Never judged official Tim, but I am certified.
So I'll try to answer from a "novice" perspectiive.
the answer: "no"
Judging in KCBS is an individual thing, with no interaction with others. Its not allowed. You have 6 entries in front of you, you bite, you think, you judge. Talking is not permitted until after the round (is this right Brooklyn)
Way low or Way high, that is the luck of the draw. You (cook) use a salty rub. Judge A likes satly, so scores an 8, judge B, dislikes salt and scores a 4 (on overall taste).
Judgeing, to me (certified but virgin) seems to be the luck of the draw
