Pellet Envy had a beta test of judging on their FB page a couple months ago that seemed to address some of least to tell the cooks how they stacked up against others at the same table. It made sense to me.
I judge as well as compete. Judges never see the final score sheets for a comp, and they have no way of ever knowing how their scores affected the outcome. The new tracking system is intended to provide better feedback to teams as well as KCBS internally, but without access to the data, it does nothing for judges, and this overlooks a huge opportunity.

Once it goes live, KCBS should post the detailed results online in such a way that judges can find their scores by table and seat number after a comp and have some way of seeing how they scored vs. the rest of their table. As a cook, I'd be interested to see if the judge at table 4, seat 2 was just hypercritical when he judged my ribs or if he was like that all day long. The judge at table 4, seat 2 should also be interested to see that, too.

Judges who care need this to gauge whether they are judging fairly and identify areas for improvement. If KCBS makes that data available, then the new system has potential to be a really useful tool for both judges and cooks.
