FBA Event Sanctioning

The Florida BBQ Association (FBA) sanctions competitions in Alabama, Georgia and Florida 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 from each of the three states as its’ State Championship event, which enables automatic qualifications by winners for national level competition events.
