Share this article:
January 16, 2014

Mark your calendars! The 2014 Sam’s Club National BBQ Tour TEAM Registration will open Wednesday, Jan. 22 at 7 p.m. CST. Spots will fill quickly, so if you want a shot at becoming BBQ's National Champion, be prompt, make sure your membership status is active, have your payment info ready, and make sure you have a list of alternate events (just in case)!

Below is the TENTATIVE 2014 schedule to allow cooks to begin to plan their calendars. Please Note: this schedule is still pending review and approval by the KCBS Board of Directors and is subject to change.


Beginning at 6 p.m., a live, online chat will be in session to support team registration and answer any questions you may have.

For those CBJ's wanting to taste the action, Judges’ registration will open on Wednesday, Jan. 29. 

Good Luck to All!
