I would score this box a 9. Great color and amount of sauce.
10/29/2013 11:28:23 pm
7 - Ribs are uneven and arrangement does not look appetizing. Don't understand the curved cutting of the two center ribs.

8 looks like some scorching and gloppy sauce

Score/Reasons = 7; Now wow factor; ribs look okay but don't make me want to eat them;

Score/Reasons = 9. A little dark and some folks will quibble about the different sizes, but appears to be excellent ribs.
10/30/2013 01:37:41 am
Score box an 8. The ribs are unevenly cut. They appear to be overlyt sauced and silghtly burnt.
10/30/2013 01:52:27 am
7 - dark - don't like to see the side of the ribs.
10/30/2013 01:55:40 am
8 - Entry looks very good, would suggest the sauce is very dark and uneven. Sauce appears thick like jam.

Score/Reasons: 7 - nice color and judicious use of sauce, but the spartan layout and the mutant sickle-shaped ribs cause major distractions to appearance.
10/30/2013 03:56:53 am
6 took dark, dry looking and the arrangement is not attractive.
10/30/2013 04:36:55 am
8 - A little over sauced and uneven pieces, but good looking box.
10/30/2013 05:42:27 am
I'd score this a 7. Garnish is nice, color a bit dark, sizes are not uniform, sauce looks good and the entry looks appetizing.
10/30/2013 07:51:01 am
Score 8. The dark meat/sauce, size of the ribs, and the box layout does not make this an attractive box.
10/30/2013 07:57:11 am
Score/Reasons = 6, the ribs appear to be cut oddly and the one in the front looks a bit dry. Some of the others look like the sauce burnt a bit.

Score 8 A little too dark, looks overcooked or over sauced. Bottom piece looks dry.

7. Uneven appearance
10/30/2013 10:29:36 am
8 - Uneven sauce.
David - CBMJ/KCBS
10/30/2013 10:36:52 am
Score - 7 - size and shape all over the wall. Need more meat than garnish showing.

Score = 7: Cuts look ragged and uneven. Size isn't very uniform. Color isn't uneven. The overall effect of this makes the box look sloppy.
10/31/2013 06:20:26 am
I give this box a 7. Would like to give it a 6.5. Do not like the varoius sizes, and spreading them out seems to hurt even more. Uneven cuts

7 - No pull back on bones makes me think underdone and tough, combined with dark color makes me think scorched.

Score/Reasons = 6; leaning towards a 5. The ribs do not look appealing. Sauce is very dark, and a few ribs show that the sauce was not applied evenly. The odd configuration just draw attention that each rib was poorly sliced. One rib is half hidden under the garnish.

Score/Reasons = 8, The ribs are too dark which does not allow the rib meat to show through. These ribs do not cause me to really want them and they look similar to other ribs presented.
Matt KCBS CBJ

Score/Reasons = 6, overcooked, crooked cuts, sauce is blotchy
Jeff KCBS CBJ
11/5/2013 11:55:07 am
score/reason 7 looks over done and dark in color,cuts could be straighter and ribs more uniform in sizes

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. ;-)
