Anything but black. Charred ribs are a nice treat sometimes but dont do well in comps IMHO.

As a CBJ, the color is not the most important part of judging appearance IMO. The box must look appealing all together. Uniiform size, clean cuts, not over or under sauced and nice arrangement will score high with me. I'm with WineMaster on the color thing. All of the choices in the poll can be very appealing in a turn in box.

PS My vote in the poll is based on conversations with other CBJ's

Assuming that all other things are equal, I think I would prefer a dark reddish brown Mahogany), but I'd have to have the boxes in front of me to really decide.

Actually a medium red is my personal preference (however - at competitions I judge each box on its own merits without a preference!); therefore, I voted for a "light red" color, I could have just as easily voted for "dark red", but too dark of red usually indicates too heavy sauce which could over-power the flavor of the meat.

I have a favorite color, but really has nothing to do with my judging.
I COOK with the goal of red/dark red/light mahogany, cause I like mine that way.
I JUDGE based on how appetizing the overall appearance (of which color is but one element) make the ribs look.

Mista, the color is not so important to me - unless there isn't any - then I wonder...
Consistent color is important, though.

I want the color to be equal and not splotchie, have a deep red color and above all judge the box on it merits of good bbq.

A medium to dark red looks more appetizing to me, but of course it's all about taste.

Bigmista, I saw that Ultimate Showdown show the other day, did you guys know who the judges were before the comp. started?

As others have said, it's not my job as a judge to have a preference.
You cook 'em I judge 'em.
I chose dark red meaning mahogeny as that's how I prefer to cook them.
To me it's very important that the slab be all one hue as splotchy don't cut it for me.
Nice clean, straight cuts with even sized pieces with the bone in the middle and even amounts of meat on both sides get my best score.

don't have a favorite color, but the color must be uniform in the box.
