I would score this box 8. Looks good but I think it would look better if the ribs were turned around.

I would give this box a 9. Each looks uniform and the color is nice. I would like to see a bit darker color but it looks good enough to eat

Score/Comments = 8 (as presented) More possibly a 9 in person. The photographic white balance in this photo is off and not true forcing some assumption on color of the ribs. The arrangement is well organized, balanced and the 9 ribs fill the box nicely. The slicing is neat and I like the consistent pull-back on the bones. Some minor inconsistencies are noticeable in the sauce.

score / reason 8 good color, slices could be a little more uniform and placed straighter in box, rib in back on left side is bigger than the front giving it a uneven appearance.

Score: 7, doesn't look like the best ribs were selected to be in the front row which is the most prominent area in the box. These could have been trimmed up a little neater before cooking. All that fat on top of #3 and 4 does make for the best appearance.

Score/Reasons: 8. Too much fat showing on the 3rd and 4th rib in the front row.

8- Great over all color, though slightly uneven. Unable to determine if the darker spots are sauce or cooked in. Nice box.

Score/Reasons = 9, on the top ribs, it looks like the sauce is not applied evenly, there are lighter spots. Look good though.
3/2/2015 01:06:53 pm
8 - Uneven cuts..
3/2/2015 04:09:56 pm

9 - I like the look, a couple of the pieces look a little dark but that might be the photo........not enough to deduct points.

7, Looks nice. Would like to see be more uniform in width of the ribs.

Score/Reasons = 8 (maybe 9 in person). Box is nice and full. Ribs look to be moist, fairly evenly sliced with a nice color. Sauce not evenly spread.

Score/Reasons = 8 Good presentation. Ribs look good. Saucing looks a little uneven.

8= score based on appearance issues only. sauce is unevenly applied. ribs are not sized the same. front row bones have more meat showing. there are sauce marks on the box.

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. ;-)
