Seeking BBQ Judges

If you love ribs, this is THE job for YOU!

Do you have what it takes? Judge nominations now being accepted!
This year we lowered the nomination fee to $10. Voted-in judges will be selected to join WQAD Chief Meteorologist Eric Sorensen, WLPO Morning Radio Show host Rod Thorson, LBA President Bart Hartauer, plus Chef Sarah from HyVee in Peru.

The top four voted-in judges will be part of the 8-person judging panel (4 voted-in + 4 honorary judges listed above). Candidates with the most votes at 9 pm on Wednesday, 9/4 will be part of the eight-person panel. In the event that more than 20 BBQ teams sign up prior to the judging cutoff on 9/5, two sets of six judges will be utilized – allowing the top eight vote-getters to be chosen. The top judges will be notified by 10 am on Thursday, 9/6.  Judges will report to the lobby of the old Central Garage building at the NW corner of First and Gooding Streets at 5:15 pm for a judge's meeting on Friday, 9/6.

Voting money collected helps to offset LBA event costs, marketing, beautification efforts, and our minimal operating expenses – right back into your community!
