8 - Interesting display of ribs cascading from our left to right. Color is just a touch light, but finished well with sauce. These really do make me want to reach into the box and taste them.

Score/Reasons: 9 - nice looking, inviting ribs. Great color, not over sauced. Not a fan of the arrangement, but it's legal.

Interesting display, brush marks are not appetizing. Brushed sauce on the edges do not mean it was glazed and set.

Score/Reasons = 9, nice color and I like the way the meat is arranged. Its eye catching the way the ribs are lined up, unlike most of the other presentation.

8- Nice ribs, good color, uniform in size.
7/30/2014 04:03:35 pm
8 in appearance. Pieces are even in size with smooth cuts. Can see front as well as side of ribs. Nice amount of sauce, no too much.

7- From a judges perspective, these ribs looked to be sliced unevenly, color looks to be off,and the lack of a bone showing on the end leads me to believe they are undercooked.

7. I don't like the presentation.

Ok. So I'm a newbee. Is the fanned placement allowed? I really like it but...

Score/Reasons = 7 Nice color, but really can't see the whole rib. Like the thinking outside the box, but arrangement didn't really work.

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. ;-)
