  • Parishioners Preferred
  • KCBS Judging Experience Preferred

Reminder, this is a parish event, not a formal KCBS-sponsored BBQ competition. If your primary intent is to win the competition, you are encouraged to consider other events. We have an excellent group of judges, the majority of which have participated in this event for multiple years and volunteer for other BBQ competitions. However, we pride ourselves in offering this volunteer opportunity to parishioners.

We know countless hours and effort go into this event by every team, and appreciate all the effort for the entire event and competition. But please note that this event was founded on and will continue to operate under our mantra of Faith, Fellowship, Food, and Fun.
