7 - too orange - might have trimmed the bones better.
2/26/2014 02:30:53 am
8 - Nice looking box except for the uniformity of the ribs.

7. Good color, nice arrangement. Look moist. However, ribs are of different widths and the knife skill on the lower left rib produced a bow rather than a straight line.

Score/Reasons = 8, Tough to score due to the poor photo. Color looks good, light glaze.

9- Nice cuts, uniform in size, good color, overall good ribs.
2/26/2014 04:30:13 am
I give this one an 8.

Score/Reason - 7; This site is for judging Competition presentations, with that said, more attention should be given to this category that is being presenting. Appearance is what is being judged and it should be first rate. This presentation lacked appeal and the arrangement of the pieces were loosely formed. (symmetry and neatness of box0

8 - the ribs look well cooked and sauced - but the whole presentation is a bit 'tossed in the box'.

I would have put the bottom row on top, they look like they are cooked properly. Good looking but a 7.

Score/Reason = 7/Shoddy placement and the sauce looks a little gloppy! However, the picture is really blurry, which doesn't help!
2/26/2014 01:55:36 pm
7-nice color and sauce is not too heavy, just a little sloppy on placement in box, although garnish isn't supposed to be judged, use it to your advantage to help support the meat

Score 9. Great color, nice amount of sauce, good looking box. Poor picture.
2/27/2014 12:23:59 am
8 - Unequal cuts.

7.....Meat may be undercooked. Uneven sauce. Black stuff under the left rib is distracting and not very appetizing.

Score/Reasons = 8, looks pretty good for the out-of-focus photo that it is. Not evenly sauced, but still looks appetizing.

Score/Reasons = 8, the color is off, too red. May be better in person.

Score = 8, Rib on right hand side is lighter in color.
2/27/2014 06:36:09 am
A blurry photograph makes it difficult to evaluate. Cuts appear even and color seems good. I might give it a 9 if I could see the entry better.

score/reason 7 maybe 8 in person,cuts could be straighter, more uniform in size, sauce looks a little splotchy

SCORE/REASON: 7 - Nice looking ribs. More attention to details such as uniform saucing and rib placement will help improve score.

Online BBQ Judge Sign-up
You are REQUIRED to register as a BBQ Critic Online Judge to be allowed to judge boxes on this site. Click here to sign up now.
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. ;-)
