I would give this one a high 7. Meat looks good, but the spread in sizes and then having the sizes mixed makes it look like the box was just thrown together.

8 - Slight dry appearance. Showing the side confirms. Not over sauced.

7. Good arrangement, even color, look moist. However, the ribs are of differing widths and the edges have uneven knife cuts.

Score/Reasons = 6, just average in appearance to me. Might be great for taste and tenderness, but appearance needs some work. The ribs look overcooked on the outside, cuts are uneven and placement in the box is sloppy.

7....Meat looks moist. Decent color. Ribs don't match up. Haphazard prepared box.
3/19/2014 03:40:08 am
9 - good smoke ring, meat looks good and meaty, dry look not bad for this meat
3/19/2014 04:37:51 am
9 - I think the presentation could improve; however, the ribs in the box get my nine.
3/19/2014 05:26:21 am
8 pretty nice size pork

Nice meaty looking ribs. Cuts are pretty ragged, and placement in box is haphazard at best. Thanks for not glopping sauce all over them.
3/19/2014 06:33:06 am
7 - looks dry and don't like the rib that is turned sideways.
3/19/2014 07:31:38 am
7 - Looks thrown into box, dry, and little effort on presentation.
3/19/2014 09:41:35 am
8-edges need some sauce
3/19/2014 04:14:45 pm

score / reason 7 looks burnt and over cooked looks dry , could have been placed in box straighter and cut more uniform
Jim H - CBJ SBN/KCBS

Score/Reason = 6/Ribs are mediocre looking and not well-placed in the box. They don't have any "pop," either in the placement or in the way they look.

Meat looks good but more effort is needed in the presentation.
3/25/2014 01:36:20 am
Score/Reasons = 6 looks dry, dull. Unbalanced arrangement. One shorter rib then a longer rib then short, instead of flowing together.

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. ;-)
