An Official Georgia State Championship

About the Georgia BBQ Championship

Georgia BBQ Championship is a prize awarded to the most successful barbecue cook team on the KCBS sanctioned Pro BBQ circuit in our state. The winner receives a cash prize, a spectacular trophy and bragging rights as the best BBQ cook in the state!

The Mission of the Georgia BBQ Championship is to promote barbeque excellence, encourage competitive team spirit and enhance tourism as an economic development initiative.


Championship Rules

To determine the annual Georgia Barbecue Championship winner, rankings will be pulled from KCBS scores from the OVERALL totals from each event. The five (5) highest OVERALL scores from participating contests for each team will be totaled to determine the Championship winner. In order to participate, teams must follow KCBS Rules & Regulations.

Teams may compete in as many or few participating contests as they choose. In the event of a tie, scores will fall back on the HIGHEST SINGLE OVERALL SCORE. If scores are still tied, a coin toss will determine the overall winner.

Please Note: Team names are extremely important. It is each team’s responsibility to verify their name is listed correctly on each contest’s score sheets. KCBS Representatives can only verify spelling at each individual contest.
