The angle isn't great... and too much reflection. I also don't really like sauce on the bones. However, those look fantastic, and you didn't sauce the cut side of the meat.. I'd give it a 9 from what I can see.

8 - The second pic looks like it has brush streaks. Other than that, they look perfect.

The pics are not showing enough to really judge, but if I had to guess I'd say they would score very high.

Part of my criteria for a 9 is wanting to immediately eat one of them... and I do!!!

The far right rib in the top pic is a little funky on the bone end. Everything else looks real uniform.

I like that you didn't sauce the edges of the ribs. The cut looks real clean, too.

You're right. I didn't notice it til now. I had 1 hour of sleep in a 48 hour period before the contest so I was overlooking a lot of things.

brush marks aren't marking... anyone could leave brush marks. Brush marks that spell something, that's marking.

A better picture from farther away would help to see but, the 8 flat ribs look good and uniform. I would probably score down on the loose rib on its side. It takes away from the uniformity of the box. I like to see everything uniform and even.
The ribs themselves look very good, and have great color.

Agreed, not marking but ....

I score these a 7 from what I see, largely do to the "silicon brush ridges."

I have to agree with Curt. I've not been to a contest where they would consider brush marks marking. Pooling sauce in a pattern, Brushing on a letter/number/symbol - something that could be pointed to specifically. A generic brush mark is typically not taboo. I would think you wouldn't want to have one, but if your sauce tacked up to fast, etc. it is still "non-discript", and would not be considered marking.

Yup! First time I used silicone brushes was on this. May be the last too!

I thought I had a better pic at the over the top angle but I guess my phartographer didn't do one of those for me.
