7 - Too much sauce, size and color not uniform.

I would only give this an 8. It is just so random, doesn't help the apperance of the meat.

Appearance-7 Nice shine, Not evenly cut, Ribs always look better if they are cut consecutively from a rack of ribs.

Score/Reasons = 8, sauce too heavy and not spread evenly. Layering ribs this small looks strange.

Nice glaze, good cuts with a nice bite of meat on each side.

Score 7. These ribs appear to be overcooked and then were over sauced to cover the error.

8 - Needs more uniformity. Close to a 9.

Nice looking ribs but could be better arranged in the box. There are some uniformity issues also. A 7.

8 - Nice meaty cuts. Pretty well over sauced. They are going to be tricky to pickup.

Score/Reasons = 7, Way too much sauce, not very appetizing to me. Also the ribs were not placed in the box carefully, they are not lined up evenly.
9/10/2014 10:04:09 am
Strong 8 possible 9

I can't see anything except the shining and over sauced bark. I'm judging for meat appearance but I can't.

I'm not familiar with ribs that look like this, so let's assume they're legal.

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. ;-)
