Score - 8 The addition of the shorter pieces at the top and bottom of the box takes away from the uniformity and balance of the presentation. Also, the 4 center ribs are a bit different in size and shape. Good color and glaze

Score/reasons: 9 Good looking box of ribs....mostly even cuts and not too much sauce.

6 - don't like orange color. don't want to see the edges, or, at least, glaze them. The box is overwhelmed by the ribs, narrow them.

6. Nice layout and look moist. Pieces are not all same size, some cuts are ragged and dark blotches detract from an otherwise nice color.

Score 8... in truth I may even score it a 7. NICE Color. But not well cut. Certainly the lowest rib is of a much smaller size and from the picture the only cut side I can see looks dry. And though consistent saucing doesn't usually matter to me. The inconsistency here does.

7 arrangement of the box , looks like the ribs are hanging somewhat out of the box.

8... Good color. Goopy sauce in spots. Top and bottom rib look out of place. Ribs look mismatched along the top.

Score = 7

8 - Great color, only drawback is the irregular cuts.

Yikes, just not a good look at all! Sizes and shapes are all over the place. Cuts are ragged. Sauce is kinda hit and miss.

Score/Reasons = 8, Nice looking meaty ribs. Sauce appears too heavy in a spot or two.
8/9/2013 04:49:00 am
9 - uniform placement of product, good color, somewhat even across all pieces of meat, cuts good, box looks appealing

Score = 8 Sauce is uneven, size of ribs uneven, cuts not straight, color uneven.

8 - Nice looking ribs. Appear moist. A little more uniformity in size

8 - The color is nice but the box lacks organization.
8/9/2013 09:13:45 am
Score 8. Reasons: I believe this box would look more organized if the ribs were placed three bottom and three top. With the ribs in this configuration the box appears crowded and disorganized. I would also like to see the sauce applied more evenly to the ribs.

7 - the dark bits look unappetizing, and both the light color and lack of pull-back makes me worry they're undercooked and going to be tough.

Score/Reasons: 7 - the ribs have a nice glaze, which is a good start; but most of them are cut unevenly and several have ragged edges.

Score 9. Reasons: NOT over-sauced! Yay. Meat looks moist and inviting.
8/10/2013 01:26:00 am
Score/Reasons = 7, odd sized ribs with odd placement in box. uneven sauce, one has a bunch of sauce and another looks like the sauce got wiped off from handling.

Score/Reasons = 6, The meat looks a bit dry. The ribs are not cut evenly and the sauce was not applied in a uniform manner.

score/reason 7 nice color and shine, sauce is a little blotchy ,cuts need to be straighter and more even making a better presentation.
8/11/2013 02:29:04 pm
score/reasons = 7 the various sizes of ribs and the sauce does not seem to be spread evenly heavy on some and very light on others some look overdone

7 - the ribs look meaty and possibly delicious tasting but the presentation needs work. I judged this past weekend (8/10) and the boxes used were smaller than usual. I can't tell by the picture if its a smaller box or the ribs are cut a little big. The sauce is a little uneven and the top and bottom ribs are not presented very well.

Score/Reasons = 6, front rib looks very dry, black spots on left rib, next to left rib and back rib are VERY distracting. Rib sizes are too dissimilar. Sauce not evenly applied. Average box of ribs - nothing else.

8, looks like it would taste good, but the cuts are not even and it looks "awkward" in the box
Shawn-KCBS CBJ and Comp Cook

Score/Reason: I would score this box an 8. Ribs have good color and look appealing!
Jim Harmon - CBJ SBN/KCBS

Score/Reasons = 8, The ribs are small and of odd shapes; the color is okay and the level of sauce is acceptable.

Score/Reason: 6 Not much is right with this box. The sauce is uneven, the cuts are really bad and the garnish while not judged detracts from the meat. There are also soot goobers on several pieces.

Score/Reasons = 7, would be an 8 if the cuts were a bit more even. The box looks a little hurried and sloppy. Meat looks to be above average, and the ribs are generously cut.
8/13/2013 04:44:42 am
8 unusual but nice box.
Steve R - KCBS CBJ

This box earned an 8 by me. The ribs look very appealing and moist, but they also appear to be "too big" for the box ( it looks over crowded) and they don't look very uniform in size.

Score/Reasons = 6, Box is very uneven. 4 judges getting Holywood cut ribs, and 2 getting scraps.

score / reasons = 7 Too light in color, not reasonably uniform in shape, sauce applied unevenly.

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. ;-)
