At first glance the meat looks a little haphazard in the box. Is it slices in the middle and along both edges and chunks along the front and back? It doesn't look like there are enough chunks for every judge to have a sample. Outside of that the meat looks good, like it is moist and has really good bark. Studying the picture I would say the garnish at the front is maybe covering the front part of the meat. You want the meat to stand out. At the table with the short time to look I would probably score an 8.

in the middle it's a pile of chunks with some bark showing, some smokering showing, some meat showing, on sides are 6 slices of money muscle, lightly sauced, and top and bottom are 6 pulled portions, lightly sauced. so 3 x 6 pieces of money muscle and pulled, more of the "barky chunks" in the middle.

Based solely on the photograph - 5

It's just not appealing to me - the meat is very haphazard looking, almost like you tossed in a handful of scraps. The sauce looks really viscus and uneven and the money muscle slices on the right look dry. Box looks unbalanced with more meat on the left than on the right.

Take this as constructive criticism.....

They look more like pork nuggets... seem too evenly cut. Sliced is one thing, but if your going for pulled chunks, it needs some more character with slight variances in the chunks, the positioning/arrangement...As well, the color too varied.. some are pink, some whitish/gray, some brown, some blackish.. needs more uniformity on that side of it.

Default I'd say a 6 for presentation

It just looks out of sorts...no real flow to the box...my eyes couldn't focus on anything and couldn't (quickly) determine what i was looking at to make it appetizing to me.

I only see medallions, cubes and 2 pieces of pulled pork in a box that looks like it is in a huge confusing mess laid on bed of greens.
Were you pressed for time when you filled your box?

In general, I see the concept you were going for, but, it looks disorganized (as said above) and the pulled portions are a little tough to see visually. The slices of money muscle seem uneven and there is a variation that makes it looks like some does not have bark.

The score should be made only on how appealing the meat looks not how orderly it is placed. I like Slamdunckpro's answer simply stating that it did not look appealing. Thats the way it should be.

I would create seperation between the different pieces. I think what you were trying to do is right, just not executed correctly. Creating seperation between the different pieces will make it look a little more orderly. And a putting green will make the meat stand out.

Crude photoshop ...

Looking orderly, well positioned, same size pieces, ect, is part of the game. Thats just the way it is.

Granted but it's not supposed to be. The few times I have judged I gaged my mark on how much I want to take a bite. Maybe that was wrong of me.
