If I give you a 6 or lower I'm basicly taking you out of the money, so I feel that I should tell you why. I've written comments such as: "No flavor except sauce" ... "Slices were mushy, pulled was great" ... "Way under (or over) done" ... "Looks like it was just thrown in the box" ... "The only flavor was chili powder".
I'm not writing these to be cruel, I'm letting you know why I gave you a low score so you can correct it next time.
