Score an 9, just for the creativity in the presentation. The ribs look well done and have a shine to them.

Score/Reasons = 7, The ribs are extremely over sauced and, to me, is not very appetizing., Putting so much sauce on the meat makes one think something is being hidden.
11/19/2013 03:20:38 am
Score/Reasons = 8, just a bit too much glaze
11/19/2013 03:28:43 am
7 - Way too much sauce, looks too dark and sticky to me.

Score/Reasons: 7, maybe 8 in person. Ribs are oversauced. Box has an unbalanced appearance. The layout arrangement may have been dictated by the vastly different lengths of the rib's bones used in this box. i.e., the left & right "vertical" ribs appear to be of different length that the "horizontal" ribs.

Score/Reasons = 7/Too much sauce and too dark; placement is a little sloppy! This is nitpicking, I know, but there has to be identifiable distinctions to separate the winners and losers.

7 Too much bark and heavy sauce appears to try to hide it.
11/19/2013 05:35:15 am
8- Sauced about right, samples are even, color seems dark - could also be the photo. Very Nice.
11/19/2013 06:32:13 am
Score 7. These ribs are buried in a, too dark, too thick , and too much sauce to score them any higher. It appears that with this heavy coating of sauce that they might be overcooked also.

Score = 8: Size of ribs is very uneven which doesn't look pleasing to my eye. Photo is kind of dark as well, hard to get a good look at the ribs. Sauce looks a little uneven as well.

11/20/2013 02:24:28 am

Score/Reasons = 9, looks moist and appetizing, bordering on too much sauce, but still excellent.

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. ;-)
