I would score this box a 9.

At a recent contest, I was asked by several cooks how I'd thought judges would react to no garnish. I told them that the rules say garnish is optional and that judges are to judge the meat and not the garnish, unless, of course, it is illegal garnish. However, I also told them that while I though most judges understood this, I could not promise that all judges did.

Score/Reasons = 8; dark picture, but sauce is a little gloppy and not evenly applied; also, the placement of the rib on the right is out of line with the rib on the left;

Score/Reasons = 9. May be lower in person. Sauce looks a little uneven and ribs looked dark. Hard to tell due to the exposure. Neaten up the saucing on the bones before turn in.

This box is an 8. The ribs appear to have holes in them. The color is nice. the main ribs are cut evenly, but the side ribs are uneven.
10/30/2013 01:51:20 am
8 - would have been a 9 if the two sideways ribs had been left out.
10/30/2013 01:53:14 am
9 - Nice presentation, even color, even sized pieces.

Score/Reasons: 9 - nice looking box of ribs. Good color, Judiciously applied sauce...not thick & gloppy.

7 Looks a little dark, nice shine. 2 ribs on the side distract from the appearance.
10/30/2013 04:16:54 am
Score 9 - I almost scored this an 8 because I am not sure this is completely cooked, but bumped it for being well organized in the box without the greenery.
10/30/2013 04:33:08 am
7 - A little over sauced. Missing meat and shorter ribs on the sides don't add to the overall appearance. But a good looking box otherwise.
10/30/2013 05:15:52 am
Going to assume the competition did not require garnish. If that's the case I'd score this a 8. I like the uniformity, the color is excellent, the presentation makes it look appetizing and juicy - just a touch too much sauce.
10/30/2013 07:31:36 am
Score 9. The ribs look great, but any more sauce or darkness on the top I would have deducted one point as the meat is almost covered by the dark sauce.
10/30/2013 07:53:00 am
Score/Reasons = 9, looks great.

Score = 8: Photo is a little dark so I can't get a good sense of the color, in person this probably would be a 9.
10/31/2013 06:13:25 am
I give this box a 9. Meat looks moiste and the ribs are a little dark, but I give that to the photo. Cuts look nice and even

Score/Reasons = 8; poor quality photo, it may be a 9. Can not tell if sauce was applied evenly, or if it is too excessive. All the ribs look very uniform, and each row looks like the ribs were cut from the same rack. I like that at least two ribs are shown with the meat exposed.

Score/Reasons = 7, the ribs are rather dark and appears to be over sauced. The side ribs are not lined up evenly

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. ;-)
