2016 MBN Barbecue Judging Seminar


Memphis Barbecue Network is proud to offer barbecue judging seminars for barbecue enthusiasts. The purpose
of these seminars is to instruct judges in the mechanics of judging a Memphis Barbecue Network Sanctioned
barbecue contest.

All Network Sanctioned Contests are provided with lists of trained and certified judges for use in their contests.
Barbecue teams prefer trained and/or certified judges and often inquire at a contest as to the number of trained
and/or certified judges. Most sanctioned contests, including the Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest, are
rapidly working toward using 100% trained and/or certified judges. As a trained and/or certified judge, you will
be invited to judge at many events all across the country.
