Other than looking a little dry in the picture -- which it might not have looked like in real life -- that box looks very good to me. If it looked moist at the time, I would have given it an 8, if not a 7.

Perhaps that stringy piece on the right pops out and distracts somewhat, but I wouldn't have counted down for that.

I would give it a 7 or 8. I like the chunks but to get the 9 I think you should have more bark showing and maybe a little shine to make it pop and the pulled is a little distracting and does not add to the overall appearance to me. I don't really grade on garnish unless it is really distracting so it did not affect the score at all.

6 - I think that's an average looking pork box

Someone's going to call the score harsh, so here's my reasoning - It looks like a pile of huge pork chunks with some strands of pork to the front. The barked pieces are hidden, had they been on top the score may have been higher. Simply, its appearance doesn't make me feel like I need to have a sample now.

All that said, if I were a judge it probably would have got a 7 because a 6 is generally as low as I go unless it's God-awful and it's not a bad looking box - but it's not above average either.

Lose the strands. Kind of reminds me of finding hair in my food at a restaurant.

Yeah but I will be sure to bring some protective gear to wear. With all of the friends you have making out on the circuit I might be at risk of getting hit with some flying objects

Don't worry they all hate me until they meet me. I knew you were staying out of that one. I was entertaining myself!

I just got my badge yesterday, so I am now certifiable. I'd go with a solid 8.

Loses the strands and put more garnish around the front to even it out. The lack of garnish up front and the strands overlapping on the sides is distracting to me. The meat looks good and moist to me, I would probably give it a 6 or 7. You could replace the strands with slices if you want something different in the meat.

From a layman's perspective ...

The meat looks delicious.

The layout ... average. Other boxes I've seen here look better organized.

The box just doesn't say "eat me now or you'll regret it!" like some of the boxes that were winners did.

I'd go between 7 and 8... so I'd resolve to an 8... lose the strands, like said, center better on the garnish to frame it better... it will look more organized, which is hard to do with pork.
