It might be the picture, but the ribs look really red.

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. ;-)
