Our BBQ Judging goal is to use 100% KCBS Certified Judges.  But, we won't turn away PNWBA Judges who wish to participate.  

BBQ Contest Judges can sign up at the KCBS Website.  We will accept judge’s applications right up until the contest, but if you want to be seated, please register soon.  We anticipate needing approximately 45 judges and already have 40 judges signed up.  Do it now.  PNWBA Judges who are not certified by KCBS, please contact the organizer directly.


BBQ Judging will take place on Sunday 22 August 2021.  The judge’s tent will be located behind the actual clocktower of Clocktower Park.  Check in for judge’s will be at 09:30 AM.  Jack Shot with teams at 10:00 AM.  (note: judges must use apple juice only and will not mingle with cooks) Judge’s Meeting at 10:30 AM. We will use standard turn-in times:


Chicken – 12:00 PM

Ribs – 12:30 PM

Pork – 1:00 PM

Brisket – 1:30 PM

Awards – 4:00 PM


As always, please don’t spend time with cook teams on the day of turn-in.  We will welcome you in the park all day Saturday and meeting cooks is a great way to learn more about BBQ and raising your own game.  Plan to be with all weekend for great fun.
