It's one of the the richest cooking competition in the Northwest!

We will have a special Salmon category after the standard 4 meat turn-ins. Please sign up for salmon on the separate Salmon judging registration at https://pnwba.com/event-5186446. Signing up for the BBQ event does not automatically enroll you in the Salmon judging.
