Learn To Be A Judge!

Northern California

On July 30th, 2005, you will have the opportunity to become an Official BBQ Judge.

This is a great way to get more involved. Last year I attended the Go for the Gold at Follows Camp and learned to judge. It was a great experience, I learned what was expected of award winning BBQ and left with a full stomach!
