The World Barbecue Championship will take place on November 2 and 3.
The competition categories will feature:
- Pork Shoulder
- Pork Ribs
- Beef Brisket
The World Food Championships will use a customized blind-judging system, which will include certified BBQ judges along with food celebrities, based on the Competitor Series that uses KCBS scoring in Appearance, Taste & Tenderness. The winner of the World Barbecue Championship will have the best cumulative score across all four categories.
Turn-in times will be:
FRIDAY: Pork Shoulder 4 p.m., Sauce 4:30 p.m.
SATURDAY: Pork Ribs 4 p.m., Beef Brisket 4:30 p.m.
Performance in all four categories will count toward a teamís overall score. Grand Champion awards and category winners will be announced Saturday at 7:00 p.m. as we kick off the Bourbon and BBQ VIP party.
Rules for the WFC are subject to change, but all decisions made by the WFC competition committee are final.
