The One and Only British Columbia BBQ Championships
Sunday May 5, 2019 11am – 2pm
For the main BBQ event there are four categories: pork shoulder, beef brisket, chicken, and pork ribs which are turned in for judging at the top of each hour from 11-2pm. The extras samples the teams have are then offered to visitors, while supplies last, who have a sampling wristband from the Burn Fund.
The meats are cooked for a long time at low temperatures indirectly by only the use of wood and charcoal fires. The competitors cook on small Weber Smokey Mountain Cookers all the way up to huge trailer pit smokers.
Provincial Proclamation makes this event The BC BBQ Championships and The Pacific Northwest Barbecue Association sanctions it. The BC BBQ Championships are recognized by The Kansas City Barbecue Society.
The BC BBQ Championships are also judged by our sanctioning body the Pacific Northwest BBQ Association. All categories are judged by appearance, texture and taste and further details on PNWBA rules can be found under the rules tab at http://www.pnwba.com
The BC BBQ Competition Entry Fee with Public Sampling is $99 (only until March 31, 2018 – then the price is raised to $125) and includes entry in all 4 BBQ categories on Sunday, as well as BC’s Best Darn Burger and Chefs’ Challenge competitions on Saturday.
The BC BBQ Competition Entry Fee without Public Sampling is $150 and also includes entry in all 4 BBQ categories on Sunday, as well as BC’s Best Darn Burger and Chefs’ Challenge Competitions on Saturday. Competitors who are unable to sample but are willing to provide their extra BBQ for public sampling can let us know and we will have the samples picked up and sampled to the public at our firefighters welcome tent. They can then register at the lesser entry fee above.
