Thank you for your interest in participating in the 2017 Florida State Barbecue Championship as a competition judge! Judges must be present the entire time from 9:00am – 2:30pm on Saturday, February 11, 2017. Because we believe strongly that a quality BBQ competition requires the highest standards in judging, we strive to use 100% Florida BBQ Association (FBA) certified judges at our event. Applications from certified judges will be confirmed on a first-come, first served basis, so we encourage early application. By submitting an application, you are not guaranteed a judging spot. We will reply to applicants within 10 days of receiving an application to acknowledge receipt and inform of status. If you do not receive our reply, please let us know.
