It is the mission of the FBA to promote the uniquely American tradition of barbecuing meat over natural wood or charcoal-fired heat and smoke through education, family-friendly fellowship, and competition.
The Florida BBQ Association (FBA) sanctions competitions to provide a consistent manner in which to preside over the event and make sure that everything runs smoothly and that competitors are judged fairly and equally.
Additionally, FBA selects one contest as its’ State Championship event, which enables automatic qualifications by winners for national level competition events.
For anyone interested in organizing a BBQ contest to be sanctioned by the FBA, the Organizer’s Manual is the ideal place to learn all about running an event. The Organizer’s Manual can be downloaded from here: Organizer Manual
