8. Good color nice arrangement and look moist. However, knife skills produced tapering, not parallel, cuts on some ribs.

9 - I'm sure you'll hear about the odd cuts from at least one judge - but overall the presentation is good and the ribs have a perfect consistent color.

Very nice, cuts could be straighter but probably what you had to deal with, 8.

9-like the look of the color
2/26/2014 04:02:49 pm
Score 8. Reasons: The dry look of the top areas with the wet sauce on only part of the ribs with the crusty look on the balance is not appealing.

Score/Reasons = 9, cuts not even, but these ribs look dad-gum good to me. Might look a pinch dry, but might just be the photo.

Score/Reasons = 8, just a bit too much sauce. It makes the meat too shiny. May be the pic, but looks like some of sauce has settled into puddles

Score = 9, Cuts aren't quite straight, but with such great looking ribs I can overlook that small flaw.

Score/Reasons: 8. Would like to see the slices more uniform
2/27/2014 11:14:12 pm
8 - It appears the sauce is pooled in the center of the rib.

Cuts not so good, you've lost the ideal slab look, more a bunch of singles stacked higher or lower.

score/reason 6 looks like the rub is thick, over sauced ribs not cut straight giving a uneven look to the appearance, no wow facture for me just average looking box of ribs

Score/Reasons = 9, great color, ribs look tender but not over cooked, box is nice and full
3/4/2014 06:46:25 am
Score/Reasons 7 Looks a little dry, or maybe it is just the type od sauce used. Arrangement could be a little more together.
3/5/2014 01:48:24 am
Score: 8 Nice color and looks moist.

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. ;-)
