How many of you cooks are also KCBS judges??
I wish I could judge a little more.. I signed up to
judge New Paltz but never got any word back that was
in.. I wasn't going to drive 3 hrs to find out I wasn't needed
Bummed me out.. Oh well.. Please answer my question.

Thanx

I'm a Judge
Only Judged twice cause I would rather cook but I had no problem getting in.
Contact the contest org way in advance if you can.

I filled out the App. never heard anything..
All the contests I have judged I got an email from
the contest orginizer or kcbs rep telling all the judges
when to be there and other judging stuff.. I'm not a
newbee when it comes to judging been CBJ since 2000
But cooking is way more fun. I love to feed people. I make
come way cool stuff for people other then the judges.
I made a Lobster stuffed boneless prime rib roast. for us
at Rockin' Ribs in Cowhampshire.... mmm good stuff.

I judge KCBS and FBA...at most events if you show up you'll be used. I've shown up cold at Plant City, Winter Haven, Wachula, etc. and never been turned down.

I did sign up for the Oct. 13/14 event at Brooksville, FL, and they sent a nice "acceptance" letter along with maps, etc.

Even if you aren't used as a judge I'd make the trip anyway and schmooze for a few hours.

KCBS and FBA Judge.

You can also watch the sig lines. Many of the forum judges have it posted there, especially if they actually judge some.

Another judge here...

Just a suggestion... It's always a good idea to follow things up like this with an e-mail or call to the contest organizer to confirm they received your initial application.

KCBS Judge # 9715. More fun to cook, maybe has to do with cold drinks.

i'm a judge too, but I've only judged non-KCBS events (grilling) so far.....too busy competing in them to judge them! Although I feel as if I judge every time we compete.

I judged Grill Kings and The New England Championships at Harpoon this summer. Great learning experiences. It really helped with our first comp. at the Hudson Valley Rib Festival. It accelerated the learning curve. Can't wait to judge and cook next year. I enjoy both. Judging is less work and stimulates creativity, but the competition experience just can't be beat. Made alot of new friends doing both. I'm hooked.

Yours in BBQ,
