Judges are always appreciated and wanted!
To judge a BBQ competition is an honorary assignment that is taken very seriously in the BBQ sport. As a SBQA certified judge you are welcome to all WBQA’s competitions around the globe. On the WBQA website you can find where and when national and international competitions take place. As a judge you are always welcome!
A judge assesses the dishes handed in by the team according to a set of criteria. Taste, texture, appearance are some of the criteria. You judge blindly without knowing which team has handed in each dish in order for the judging to be as fair as possible. To make sure the judging is clear SBQA/WBQA uses a predetermined scale så everyone knows what the score means. The judges are also encourage to give written feedback that the team gets access to after the competition. The feedback is very appreciated and the teams use it to develop their skill and dishes.
The training and certification takes place in Sweden when we have enough interested. Usually the trainings take place in Landskrona or Alingsås but can be held at other places if there is enough interest.
Since there is a lot of tasting and eating during these trainings it comes with a 500kr fee which also includes the yearly fee to WBQA.
