Barbecue Challenge Judging Information

All KCBS Certified Barbecue Judge Spots Are Now Filled!

team memberThank you for your interest in participating in the Best Dam Barbecue Challenge as a competition judge!

This year, we received a record number of judging applications and have now filled all judging positions.

If you applied to be a judge last year (whether or not you were accepted), you are already on the email list to be notified when judging applications are available for our this year's event.

If you have not applied to be a judge before and are interested in receiving an email when the applications have been posted to this website for NEXT year's competition (in January 2015), please feel free to let us know via email by clicking here.  Please let us know whether or not you are a KCBS certified judge and if so, please include your CBJ number for us.

If you have submitted a judging application and are now not able to attend our event, please inform us via email as soon as possible by clicking here.

If you have been confirmed as a judge already or been put on the waiting list, please contact our judging coordinator directly (the person who contacted you to let you know your status) or you may send us an email through our contact form and we will forward it to her on your behalf.

Thanks so much and we're looking forward to a great event on the Friday and Saturday of Memorial Day Weekend!
