7 appear burnt and dry

8 Okay, that's brave, going without the garnish. I like that and it sure makes things easier for the judge. We're here to judge the meat not the green stuff. And I like the color and bark on those ribs. This might be a winner.

Score/Reasons: 7 - meat appears to be dry & unappealing.

SCORE - 8 Totally unfazed by the lack of garnish. Hard to tell from the picture but I think these are single-bone wide cut ribs which is cool, something different from the typical KCBS contest rib. These look great.

Score - 7 - color very uneven, ribs slightly unorganized in appearance,several look a bit dry
6/10/2013 04:40:29 pm
7 - ribs color to dark thus not appetizing, ribs do not look tasty, nice cuts
6/10/2013 04:50:06 pm
7. Too dark. Not appetizing looking
6/10/2013 11:40:24 pm
7. Not much for presentation. Nice sized ribs but they look dry and could be tough. Box looks crowded.

Score/Reasons: 7 These are pretty dark and tho the cuts appear pretty even the box looks pretty haphazard.

7 maybe 6 in person - Looks dry and uneven cuts. Strangely, I can't see one bone...

Score/Reasons = 9, may be lower in person. Difficult to judge from this angle. Double ribs are a nice change-up but more difficult to get the same size and color. Glaze is good without being heavy handed.

an 8. An original layout, even color, look moist but one slab is wholly exposed while the remainder are partly covered. I like the view of the edges as it shows knife skills more clearly. Possibly just six pieces would have been better as then they all could be evenly placed.

Score: 8; meat appears very slightly dry, but overall looks like something I'd be anxious to take a bite of. Not over-sauced, good color. Nice "judge's cut".

Score/Reasons = 6, the ribs really look dry and appear to be unevenly cut. It appears bone is visible on some of the ribs.

6-7, Would go possibly higher or lower if could see the whole picture. Looks thrown in together. Bad picture.

7 - Strange looking box. Ribs look dry and where are the rib bones?
6/11/2013 06:45:59 am
Score 7. Reasons: The ribs appear very dark and overcooked. This score is based on the partial poor picture and may do better if I could actually see the entry. Suggestion: If the cooks would review the pictures before they submit them I believe they would receive more accurate scores.

7..... uneven bbq sauce coverage and looks a little dry to me.
6/11/2013 09:20:14 am
7, The meat looks dried out and over cooked.
6/11/2013 12:34:32 pm
8- Color is good, but is a little uneven. The ribs look moist. Very good looking rib box.
6/11/2013 01:27:19 pm
6 Ribs look dry and quite possibly tough. No appeal!

7 at best....Dark color. Meat looks thin and dry. Boneless ribs? Burnt 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. ;-)
