General Backyard Barbecue Cook-off rules

  • Barbecue, for the purpose of this contest, is defined as raw or uncured meat prepared over charcoal fire or gas grill fire, basted or not, as the cook sees fit
  • A contestant is any individual or group that will prepare and cook an entry or entries for the purpose of being judged. (contestants will be referred to as “Grillers”
  • Each Griller will supply all of the equipment necessary for the preparation and cooking of the entry. Only charcoal or gas grills, (NO open/pit fires). The health and safety of everyone involved should be a primary consideration when selecting appropriate cooking fuels.
  • A blind judging system is based on a duplicate numbered ticket (e.g. theatre ticket) which will be utilized in both judging categories. Blind judging consists of one-half of the double ticket being with the entry and the matching number staying with the griller.
  • All entries will be judged on a scale of 1 through 10 in each of the judging criteria, with 10 being the best
  • If there is a tie, the Appetizer score will be used to break the tie, if there is still a tie, the Entree score will be used next as a tie breaker.  If we still have a tie we will turn to Super Deker board and have top stick handling score as a complete curve ball with a hockey twist. 
  • Competing cooks are not allowed to judge and judges are not allowed to cook.
  • All Grillers are expected to maintain their cook site in an orderly and clean manner and to use good sanitary practices during the preparation, cooking and judging process
  • Grillers are responsible for cleanup of their site once the completion has ended
  • Each team should be equipped with a readily available and visible working fire extinguisher, minimum suggested is 5lb. ABC.
  • Entries will be submitted (with enough for 3 judges) on plates, or container with eating utensils provided.
