Any chance we could get a larger picture and a side view of the ribs?

A larger picture would be nice, but the box should be judges as presented, and since there is no side of the ribs showing, that shouldn't be taken into account.

Working with the smaller pic, the ribs looks good. The color is nice, the glaze looks even. The cuts could be cleaner and straighter. Also, if you have a garnish base, the ribs would be higher in the box so you could move the front row forward nd show more of the back row.

I missed that. Try to fill the box as much as possible. With some boxes, what you have is all you can fit, but if you can fit more, then use whatever space you have for the ribs. It's hard to tell from the small pic, but make sure that your sauce/glaze is smooth, no brush marks, and use the sharpest knife that you have to get nice, clean cuts. If you can get the top row of ribs from the same rack, do that and keep them in the same order. The hidden ribs don't make as much difference.

They look good to me. Small pic, but KCBS scoring (which does allow garnish) It's an 8 or possibly a 9. MBN scoring it's a 9 or perhaps a 10. If it is MBN, you'll want 2 bones on each piece because their definition of perfect ribs is pull cleanly from the bone with only a little resistance; 2 bones helps the judge.

Looks like 8 ribs and that's the min for FBA. Most FBA boxes have 10 to 12 bones. With no garnish fill the box. As many as you can get in. Putting bones on the side to show meant isn't needed for high scores.

Ribs look great. Based on scores I've seen that's probably a 9 and maybe a 9.5 from one or 2 judges. Sauce smudge on corner may score you down.

Its KCBS scoring but no garnish at the Go Naked comp. I noticed the smudge after the pic was taken and a rib was already gone by then LOL.

Looks good to me, 8 or 9, but a nice close up picture would make it easier to critique.

Definitely put bones up. Try lying 1 rib horizontally under the bottom row, will help elevate the bottom rack so they will all look even in the box. Also, if you can fit 5 on 5, try it. A full box is a good box. ;) And lastly, good luck at Go Naked!
