4/28/2013 08:58:43 am
Very dark and over sauced would go 6-6.5

6 or 7. Too dark. Looks oversauced. Too much empty space in box.

7 - In favor of the cook. Wow those look dark. Odd placement in the box.

9 I wish the photo were better but those ribs are so well matched, with nice cutting and placement. The sauce is fine, just distorted by the camera flash. (Someone in these contests must learn more about photography.)

9 - love the color.

I would give this box a 7. Ribs are to small for me and they look too dark. Maybe just the photo.

7 another horrible picture but sauce looks too thick and char seems too heavy (burned).

6 possibly 7 in person. Ribs look burnt and sauce doesn't help much.

Lots of open space here. You could get 4 More good looking ribs in the box. Fill the box with great looking food! 7

5 points. Very dark color, looks over cooked, to small, need to fill box more.

7 - Need a lot of napkins on these ribs. Sauced heavily to hide being over cooked?

7 These ribs are pretty dark and way over-sauced. All this could be the result of the pic but this is the best we can do with the pic we have.

6. May be higher in person. Dark picture makes the darker style ribs even darker. Sauce appears very heavy.

Score 7. The amount of ribs in this box would allow them to be spread out so the lower one can be viewed. It appears the cook is trying to hide the lower ribs. Also please reduce the amount of sauce on the ribs,

A little on the smeary saucey side. Other than that I have nothing to nit pick about. Good job!

7- Look burned, over sauced, and off-center. Maybe a 6 in person.

7. Appears over-sauced, and not spaced well in the box.

Score = 7, ribs look very dark, might be a little from poor lighting in the photo. Cuts are a little uneven as well.
4/29/2013 07:55:26 am
I would give this box an 8. The ribs appear to be cooked perfectly, but there looks to be to much sauce for my liking.
4/29/2013 09:49:53 am
not a good photo really don't want to score this\

7 - It might be the picture, but the ribs look really dark. From what I can see, two have sauce on the bone, and one doesn't... the devil is in the details.

7 - Hard to judge due to the poor quality of the photo. From what I can judge, it looks like too much sauce has been applied.

SCORE/REASONS: 6 - extremely difficult to see much with these ribs as the lighting is so bad, but they look over-sauced and a bit dark to be very appetizing

5 - The ribs are very dark in color, shiny and slick looking. The picture is dark but I think the color of the ribs is due to the sauce. The ribs to not look appetizing to me. Way too much sauce.

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. ;-)
