Judges Application

Judge applicants may use the following online form to apply for our contest. You must have a current KCBS membership and have taken the official KCBS Certified BBQ Judge (CBJ) course/refresher to sit at a table and score the meats presented, but non-CBJ volunteers are welcome to assist with the other tasks. 

As a reminder, when you sign up for a contest, you agree to be part of the entire KCBS Judging process, which includes Judging (seated at a table and scoring the meats), being a Table Captain, and volunteering to work the Turn-In-Table, Number Changing area and Leftover area. If you are unable to perform any of these duties, please state so when you apply. Judging assignments and table/seat selection will be made by KCBS' random Chip Draw process at day-of registration.
