At this time, we are planning on 5 judging tables based on updated team count.

We are looking for the following:

• 30 Judges. PNWBA Certified BBQ Judges.  This may expand to 36, so please add yourself to the waiting list, if we become full.

• 5 Table Captains. This may expand to 6, so please add yourself to the waiting list, if we become full.

• 3-5 Volunteers, i.e. Food Runners, Meat Wranglers, and general helpers.

Due to the fluid nature of this event, signing up does not guarantee a judging spot. Please be willing to volunteer as needed. Should there be a reduction in judges needed, an email will be sent to see if you would wish to volunteer.

The head judges will make the final assessment of volunteers and choose the seated judges. Tables will also be adjusted at the event to try and even out the judge levels and experience.


Please sign up for the waitlist if initial spots are full.  We had to use several folks from the waitlist for our last event.
