7 - It may be the coloring in the picture, but the char looks too dark and the sauce seems to give the ribs almost a yellow appearance. Bottom line these don't look like ribs I really want to eat.

Score/Reasons = 7, piece on right needs to be better trimmed. Too much char, looks like you tried to cover up an over cook by adding sauce.

I give this one an 8. The pic makes this one hard to really see.

8 - Nice uniform pieces. Appear over sauced, but may be the photo flash that gives that look. Great color.

7 - dark and generally unappealing

Score/Reasons = Poor picture. Appears burnt and dry despite the sheen from the sauce. This is a below average 5.

8. Good arrangement, even color, look moist. However the left rib looks tapered to a narrower top and it is placed away from its neighbor which allows some green to show through. The remaining ribs in the row are flush with each other which establishes a pattern for the box.

Score/Reasons = 5, sorry, but these ribs look below average to me. They look burnt, over sauced and are sloppily placed in the box.

Score = 6, Ribs look very dark in color which is very unappetizing to me.

Score/Reasons = 7, man are these dark! Not evenly sauced, uneven coloration, and uneven cuts (right rib is cut strange). Dark color makes these less appetizing.

6.....Looks over cooked and dry. Rib on the right not rimmed. Some bone ends are sauced others not. It's distracting.

Score/Reasons = 7, There is really too much sauce which make it look slimy which takes away from the the appearance. I do like the caramelization on the meat though

7 - glaze too heavy, takes away from the look of the meat itself
3/19/2014 04:39:06 am
7 - Too dark, too much sauce.

No symmetry in placement. A bunch of rib pieces. Color is not very appetizing. Wide pieces, skinny pieces.
3/19/2014 06:34:24 am
7 - Burned and too much sauce
3/19/2014 07:37:54 am
7 - Gloppy, uneven sauce, crooked/uneven slicing.

7-looks over done

Score 6. Absolutely NO appeal with this box at all! The meat has no color and appears burnt, the sauce appears to be covering some poorly cooked ribs, and even the box layout and garnish does not add to this entry. Yes, I know we don't judge garnish, but this box needs a lot of help. I believe that this entry was made by a team this hasn't entered many contests.

Score/Reason = 5/The ribs look like they were overcooked and then sauced to cover it up. Not appealing at all!

Not too much uniformity in these pieces and I'm not crazy about one last piece on the side by itself. 7

5, Meat looks dark, overcooked. Sauce looks bumpy. It doesn't look like care was taken to clean up the box (bit of meat on garnish). Rough cuts (not straight clean lines). Overall Very sloppy work.

7 - Way too dark. Not the best picture so they might look better in person but the glare makes it tough but they do look too dark.

Score/Reasons = 5 Nothing really appealing about this box. The color is not appealing, unbalanced arrangement. Just looks like a mess.

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. ;-)
