Jar-Ja-Q Competes in the National BBQ Cup

Welcome to the National BBQ Cup!

On Nov 15th-16th Jar-Ja-Q will compete in the National BBQ Cup in Cumming, GA. The NBC is a Kansas City BBQ Society sanctioned event with over $23,000 in prize money!

Located in the foothills of the North Georgia Mountains, the city of Cumming and their wonderful fairground facility is the host of this 2 day event benefiting three of our local charities.

With a variety of different food vendors, arts and crafts vendors, product demonstrations, live entertainment, and a kids zone that will contain a huge variety of fun for the kids and at the heart, of course, the KCBS sanctioned bbq cook-off that will include an opportunity for you to taste championship Que and decide for yourself just which is the best. There’s sure to be something for everyone!

Last year, we participated in the People’s Choice for chicken wings and pulled pork and competed in the chicken, pork, ribs and sauce competitions. While we did not win any of the categories, we had a BLAST participating and look forward to reconnecting with all of our new friends at this year’s competition!

If you are unfamiliar with the KCBS competitions, they score on a 9 point scale (9 being perfect) with 6 judges grading on appearance, taste and tenderness.

Jar-Ja-Q averaged the following (on a 9 point scale):

Pork: 7.86
Ribs: 7.8
Chicken: 7.8
Chicken Wings: 8.26
Sauce: 8.2

Although all of the teams had to deal with changing weather conditions Friday night we were very pleased with our scores! When you order from Jar-Ja-Q you are getting competition quality BBQ delivered to you!
