Now you can become a certified bbq judge, aka CBJ! Join the class scheduled for Sunday 6/29/14 which takes place in one of the fairground buildings, taught by the wonderful KCBS reps Carol and Randy Bigler. Spend just a few hours of your day learning the ins and outs of the famous KCBS “blind judging” system. Learn what it means to be a CBJ judge and graduate that same day! Then you are able to apply to be a judge at KCBS sanctioned events.
You do NOT have to be a KCBS member to take the class; and the best part is that if you aren’t a member, you will receive a one year membership to the KCBS with your entry fee. For sign up rates, and more information, go to this page –> https://hoggingup.wordpress.com/kcbs-judge-class/
