Based on the picture I give an 8. Maybe a nine in person

Score - 8 Dark color(maybe camera). Some ribs have protruding bones - some do not and large difference in length. Nice box

8, meat appears a bit dark in color, but may be due to blurriness of picture, ribs appear to be moist

It would be totally unfair to score this box based on this poor picture. It is hard to judge any entry fairly with the pictures we, as judges, receive, but this one is impossible. NO SCORE !!!

Score 7-8? Poor photo quality makes it hard to judge color, but from what I can tell it looks good. The tapering down to the smaller sized ribs at the end of the rack is not something you usually see in competition ribs.

8 - nice box, good color. Adjusting the top portion where the pieces are even and switching there position to the bottom would make for a more uniform presentation.

9..Nice color. Even sized ribs with nice clean cut.
7/7/2013 02:05:12 am
Can't see well enough to judge.
7/7/2013 02:08:36 am
an 8. Good color, good layout, look moist but knife skills could be improved as sizing is uneven (ie. wide, narrow, and tapered).

Well disregarding the crappy picture, nice cuts, good even sized pieces. Color and texture look appetizing. Exposed bones on only a few ribs are hurting the looks. Can't really tell if your sauce is gloppy and uneven.
7/7/2013 03:41:33 am
7 Unable to judge realistically due to poor picture quality. Ribs do appear to be too dark to be tender and over sauced to hide it.
7/7/2013 03:49:20 am
8, possibly a 9 in person. Ribs are uniform and well spaced in the box. Picture may hint at a little too much sauce.

Score/Reasons = 8, Bad picture may warrant a higher or lower score in person. Nice color, sauce may be a little heavy.

Score = 9; Giving the benefit of the doubt on this one as the photo is very dark and that makes it hard to get a good look at the ribs. From what I can see color is excellent, cuts are a little uneven, not enough to bring the score down though.
Bill KCBS CMBJ/CTC

Jim H - CBJ SBN/KCBS

Score/Reasons = 9, Nice color and they look well-prepared, although the picture is dark and the meat isn't visible, only the top.
7/7/2013 10:33:21 am
8 - a little dark, but may be the pic. An abundant amount of meat, makes we want to taste.

Poor picture, but I can see that it is a nice entry - scored an 8; uniform cuts of meat, extra pieces for table capt, centered nicely in box, but just a touch too much sauce for my liking.

Score/Reasons = 7, even though the pic is dark, the ribs appear to be over sauced. If the ribs are going to be presented with bone showing, then have all the ribs have bone showing. Or, don't have any bone showing.

8. Picture is a little dark/foggy, but you can still see it is a pretty nice looking box.

Score/Reasons = 8, VERY difficult to tell much as it is so dark, but from what I can see it looks pretty good and moist. Just not excellent.

8 a little heavy with sauce
Deb KCBS MCBJ/CTC

Score/Reasons: 9. Giving the benefit of the doubt to the cook-this is a REALLY poor photo. Regardless, these ribs show good color and appear well cooked.

score/reason 8 sauce is a little thick, and the cuts could be straighter, making more uniform sizes. color looks great,box looks neat.
7/9/2013 08:52:16 am
8-Another great looking box of ribs. Might be the photo, but appear heavily sauced.

9 - From what I can see thru the haze it looks good

Score/Reasons: 8 - Marginal photograph (very foggy) of what I can only guess, in reality, is a pretty decent box of rips.

Score/Reasons = 9 - good color, no reason to not give it a 9

7 (dark picture) maybe an 8 - As a judge I'd like to see a little less sauce and straighter cutting of the ribs. As a Table Captain, I always welcome a box with any amount of ribs over the mandatory 6.
7/14/2013 01:44:50 pm
Nice color but appears the glaze was brushed on at the last minute instead of setting with heat. I would prefer the ribs to be more uniform in size, however, the slicing was excellent and pieces match together very well. Overall a decent box which I would give a 6 or 7.

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. ;-)
