Judges Registration Form

Our KCBS Competition is scheduled for October 12-13, 2018

We expect to use 100% certified judges for our KCBS categories and certified judges will be given priority. We expect to need 60 plus judges for our KCBS competition.

However, we usually need backup KCBS judges and also up to 35 additional judges for our Backyard Thrill of the Grill categories and Friday evening ancillary competitions. These are great opportunities for non certified folks or late registrants to participate! Sign up and bring a friend!

Send us a separate Judges application form for EACH interested judge.  Please indicate on the form if you are willing to judge our non-kcbs categories such as our Backyard Chicken and Ribs competition.

Periodically, we will add judges names received in list form below. If, by July 1, 2017, you sent  an application and your name is not on the list below drop us an email. We will let you know if we have a seat for you as a backup, or a backyard contest judge.

I will contact and reconfirm each judges availability in early September and also ask specific commitments for the backyard judging at that time. Thanks for your interest and help.

Try to register before May 1, 2018 for our 2018 contest.

We will open up the online judging forms for our 2018 competitions on February 1, 2018. Earlier emails, phone calls  and contacts will not be considered
