Can' tell you about the differences bewtween each organization, but have been under the impression that to be considered for the Royal and Jack invites, that all four meats must be cooked, chicken, ribs, pork, brisket.

The American Royal is a KCBS (not a state) contest. Some state associations sponsor contests, most don't. The two dominant sanctioning bodies are KCBS and MBN but there are a few large state-only associations like in Florida.

I could be very wrong, but I believe that for one or both of those invitationals, it's actually that you must cook pork, beef, and chicken. That said, for competitions that only include pork ribs, that counts toward pork.

That is correct. The Jack and the AR require that chicken, beef, and pork (which includes ribs) be cooked. The new forms for the AR require the organizer to verify that meats from those 3 categories were cooked. Most TX BBQ contests require those 3 categories, and sometimes other types of pork are cooked (usually pulled, tho), or often fajitas (usually in S. TX).

MBN would not necessarily get an invite since those competitions are pork only for the GC. Chicken and beef are ancillaries. MIM specifically is an exception. KCBS comps definitely can count as feeders for those invitationals, as can IBCA I believe. Not sure on the others.

Here are a few links for you you check out...
http://www.lonestarbarbecue.com/
http://www.ctbahome.com/
http://www.tgcbca.org/
I would recommend looking on-line for a Texas BBQ Association near you and visit a local comp or two...most associations have a website that lists their competitions and who the sanctioning body is...good luck...but...better yet...have fun!

I live in Texas and have been competing in IBCA events for several years. IBCA events can get you invited to the American Royal from my understanding. The competitions you cook in depend on whether or not the grand champion receives an invite to the American Royal.

There are several other cooking associations as stated in an above post and they are the Central Texas BBQ Association (CTBA), Lone Star BBQ Society and Texas Gulf Coast BBQ Association.

The CTBA has different rules than the other sanctioning body so please read the rules before competing in those events.

Also, note that if you win the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo cookoff that you are automatically invited to the Jack Daniel's. The cookoff is sanctioned by the Texas Gulf Coast BBQ Association.

There are several brethren on here who have a lot more information on all the different sanctioning bodies. They may chime in at some point. If not you can look up Giant BBQ and he can help you out a lot. He is a head judge for the IBCA. Another is Texas Pepper Jelly, he was the president of the TGCBA. Texas Pepper Jelly also won the Houston competion this past year and went to the Jack Daniel's.

Hope this helps.

look for anything titled "State Championship". I just moved back here and don't know the Royal specifics but I believe many could get you in the draw for the Jack. That being said, I don't think Texas has many slots but has quite a few bungs in the pot for the Jack. I think and don't quote me on this there are some events that will put you in line for the Royal.

As for me, I'm just trying not to finish last.

You don't have to be a member of any BBQ association in Texas to cook 99% of the cook offs they sanction. Most of the BBQ associations will have an invitational cookoff that is only for there members once a year. If you cook a sanctioned cook off you just need to follow the rules of that sanctioning body for that particular cook off. The 3 main sanctioning bodies in Texas pretty much have the same rules.
