Score = 7. The meat looks a little dark and the finish is a little heavy. I like the cut on pieces and would like to see what it would taste like.

7, irregular shape and a bit dark

8 entirely too much sauce but ribs look evenly cut and well presented.
7/28/2013 08:08:18 am

Score/Reasons: 8 - nice presentation for this box of ribs. Nice to see more than the minimum 6 required. Sauce, however, appears heavy and gloppy. Sauce also is uneven on the two left top ribs.

Score - 8 - Sauce or glaze is way too heavy and takes away from the presentation.
7/28/2013 09:04:30 am
appearance score of 8, I like the glass look. I would have gave it a 9 if it wasn't for the uneven ribs. I like the ribs to be uniformed.
7/28/2013 09:05:56 am
a 7. Even color and good popular layout. Look moist. However, knife cuts on second left rib not parallel and they all look overly sauced.
7/28/2013 09:32:04 am
7 - Looks oversauced.
7/28/2013 09:36:22 am
Score 8 Reason: I'm sure there are some great looking rib with good color hiding under the BBQ sauce. I would just like to be able to see them. Suggestion: Lighten up on the sauce.
7/28/2013 09:58:38 am
Great looking box, nice glaze. I would give this a 9 for sure.

8.......Nice color and shine. Meat pulled back from the bone. Goopy, uneven sauce.

8. Nice to see bone tips showing, but super heavy glaze makes it impossible to see the rib underneath. Looks like overpowering glaze.

Score/Reasons = 8 - Very good, maybe a tad heavy handed with the sauce, and they do look a tad darker than ribs that I would score a 9.
7/28/2013 02:35:12 pm
8 - too much sauce otherwise it would be a 9. I like that you showed meat drawn up on the bones and your cuts look clean. I find the product to look appealing.

Score = 8 Color, Cuts and Sauce are uneven
7/28/2013 09:29:49 pm
Score/Reasons = 8, The photo is obviously not one of the best but... the color is a bit dark and some ribs have bones exposed and a few do not.

Score/Reasons = 8, picture is a little dark so score may be different in person. A bit heavy on the sauce.

Score/Reasons = 7, looks very moist, but too much sauce and not evenly spread. (photo quality won't allow me to tell much more)

Score/Reasons: 9, Ribs look great.
7/29/2013 02:46:44 am
The ribs look just good enough to eat. They have a nice mahagony color and are shiny. I would score this box a 9

Score/Reasons = 7, the ribs are simply over sauced which makes them look unappetizing.
7/29/2013 04:42:41 am
Score/reasons: 8, Nice looking box of ribs...enen sized and look to be cooked okay. Discounted from a 9 due to heavy sauce.
7/29/2013 05:27:25 am
Score 8 - Very saucy but looks pretty good, lots of meat per rib and nice color.

Scored a 7. The ribs are a very nice size, but way too much sauce - by looking at this entry, you can't even tell how moist it might be or the appearance of the meat itself.
7/29/2013 06:00:52 am
8 - Appear to be heavily sauced.
Bill KCBS MCBJ/CTC

8 - Sauce is a bit heavy and evenly applied
7/30/2013 05:31:27 am
7-8. May be just the lighting, but looks a tad dark. Hard to see the very back of the box.
7/30/2013 10:07:00 am
7 Ribs sauced too heavily,
7/30/2013 11:03:10 am
8 looks moist and good but various places look overdone

Nice full box, cuts look clean. Sauce is a little heavy and poorly applied. It's important to have a even glaze.
7/31/2013 07:41:17 am
Nice appearance. Pieces evenly cut and well presented. Good color with nice even glaze. A solid 9.
7/31/2013 01:50:50 pm
8 - meat looks moist, but slices are not uniform, with some bones showing some not, and the sauce looks blotchy -- heavy in some spots, light in others

score/reason 8 straighter cuts and aligned better at the bottom would have mad a better appearance

Score/Reasons: 7 These look way oversauced to me but what really caught my eye was a spot on the first rib on the front left that looked like it had a thumbprint in the sauce.

Score/Reasons = 8, A little too saucy for me. Watch out for the smudges, left side top row. A pitmaster who was putting in the effort for sure.

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. ;-)
