The class to become a certified BBQ judge and a member will start at 10 AM to 2 PM with a BBQ lunch included. The class cost is $ 25.00 and the membership fee for a single is $ 17.50, couples $ 30.00 (you need to be a member to judge).


Once you have received SBN certification you can then start judging at the next contest on September 28th and 29th at either the Jamil Shriner’s BBQ Cook Off in Columbia or in Myrtle Beach at the Smoke at the Beach event.
