View Full Version : What's a '9' look like?

Many people have been posting turn in box pics asking people to rate them. I've seen people offering 6's, 7's, some 8's. Lots of verbal suggestions on what to do better. Anyone want to show us what a '9' looks like?

Everything I've seen so far looks pretty good to me. I can understand and appreciate the comments as well as the next guy.

I'm a CBJ myself, but I've never judged. I'm just looking to get some perspective on what the best should look like - in terms of pictures, not words.

Looking for any box pictures that people got great results on. Thanks!

I think your serious....This was given 2 9's, but it also received an 8, 7 and 2 6's!

What you need is some one to post a shot of a 180 box. Then you know all 6 judges said that is a 9!

Maybe those that gave the 6 were looking at it upside down. :rolleyes:

AzQer just posted this a few days ago, as a CBj I thought it was a nine.

Per above, all are very good.
As per the chickie box above:
Probably the best chicken box I have seen to date; so far nothing like that has hit my judges tables.

I certainly think the chicken box is gorgeous... but I want to crawl into the second brisket box.

AWESOME looking boxes across the board, the chicken is off the charts, I give it an 11!!! I have only judged one small comp and there was nothing there that looked anything like any of those boxes.

I am not putting the chicken down but do you guys really thing it looks that good? Is that what judges are looking for? I'm sorry but it looks a bit artificial to me. Isnt cjicken supposed to look like chicken?
