I would go ahead and give it a 9. But the two ribs on right first row should have been place on bottom, and four even sized placed on tops.

8 - Nice presentation, good color but too much sauce. Cut back on the sauce and it would be a 9 for me.

9 - Wow! This is a first rate box in my view. There are only tiny imperfections, color difference in rib #3 in the first row, also it is a touch smaller than others. But I have to really search for something to complain about here. This is a box I would love to reach into - well done!

8 - I would try to hide the showing bone ends.

Score/Reasons: 8 - nicely presented box of ribs. I don't mind the sligthly uneven width of the slices, they are not manufactured pieces after all, but I DO mind the what appears to be thick heavy sauce.

8- The samples look really good, but the bottom right rib is sliced a bit larger than the rest, up front and very noticeable. Also went a little heavy on the sauce.
7/16/2014 01:35:07 pm
Ribs look blotchy and unevenly cut. Nice level of color but overall uneven. 7

Nice shiney, yummy looking ribs. Varing non continues ribs in front ruin the look . If you can't make them look like from the same rack, hide them under ones that do.

Score/Reasons = 8, may be a 9 if the sauce was used as a condiment and not to smother the meat. I don't know why the meat has to me smothered with the sauce.
7/17/2014 10:05:44 am
Score/Reasons = 9, Looks fresh and moist with just a glaze of sauce.

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. ;-)
