Barbecue Summer School

Man, if summer school consisted of smoked brisket, ribs, and pulled pork, I’d have failed every grade. And often. To the tune of this being my 37th year of kindergarten often.

Summer school didn’t have competition barbecue courses, however, and I was forced to learn about barbecue on the streets. You don’t have to, though. The KCBS offers courses not just in summer but throughout the year. Here’s a list of what you can take and where during National Barbecue Month (May) and into June.

Certified Judging Classes
To become a CBJ, just attend one of the hundreds of classes conducted by KCBS every year throughout the country. In a half-day’s time, you’ll learn how to grade world-class chicken, pulled pork, ribs and brisket – and taste them during the process! The CBJ fee also includes one year’s membership to KCBS.
