DID YOU KNOW?

The Florida BBQ Association (FBA) became a registered 501 c(7) non-profit corporation in the Summer of 2000.  Hatched by a small group of central Florida barbecue enthusiasts, they endeavored to create a barbecue organization that placed greater emphasis on being “cook team” friendly.  During the early formative years of the FBA, many “cook team” rules and practices were adopted that live on to this day.  For example: no garnish is required in a FBA turn-in box, only pure barbecue; the lowest judge’s score is not dropped, every judge’s assessment of a FBA turn-in box is given equal weight; and the time between meat category turn-ins is one hour instead of 30-minutes.  These are only a few of the features of a FBA contest that sets us apart from the other barbecue sanctioning bodies.  Now, almost 19 years later, the FBA has become one of the most renowned barbecue organizations in America.  In that time, we have gone from sanctioning only a few contests a year in Florida alone to over 30 contests a year across 5 states.  Our membership is almost 800 strong!  If you’re looking for a barbecue organization to call home, we’d love to have you.
