Looks kinda dry, nice color, knife cuts just OK. Brush marks quite visible, maybe thin sauce a little.

score/reason 8 good color, nice arrangement, looks like i can see brush marks in the sauce, two bones showing on the two ribs on the left takes away from uniformity, cut lines could be a little straighter

7. Brush marks, looks like it needs a little more shine. Sauce looks thick and clumpy
5/27/2015 05:39:26 am
Score/Reasons = 7, looks not so appetizing...

8 - Rib cuts need to be more uniform and brush marks in the glaze need to be eliminated. You're close to a 9...

Score/Reasons: 8 - Nice color, could use a little more "pop." Slices are a bit irregular. Photo is foggy so it's a bit difficult to say much more.

8. Nice color, appreciate not over saucing, but look a tad dry. Otherwise appear not overdone but do worry might not be done enough based on pull back. Could go a 7 as a result.
5/28/2015 02:26:54 am
8 heavy sauced
5/28/2015 04:09:43 am
Score 7 Sauce appears dull. Samples very in widths. This box just doesn't "pop."

nice color, personally my eyes are drawn to the brush strokes. 8
5/28/2015 12:08:08 pm
8 - Could be the picture but the rib color doesn't look that great. Cutting of the ribs could be more even.
5/29/2015 07:22:02 am
Score 7, has the appearance of being a bit overcooked. Better lighting and actual tasting may tell a different story but from the photo it's just above average but not excellent.
5/30/2015 03:15:35 am
Score/Reasons = 7 This above average entry might score higher in person... in the photo the color does not pop. Overall, the arrangement looks good, there is however inconsistency in the slicing. The sauce appears uneven and has obvious brush strokes.

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. ;-)
