Score: 9--good looking box; nice evenly cooked ribs-no excess sauce, no excess garnish. turned ribs shows confidence in rib cook quality coming from the cook. an excellent box, looking great, and making me salivate...

9 - Although I'm not a big fan of ribs on their sides, the box looks good and the ribs look tasty and well cooked.

9 - Great presentation. I like the fact that you chose to chance a new look from the norm.

I give this one an 8. Like the look of the ribs, but not even. Thinness of the ribs not a good look when turned up.

Score 9. Wow! how could anyone find a problem with this entry. Nice even cut, excellent color, beautiful light coating of sauce, and a fantastic display of the entry.

8-needs sauce on edges
1/30/2014 02:02:18 am
Not a fan of the side view! It shows how thin the meat is as well as the unappetising knuckles. Cuts and texture are pretty good, but placement is kinda haphazard.

8- Ribs look good, nice color and shine. The reason for the 8 is the two ribs on the sides; they taper too much on the ends and appear dry although it could be the photo.

Score = 8 , Nice presentation. The two ribs on their sides had smears of sauce on them. If the sauce is supposed to be there, make sure it covers the entire rib. If not, make sure to clean them up prior to turning the box in. Attention to small details like this is what differentiates an 8 from a 9.

Score/Reasons: 8/The only thing I can see wrong is that the ribs at the top are smaller than the rest.

Score/Reasons = 7, tops look moist, but sides look very dry. Uneven cuts, uneven sizes, and unevenly sauced.
2/2/2014 02:06:47 am
I would give this a 9 . It has good color and I like the way the rib was laid on it side to allow me to see the color of the meat. good job
2/3/2014 12:39:20 am
Score/Reasons=8, Looks nice. The ribs on their sides could have been better and that's the reason for the 8 instead of 9.
2/3/2014 05:23:26 am
Score/Reasons = 7 Good color, more care taken on the arrangement, and ribs turned on side detract from overall appearance.
2/3/2014 10:53:28 am
8 - More attention to detail in the arrangement of pieces and application of sauce

BBQ Critics: Compare your scores with other judges. If you are way off from the average of the combined scores, take a second look and see if there is room for improvement. After reading comments/scores, ask yourself, "Did I score too high? Did I score too low?" Always look for ways to improve. :-)
Comments are closed.
WELCOME to the Judge My Box section on BBQ Critic. This is a great place for competition cooks to submit boxes and get feedback on appearance scores from Certified BBQ Judges.

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. ;-)
