About IBCA

International Barbeque Cookers Association’s purpose is to develop and bolster equitable competitive Barbeque cooking internationally.”  We give competitive cookers the peace of mind when their product is placed in the judging area. IBCA shall know no boundaries nationally or internationally.

IBCA History

In 1988 nine (9) interested parties (Doug Beich, Terry Blount, Henry Cutaia (d), Jim Hudgins,
Tom Kennedy, Obie Obermark, Charlie Rogers, Jeff Shivers, and Waldo Strein) met for the first time in Irving, Texas to discuss the possibilities of starting a new BBQ organization. We spent the first year writing a constitution, by-laws, and cook-off rules. The intent of the IBCA is to offer a set of uniform cook-off rules that are fair and “user friendly” for the cooks. In 1989 we opened up the membership in IBCA. We currently have over 700 members.

Competition BBQ

As the sport of competition BBQ cooking grows IBCA has grown with it. From the beginning until now we have built a great reputation of assisting BBQ promoters, providing information and offering a fair judging system to all participants.

Top Cooks Top 10

Membership and Top Cooks runs from July 1st to June 30th of each Year.

IBCA will recognize a Cook of the Year based on points earned July 1st thru June 30th of each year. Cook of the Year points will be accumulated based strictly on the points that are earned at an IBCA event. There will be no multipliers based on size of contest. You must be an IBCA member at the time of the event to earn points. At the end of of the contest year the top 10 winners will be awarded a prize to be announced. All points accrued from Sept 1st 2015 thru now will be adjusted to reflect this new point system. Any ties will be broken the same as at a cook off. Brisket will be first tie breaker, then ribs, then chicken, then Pork Butt. If this does not break a tie then the BOD will decide the tie breaker. Points are assigned based on the following;
For each category 10pts – 1st place | 9pts – 2nd place | 8pts – 3rd place | 7pts – 4th place | 6pts – 5th place | 5pts – 6th place | 4pts – 7th place | 3pts – 8th place | 2pts – 9th place | 1pt – 10th place
Overall Points are determined by a summary of points from the primary categories.

IBCA Sponsors

IBCA is proud to announce that B&B Charcoal is the official Charcoal of IBCA.

Since 1961 B&B Charcoal Inc. has manufactured/distributed a complete line of quality charcoal products made from 100% natural selected woods. Through our unique processes we are able to rid our wood of the unwanted foreign materials including resins/acids. What remains is only natural fiber, accounting for the subtle, natural flavor that foods capture when cooked with our B&B Charcoal products. That process has made the B&B brand “The Expert’s Choice” for more than 50 Years!

There are many reasons why I choose to cook IBCA competitions. Of these reasons, integrity is the most important to me. I know that when I enter an IBCA event, I can rest assure that the judging and awards will be handled with professionalism and trust-worthiness. I really enjoy seeing the pride IBCA judges exude when working the event. Consistency of rules is another reason I prefer IBCA. I know that wherever I go in the state, as long as it’s an IBCA cookoff, I will have the same set of rules as the over events I’ve competed in. IBCA doesn’t allow their judges to create new or omit existing rules. Finally, I would say the camaraderie of the competitors in IBCA is a driving reason why I choose to cook events sanctioned by the organization. I love pulling up on site and seeing friends from around the state that I would have never met had it not been for IBCA. When you walk around the cookoffs you’ll see many cooks hanging out together, sharing a drink and engaging in spirited conversations. These are just a few of the many reasons why I cook and will continue to cook IBCA events.

Why International Barbecue Cookers Association?   Back to top

l

Why do I cook IBCA?

We cook IBCA events because it’s an organized event. “This is how it’s gonna go, these are the rules, pay to play and have. Nice day!” We have gained something through IBCA that we weren’t expecting at all, and that’s a whole new group of family and friends. Making your rounds at a cook off to see everyone is my favorite part. (Winning money isn’t so bad either!) All these cookers become a part of your life, and for that we feel truly blessed! Also now that the kids are getting outside and cooking is the best thing yet! This BBQ world is like a never ending learning experience and I’m glad these kids are interested and are becoming the next generation of cookers! Thanks IBCA!

Reba beard/ Justin Flores
Family grillers

Why IBCA?

I cook IBCA competition because I think they are the BEST sanctioning organization in Texas. Simply put they make sure all cooks are on a level playing field in the judging area. This means a lot. It shows they care about our product and that every cook has an equal opportunity.
