Judges Application

Due to Overwhelming response…

We’ve temporarily closed judge registration.  We are running the names by our FBA folks to confirm the eligibility of all the folks who have already registered.  We’ll post those names as soon as those have been confirmed.

Then if we need more judges, we’ll open the registration back up after that.

For more information about what it takes to become an official FBA BBQ judge check out the official FBA site here.

All judges must be FBA sanctioned (meaning you must be a current judge in good standing).

To find out more about the FBA, contact here.

After registering as a judge, you will receive an automated email, confirming you as a judge… We will send the names off to the FBA to confirm your eligibility as an FBA judge. We will post a list of judges here. As always, depending on the number of cook teams we have, will determine the total number of judges we will need. So we’re confirming judge applications in the order they are received.


This diagram gives you an idea of where judges will be located this year. Instead of the large building we used last year, judges will be located in the Annex building to the side of the Coliseum.
