Judging BBQ is serious, and delicious business.  If you are already a KCBS Certified BBQ Judge, you are invited to join us in Ottawa on May 24th to help deliver the caliber of professional judging that our teams expect.

We are going to need KCBS Certified Judges for Sunday, but we will need regular folks to help us judge the Backyard and Kids Q competitions on Saturday!  There is not enough time to judge both events on Saturday.

Complete the form below to register and we will follow up soon, indicating what events you are being invited to participate.

You’re not a Certified BBQ Judge?  Don’t worry, you can still judge the Backyard BBQ Master Competition, or, go get Certified!

Want to be certified and judge in Ottawa?  The Kansas City Barbecue Society, along with our friends at 514 BBQ, is hosting a Certified BBQ Judge (CBJ) Class in Montreal on Sunday, March 29th!  You will learn the finer aspects of judging Chicken, Ribs, Pork and Brisket, and you get to sample.  This class comes with a One Year Membership to the KCBS, so you can judge KCBS events anywhere in the world, like ours here in Ottawa!!

Become a Certified BBQ Judge!
