In advance of their 2009 Que’n For Kids BBQ contest at the Orange County Fairgrounds, Kristie’s Foundation is organizing a BBQ judging class on March 21, 2009 in Anaheim, CA.
Why would you want to take a class for such a thing when you’re already a highly seasoned barbecue expert? So you can participate in sanctioned BBQ contests and judge contest quality food that you won’t find in a restaurant.
The Kansas City Barbecue Society is the largest competition BBQ organization in the world, and their certified barbecue judges (CBJ’s) are usually accepted at contests sanctioned by other groups. As a trained judge, you’ll typically be chosen over a non-trained person off the street, if the promoter has the option.
You’ll learn the rules of the KCBS, taste many examples of barbecue that demonstrate the good and bad, learn to distinguish legal contest submissions from the illegal, and elevate your knowledge of the art of barbecue.
Register at the QueNForKids website. Part of your registration fee pays for membership in the Kansas City Barbecue Society. If you’re bringing a spouse, ask about the KCBS family membership rate, rather than paying for two individual memberships.
