Judges Class Galax, VA

July 19, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 2:30 pm

Memphis Barbecue Network is proud to offer barbecue judging seminars for barbecue enthusiasts. The purpose of these seminars is to instruct judges in the mechanics of judging a Memphis Barbecue Network Sanctioned barbecue contest.

All Network Sanctioned Contests are provided with lists of trained and certified judges for use in their contests. Barbecue teams prefer trained and/or certified judges and often inquire at a contest as to the number of trained and/or certified judges. Most sanctioned contests, including the Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest, are rapidly working toward using 100% trained and/or certified judges. As a trained and/or certified judge, you will be invited to judge at many events all across the country.

Topics that will be covered at the judging seminar include: the Memphis Barbecue judging process and rules, the official meat categories, the scoring process, blind, on-site and final judging. You will sample barbecue during simulated judging exercises by barbecue teams.

After becoming a Memphis Barbecue Network trained judge, you may gain certification by judging each official meat category (Whole Hog, Pulled Pork, and Rib) at a least 2 (two) sanctioned contests.

The Judging Seminar cost is $75 which includes all materials and is limited to the first 50 registrants. Our next seminar will be held:
