Score - 9 - the ribs are different lengths, but the symmetry and balance of the presentation are there. Good color and glaze and good box.

Score/reason: Definitely a 9!! I love the presentation of the ribs and they look to be evenly (not over) sauced. Good job!

8 - the only thing I don't like is the 'alignment' of the groove thru the 'slab'. Looks artificial. Otherwise, very nice.

Score/Reasons = 9, I don't think there's much to say. Except my great disappointment at not being able to try one of these ribs.

Score = 9 Nice looking box of ribs

8 - A little over sauced. But great looking box.
8/9/2013 09:22:22 am
Score 9. Reason: these look like nice and meaty rims and even though the picture makes it slightly hard to judge these ribs online, I'm sure that the placement would be great if we were viewing the ribs at a contest. Suggestion: Please do not put any more sauce on the ribs than you have on this box. If they were covered with any more sauce than these ribs I would consider them over sauced.

Solid 9 - a bountiful layout that shows confidence in the whole rack, look juicy, great color.

9 perfect box! Beautiful color and looks delicious ! Garish is not to be judged but it frames your ribs perfectly. Looks like its all from one rack too. Really nice example of how a box should look

Score/Reason: 9 - nice looking box. Can't tell from the pic whether the sauce is too heavy, so beneefit of doubt goes to cook.

Score/Reasons = 8, nice looking arrangement and nice color on the ribs. Would have given a 9 if it wasn't for the groove running down the middle of the rack. I found that to be a distraction.

Score/Reasons = 9, The ribs really look impressive. I like the look cutting the ribs from the same slab gives. The ribs look good with the way they are sauced, evenly and not over sauced.

score/reason 8 good color and shine, sauce is getting a little on the thick side, ribs could be aligned a little straighter bottom three ribs are shifted to one side and not straight with the upper 3 ribs. would love to taste these ribs.
8/11/2013 02:35:30 pm
score/reasons 9 I like the layout of the ribs and the consistency of sauce

8 - Very nice lloking box. Ribs sit nicely on the garnish. I would have tried to get ribs more of the same size which then I would have given a 9.

Score/Reasons = 9, the ribs clearly came from the same rack, and are well presented. Nice color, a little too saucy for me, but not that bad.

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. ;-)
