NEW! KCBS CERTIFIED BARBECUE JUDGE’S CLASS:
Date: Thursday, May 17, 2018 | Time: 5:00pm-9:30pm
Freedom Point Event Venue at Liberty Park
1188 Cumberland Drive, Clarksville, TN 37040

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

In a half-day's time, you'll learn how to grade world-class chicken, pulled pork, ribs and brisket - and taste them during the process! By the time you're finished, you'll be ready to sign up for the next competition in your area! And remember: your CBJ fee also includes one year's membership to KCBS. It's a win-win!’

Fee:
$65.00 for KCBS Member
$85.00 for KCBS non-member

KCBS is intended to promote barbecue in small towns across the country. The competitor’s series is comprised of professional and non-professional teams that are required to cook chicken and ribs, with an option of pork.

The Competitors Series contest allows for alternative heats sources.  The Competitors Series Contest is not eligible for the American Royal or the Jack Daniels World Championship.  In addition, Professional teams who participate in a Competitors Series Contest will not receive KCBS Team of the Year points. However, KCBS Backyard team members who participate in a Backyard sanctioned contest earn points towards the KCBS Backyard Team of the Year!

CORN HOLE TOURNAMENT:

Cornhole or Corn Toss is similar to horseshoes except you use wooden boxes called cornhole platforms and corn bags instead of horseshoes and metal stakes. Contestants take turns pitching their corn bags at the cornhole platform until a contestant reaches the score of 21 points. A corn bag in the hole scores 3 points, while one on the platform scores 1 point.

Fee:
$30.00 per team (due at time of registration)
