7, maybe even an 8. But first appearance a 7. The meat itself looks pretty good but obviously from varying racks as some have bone extending and others don't. I would think it would get varying scores from judges on tenderness as some seem to be more done then others. Sauce not uniform over each rib.

8. Ribs are evenly sized and look good in the box. Dark color and exposed rib bones could mean the meat is overcooked.
5/15/2013 12:17:02 am
8 - Sauce looks a little thick and uneven.
5/15/2013 12:33:08 am
8 - good but not magical. purely subjective.

8 looks good but i don't personally like seeing the bone end. gives the rib an "overcooked" appearance.
5/15/2013 01:23:52 am
Score: 8 Work on your slices being a bit more even and this is there. The ribs look awesome. Good color and pullback on the bones.

Score/Reasons = 9, Looks dadgum appetizing to me! Not perfect, and I'm not crazy about the bones sticking out on the top not being similar, but I can't wait to try one!

8........Nice color. Looks moist. Meat pulled back from the bone. Sauce is goopy in spots. Even cuts.

7 Color is good and sauce about right but this box has a "mixed and match" look. That is, the rack was sliced but then the ribs were mixed in the arrangement. And please use a sharp knife next time.

Score/Reasons: 8 - nicely arranged box of ribs. Color appears rather dark.
5/15/2013 05:17:22 am
Score/Reasons = 8 - these ribs look great and would easily have earned a 9 from me if they weren't just coated in sauce.

Score / Reasons = 8 Some areas of the ribs look to me a little dry. Could be the sauce is not applied evenly.
5/15/2013 10:13:23 am
score = 8, looks a little over-cooked to me

5/15/2013 01:31:52 pm
8 - Uniform cuts, good color, looks juicy and not over sauced.
5/15/2013 01:56:34 pm
9 Good rib box.

I'd give it an 8. The sauce could be a little more evenly applied, but other than that it looks great.

9 excellent color and presentation

Score/Reason: I would give this box a 9. Looks Great!

Score/Reasons = 8; May have given it a 9, but for me there is too much sauce and I can not see the meat.
5/16/2013 10:57:07 am
Score 7. Reasons: The ends of the ribs, not hidden by the sauce, seem to be burnt and overcooked. They may score high in taste and/or tenderness, but the appearance is not enticing.
5/16/2013 04:33:53 pm
Score/Reasons = 7. Neat box, like lettuce vs parsley. Meat looks dark (dry) around edges.
5/17/2013 01:24:58 pm
a 6. The bottom row is mainly hidden from view and the left top knife cut is ragged. The color is even, spacing is good and it looks moist. I cannot make out the garnish from the photo.

9-Look delicious. I want some! Very nice presentation.

Score/Reasons = 8. Nice color. good knife work. Well arranged. Too much bone is showing. Garnish is good. This could be a 9

score/reason 7 cuts could be a little more uniform, some bones showing some not makes it look sloppy
5/21/2013 06:57:01 am
Score/Reason = 7, some have the bone showing while other don't. sauce looks goopy but that could be due to the photo angle. Darker edges on the bone ends gives the impression of hard bark.

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. ;-)
