The Memphis Barbecue Network has
made several changes for the 2016/2017 BBQ competition season. These changes were made in an effort to
reduce overall costs for teams and contests. The changes are as follows:
The MBN will consolidate the Pro and Challenger
division into one comprehensive contest network in 2016.
This standard contest format will feature blind
preliminary judging coupled with on-site finals in 3 categories: Hog, Pulled Pork and Ribs.
After the MBN Invitational on February 19-20, 2016,
the invitational will be eliminated.
The Team of the Year program will be expanded to
cash and prizes of over $31,000 for the contest year 2016 and awarded at the
Queball in 2017. Prizes will be awarded
to the Team of the Year and the top 10 teams in each category.
The MBN Board would like to thank
you for your continued support. Should
