7 - Lay out is a little strange to me, not eye catching at first glance. Looks like regular ribs that have been cut down.

8. Good color, look moist and the unique arrangement is pleasing to the eye. However, the knife cuts look a bit ragged.

Score/Reasons = 8, May be higher in person. Color is good, light saucing, needs a little sheen to make it look less dry.

9- Good looking box; the ribs have a good color, looks like they have some bark too. Could use a little shine to make them pop a little more.

I have to give this one an 8. The photo makes the ribs look a little dry. But the layout doesn't look good.

Score/Reason = 7/Ribs are of nice color but need to be cleaned up; there appear to be some stray pieces of something on a couple of them, and the rib in the upper right looks like it was pulled apart from another instead of cleanly cut.

8-color not bad, surface of meat looks a little dry

Score/Reasons = 9, a few ragged cuts, but these ribs look very appetizing to me. Lots of meat on these short things!

Score/Reasons = 7, the meat is a little too dark. Also, the meat was not cut smoothly. There are pieces of meat on the cut surface.

Score = 9: Nice looking baby backs, they look a little dry, but not enough to affect the score.
2/27/2014 06:44:46 am
Probably an 8. Cuts are more ragged than I like to see and meat appears dry. Having said that, ribs appear tender. Would like to have seen more glaze.

Score/Reasons = 7, Meat looks on the dry side. The portions (size of the ribs)are more than generous, but in this box less would have been more.

8 - Great looking ribs, but the presentation needs to be better. Consider placing the front three in the same direction as the back four.

Score/Reasons = 7,ribs look overcooked and dry. I like "dry" ribs, but these look too dry, sloppy presentation
3/4/2014 06:49:22 am
Score/Reasons 6 Ribs could have had a little more shine to make them more appealing. The arrangement does nothing for the entry.
3/5/2014 01:42:10 am
Score: 8 Looks very appetizing. Nice color.

I would score this box an 8. Ribs are a little to dark in color but it may just be the lighting in the photo.

SCORE/REASON: 6 Meaty Ribs. Ribs do not that eye appeal. A couple of ribs appear slightly over cooked or something, maybe knife issues. Need some uniformity in appearance.

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. ;-)
