Variety...the spice of life

By Simone Wichers-Voss

An integral and highly important aspect to a barbecue competition is the judging of the entries.

Recently, due to continued requests from numerous cooking teams the 12-member NCBC board voted to “shake things up” and try another sanctioning association.
