Call for Judges
2022 Cooking FOR KIDS at Camp Korey
Registration Deadline – Sept 12th, 2022

As this is a fully sanctioned traditional 4 meat PNWBA event, the Camp Korey Charity BBQ is a new event that provides a BBQ vending event raising money for charity along with a major cooking competition thrown in. There is a total prize purse of... $30,000 for the single competition making it the richest single event cooking competition in the Northwest!

Here's a unique opportunity for our judges. PNWBA could use some assistance with a number of tasks on Saturday. If you can be a Saturday volunteer at the camp, we'll be happy to arrange for free lodging there on Friday and Saturday nights and then you'll be in place for Sunday judging. It's a charity event for a wonderful camp dedicated to kids who can't attend other camps like the YMCA because of significant medical issues. This is our way of helping in that wonderful mission. To sign up to volunteer on Saturday and get one or two nights of free lodging (your choice) please email Pat Maddock directly and as soon as you can at patmaddock@cbbain.com.

Signup Info:

Important... You must be logged into this website with your email and password in order to access the registration for the event. It is helpful to know your judging number. You can view this by clicking on your profile and looking at your membership information prior to registering.

We are planning on 3 judging tables. We strongly recommend that if the signups are full to signup for the waiting list.

We are looking for the following:

  • 18 Judges. Judges will be selected with preference for PNWBA Certified BBQ Judges. If you are not a PNWBA CBJ but are a KCBS CBJ, then you may be placed in a volunteer position or moved to a wait list as PNWBA CBJ's are given preference.
  • 3 Table Captains. Preference will be to certified as Table Captains.
  • 3-4 Volunteers, i.e. Food Runners, Meat Wranglers, and general helpers.

Due to the fluid nature of this event, signing up does not guarantee a judging spot. Please be willing to volunteer as needed. Should there be a reduction in judges needed, an email will be sent to see if you would wish to volunteer.

The head judges will make the final assessment of volunteers and choose the seated judges. Tables will also be adjusted by the Head Judges at the event to try and even out the judge levels and experience.


Please sign up for the waitlist if initial spots are full and we need to replace folks who had to cancel. We had to use several folks from the waitlist for our past events.

Safety Requirements:

Current Covid safety protocols by the state, county and facility will be observed. Table Captains and other volunteers handling turn-in boxes or food require provided gloves.
