I would rate this a 8. I would rather see more of the ribs. Not placing them on the sides

8 - only < 9 because I like ribs w/o the edges showing.

9. Great layout. Nice arrangement. Look moist. Even color and sizes.

Score = 7. I actually thought this was a box of hotdogs when I first looked. LOL! Too much sauce is blocking what the meat looks like.

Score/Reasons: 9 - I like the layout. Ribs look great especially with a restrained application of sauce.

8 to much sauce

I giv ethis one an 8. Just too much sauce on the meat. Would like to see the meat and not soo much sauce.

8- Nice. Appear moist and meaty, but a tad over sauced.

6 - Okay entry, The sauce appears to be too thick, masking the look of the meat versus enhancing it. The fibers of the brush used have left lines that distract. It is also difficult to see what color the meat is.

9 - Good presentation, symmetry, and nice color.

Score/Reasons = 8. I want to give it a 9 (maybe in person) but I can't see the meat for all the sauce. Beautiful box.

Score 7 - Looks like some well cooked ribs but I don't like the arrangement at all. I need to see the top of those babies, without standing on my head or asking the table captain to do the hokey pokey. A box full of sideways ribs is not a great choice.

Score/Reasons = 7, When the picture popped up, I didn't know what it was - strips of meat or ribs.

Score = 8, Can't see anything but the side of the rib and those look over sauced. Interesting presentation though

Sauce looks too thick/sticky. Too "red" - I like tomato based sauces but this look like more than typical amount for competition ribs.

Score/Reasons = 9, difficult to tell by this angle and photo, but looks dad-gum good to me. In person it could change!

Score/Reasons = 8, I can't see a single rib except on it's side, so I can't gauge the consistency of the width which is important to me.

8....Heavy brush marks. Meat may be dry. Good color. Care was taken making the box. Nice arrangement.

9 - I want to dig in. Ribs are framed by the garnish and each other. Great appearance.

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. ;-)
