7- Color is a little dark and looks to have some fat that hasn't been rendered out. Maybe a little too much sauce.

I give this one an 8. The various sizes hurt the box.

7 - The photo may have an overall yellow color that is causing some of the off-putting thoughts, but the ribs also appear to be way over sauced.

score/Reason = 7/ribs are of different sizes, not trimmed neatly, and appear overly sauced.
2/26/2014 02:14:37 pm
8-looks good, nice glaze, ribs appear random from different racks maybe

Score 7. Reasons: Off color sauce, too much sauce "painted on" and uneven color of the meat. Not much appeal to this entry.

Score/Reasons = 6, One of the bottom ribs appears to be cooked more than the other, this is shown by the amount of bone showing, which is more than the other ribs. The color is not uniform. There is too much sauce and it is not applied evenly, which make the meat unappetizing.

Saucing the bones makes it look sloppy. Not much care in box placement.
2/28/2014 01:00:13 am
1 - Only four samples

Score/Reasons = 7, just above average to me, brush marks in the sauce and not lined up. Take more time and care with the box and your score would be an 8/9
3/4/2014 06:52:45 am
Score/Reasons 7 (and gracious at that) nice shine, but just something odd about the color. Not sure if they are all from the same rack.
3/5/2014 01:36:40 am
Score: 6 Forefront end pieces look dried out, almost burnt. Uneven coloring throughout. Sauce looks uneven.

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. ;-)
