Welcome Barbecue Judges, Cook Teams, Organizers, and Enthusiasts!
BBQJudges.org is an international site created by the barbecue community for the barbecue community. It is a central hub where people from all over the world can come together for a free flow of information, and ideas. It is a place where you can post news and pictures, arrange carpools, check on events, cross-reference with organizers and cook teams, write reviews, organize or check on classes, and get to know each other. It is open to all barbecue organizations, nationally and internationally. We are also building a private judges database for every BBQ Judge in the world. All information is kept private, and will only be used to disseminate information that is pertinent to you (i. e. judges needed, new contests, an off-season get together, etc.). To sign up go to the Judges/Cook Team Sign up page, and sign up.
Each state and country has their own forum page. Organizers and cook teams also have their own sections on the international, state, and country forums. Organizers can promote their events or classes, post information about the judges check-in and meeting times, and if necessary request more judges if they are short. They can also get feedback from judges, and cook teams about their competitions.
Cook teams can use their sections to announce winning Grand or Reserve champion, ask judges or organizers questions, or to post any other information they want disseminated. They can also be used to connect judges with cook teams to complete their cook requirement for Master Judge or to increase their knowledge to make them a better judge. We are also building a database of all the cook teams in the world. It contains the team name, members, and links to all webpages including webpages, Facebook, Twitter, or any other social media your team has. You can also sign up for this page on the Judges/Cook Team Sign up page.
The Classified page is free, and can be used by anyone to promote their products, services, restaurants, equipment, or any thing else you would like to sell. If you are interested in becoming a judge or joining an association in your area, we have a page with links to groups all over the United States and across the globe. Check out our blog for interviews of barbecue enthusiasts from around the world, and other information that you may find useful.
