SAM'S BBQ TOUR - Good News!

January 26, 2012

In less than 72 hours over 1000 Certified BBQ Judges registered to judge the 2012 Sam's Club National BBQ Tour. The good news is a number of those judges have elected to be on a waiting list for events that are currently full.  There are still plenty of available positions, but they're going fast.  If you're a CBJ and interested in helping award the largest prize purse in BBQ contest history, then now is the time to sign-up.

For those of you who are interested in competing, it's good news that there are still around 100 spots open for teams to compete in the Sam's Club National BBQ Tour. With a prize purse of $500,000 up for grabs, the opportunity is there for the taking. And speaking of opportunity, smaller fields in upcoming Florida competitions mean a greater chance of moving on to regionals.

To take advantage of one of these opportunities, register here:  http://kcbs.us/sams-club-series.php
