KCBS teams are known for cooking some of the best barbeque in the world, but it takes a dedicated team of judges to decide which is truly the best-of-the-best. Being a Certified Barbeque Judge (CBJ) means more than just getting to taste award-winning barbeque and deciding which barbeque wins those awards. Its about representing and spreading the message of KCBS, which is to promote Americas cuisine barbeque.

PorktoberQue uses 100% certified, confirmed KCBS judges to score and judge the competition. This way, we know that the teams will have the most fair competition possible. Judges can sign up at http://www.kcbs.us/event/6155/porktober-que

At times, table captains and master judges may be moved ahead of certified judges as the need requires. All CBJs who have applied will be notified in late August or early September as to the status of their application. Most likely, the first 40 or so people will be able to judge.
