Our servers are ramped up and ready to go for the 2016 Sam's Club National BBQ Tour judge registration beginning Wednesday, Jan. 13, at 8 PM EST/7 PM CST.   

To judge a Sam's Club National BBQ Tour event you must be a KCBS Certified BBQ Judge. When registering, please be sure to have your KCBS Member Number and/or your CBJ Number on hand. 

Helpful tip: Registration links will NOT be live until 7pm CST sharp! When the clock strikes 7, refresh your browser and then you'll be able to click the registration links. For a detailed list of registration instructions, please click here

There will be a live-hosted support chat from 6:30-8:00 PM CST for questions and registration issues. Click the "Live Chat" link on the registration page to participate. 

Judges will only be able to reserve a spot for one event during the first 24 hours of registration. After the first 24 hours has expired you will be allowed to reserve a judging spot in more than one event if positions are still available.

Spots go quickly, so make sure to mark your calendars and set those clocks! 

(Registration for the National Championship event for Master Certified BBQ Judges will begin on Aug. 4, 2016.)
