8 - Sized evenly, don't appear to be over sauced. Color should be darker and more uniform.

Score/Reasons = 9, Bad picture does not do this box justice. Good color, light glaze.

9! Good arrangement, even color, look moist, good knife skills. Attention to detail is evident as the pattern is creative (ie. a vee at the bottom and the two narrow ribs at the edges).

Score/Reasons = 8, these ribs look very good, but just a little too "red" to be a 9. Might be a 9 in person.

Score/Reasons = 8, poor photo, but meat looks very dry and uneven coloration. Still looks pretty appetizing though.

9.....Nicely sauced. Good color with good even cuts.
3/19/2014 03:37:28 am
7 - looks bland, not enough moisture present
3/19/2014 04:35:50 am
8 - excellent presentation, nice sizes, looks great. It could be the picture, but the color looks off for a nine.
3/19/2014 04:53:37 am
Score 9 - They look like they might be a little dry, but they are well presented and texture score will grade the quality of cooking.

Nice cuts but still a ragged edge here and there. Color makes me think of tomato sauce. You've lost the slab look and is just a bunch rib bones from several racks.
3/19/2014 06:30:57 am
9 - nice looking box, uniform
3/19/2014 07:20:35 am
9 - Very nice!

Judging on apearance only: An excellent entry. Job well done !!!

very high 8, Color, texture, cuts spot on.

Score/Reasons = 7 Good color but dull looking. Arrangement does seem to flow, as in the ribs were not placed in the box in the order they came off the rack.

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. ;-)
