8 - I think the flash gives these the appearance of being a bit oversauced and the meat maybe a bit pale.
3/18/2014 11:40:56 pm
Score/Reasons = 8, pieces not uniform in size.

8. Good arrangement, look moist, even color, good knife skills. However, while the creases on the four top pieces align nicely the bottom right rib has a different shape (twisted top and different crease line) suggesting it was not a contiguous rib, thereby spoiling a nice pattern.

Score/Reasons = 8, full box with decent color on the sauce, the tips of the ribs appear overcooked (charred)

Score/Reasons = 8, looks unevenly sauced, uneven coloration, and a lot of sauce, not a fan of the dark edges on the top of the ribs.

8......Color is light but has a nice shine. Sauce looks goopy. Good even, clean cuts.

Score/Reasons = 7, The red color and the heavy sauce is not very appetizing to me. The red color is not natural.
3/19/2014 03:43:03 am
8 - good moisture, appears to be meaty, camera angle makes sizes out of proportion, may not be the case looking from the top
3/19/2014 04:39:55 am
7 - too much sauce, the ribs appear pale in color under all the sauce.
3/19/2014 04:59:08 am
Score 9 - These are ribs that I would want to eat. Also noticed the consideration of volunteers by having extra ribs. Thanks.

8 - a little saucy
3/19/2014 07:44:47 am
9 -Nice box!

Score 8. Reasons: I would like to see the ribs in both rows more equal in size and LESS sauce coating the ribs.

I would score this an 8. Good color and shine but the glaze looks a little thick.

Another case where the entry is prepared with care, uniform pieces and arranged nicely, but too much sauce. I scored it with an 8.

Score/Reasons 8 Nice color, nice arrangement. Could just be the picture shadows , a little charring on ends throwing the balance of color off.

You are REQUIRED to register as a BBQ Critic Online Judge to be allowed to judge boxes on this site. Click here to sign up now.
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. ;-)
