According to my CBJ manual, the three criteria are Appearance, Tenderness/Texture, and Taste. I know the score sheet says Tenderness, but in the CBJ class, and in the instructions given out before the judging session, the word texture is used as often as tenderness.
So really, I think we are judging for texture.
