The purpose of the IBCA is to promulgate fair and equitable competitive barbeque cooking through the development of standard rules and unbiased judging methodologies that can be applied internationally and to provide a sanctioning authority which will guarantee fair competition.

IBCA ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING & AWARDS BANQUET AUGUST 13-14, 2021

We are actively working on the plans for the 2021 meeting. We will be finalizing the details in the next few weeks and will make the announcement of the location and hotel information.

We will be opening nominations for the Hall of Fame, Citation of Merit and our newest award, the Jeff Shivers Sportsmanship award, in February. Once nominations are open, there will be a link for the nominations on the IBCA website, and it will include the information on the qualifications for the awards.
