View Full Version : Rate my box - first for me too! No food, yet!

I am working on doing spares right now but wanted to build a box. I got one from a local diner so it might not be exactly what they use at comps.

Sorry there is no food in this yet but I will update later. Any pointers on the build?

Looks great. The only minor thing I see, and it may just be the picture, is the difference in color in some of the parsley. I would put the lighter parts in the middle that will be covered by your meat.

Your greens might be too high in the box to allow the lids to close and not hit the top of your ribs.

Thank you both very much... both very valid points!

I found out on my first one that I also built the bed to high! Other than that it looks really good.

A tip that might help is chopping your lettuce into finer pieces or strips. I used to have a hard time pushing the stem of the parsley down when I used chunks like that.

I can't judge a box without food. Because FOOD is the only thing a CBJ looks at. Anyone who looks at the garnish is a poor judge. I've never sat at a table and heard any judge comment about the garnish. If I did, I would have the Table Captain AND the KCBS Rep have a conversation with them.
