Score/Reasons = 8; ribs look well prepared but there is too much sauce and I can't see the meat underneath the top.

SCORE - 7 - above average, back 2 on left a tad overdone. I don't mind the exposed bones.
6/10/2013 04:42:50 pm
7 - nice uniform cuts, looks like over sauced and sauce burned, not a tasty appearance
6/10/2013 04:52:04 pm
6 burnt looking edges and back row looks black
6/10/2013 11:43:10 pm
8, possibly a 9 in person. Nice arrangement and even sized ribs. Sauce looks okay but can't tell for sure if the outside is burned or not. Still a good looking bunch of ribs that I would love to taste.

Score/Reasons: 8 These are pretty uneven in finish and really dark (maybe better in person) and a bit oversauced.
6/11/2013 12:53:11 am
9 - I want a taste.

an 8. Looks moist, good placement, even color but bottom pieces are narrower than top ones. I always get suspicious when ribs are substantially hidden from view that there may be flaws under the top row - like ragged edges or missing meat. I have to push back these thoughts and judge what I see. Also this arrangement is popular and a different layout can catch a judges attention in a positive manner.

Score/Reasons: 9. Super looking box! This would be a drool-starter for me!

Score/Reasons = 8, the color is uneven. The ribs in the back look to be darker color and the ends on the ones in the front are also of a darker color. The ribs also look over sauces giving it a slippery appearance.

8, Nice box, just wish I could see the rib in the upper left corner better. It looks darker than the rest. All the back ribs look different than the front ones.

Score = 8 Color looks uneven on the ribs.
6/11/2013 03:45:19 am
Score=9. Good color, uniform appearance, and the "right" amount of sauce.

Score 7. Reasons: both ends of the rib appear overcooked and even burnt. It appears that the cook overdid these ribs and then tried to place a heavy coat of sauce in them to cover up the overcooking.
6/11/2013 08:04:05 am
8......I like the moist look of the meat, but looks a little over cooked on some pieces.
6/11/2013 09:35:58 am
7, I liked the way the meat was arranged in the box, but the sauce is sloppy and the meat looks over cooked in some areas.
6/11/2013 10:30:30 am
Another nice box, however the ribs look slightly charred on the outside. Probable 8.
6/11/2013 12:39:47 pm
8- Very good color, though a little uneven. Nice uniformity of ribs, look juicy. Great job!
6/11/2013 01:29:29 pm
8 Ribs too dark, irregular sauce

7 - Above average. Parts of the ribs look overcooked and slices aren't quite even.

8....Equal size ribs. Would have nice color if not for the chard sauce.
6/13/2013 01:41:22 am
Scrore/Reasons = 8, nice color except for the dark areas at the ends. I'd definately want to try one of these ribs.

7 - At first glance the box looks very appetizing but then I noticed a few flaws. The bottom left & bottom middle ribs looks burnt. Top left & middle also look burnt. Also some uneven sause on the ribs.

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. ;-)
