KCBS Certified Judging Class (KCBS member)

Saturday, September 1 from 8AM - 12:30PM

Current KCBS membership required.

KCBS teams are known for cooking some of the best barbeque in the world, but it takes a dedicated team of judges to decide which is truly the best-of-the-best. Being a Certified Barbeque Judge (CBJ) means more than just getting to taste award-winning barbeque - and deciding which barbeque wins those awards. It's about representing and spreading the message of KCBS, which is to promote America's cuisine - barbeque.

To become a CBJ, you must attend a class conducted by KCBS. In a half-day's time, you'll learn how to grade world-class chicken, pulled pork, ribs and brisket - and taste them during the process!

By the time you're finished, you'll be ready to sign up for the next competition in your area! And remember: your CBJ fee also includes one year's membership to KCBS. It's a win-win! For more information on Kansas City BBQ Society visit

Please note the class fee includes all supplies and a mock judging of all four KCBS meat categories. Students will sample chicken, pork ribs, pork and brisket. The class is not intended to replace a meal, so we kindly ask that you plan accordingly.

Applicants are officially registered once the application and payment are received. Applications are accepted on a first come, first serve basis. Space is limited. No refunds applicable once registered.

Please let us know if you will be staying to view the judging on Sunday, September 2. There is no guarantee that we will have a spot for you to judge, but we will have a spot for you to volunteer and see how it is done.
