WHO WE ARE
The Georgia BBQ Championship (GBC) is the state points race for KCBS Sanctioned barbecue contests in Georgia. By recognizing the achievements of cook teams at the state level we add another competition benchmark for teams to measure themselves by in addition to the KCBS Team of the Year.
Each season the GBC brings you a series of contests that meet our standards for excellence; the contests on the calendar that deliver a superior experience for all that attend - cooks, judges and the general public. Regardless of which hat you might be wearing that weekend, you can be assured that GBC Qualifying events will truly offer the best of Georgia barbecue.
