All BBQ entries must be cooked on site. This means no parboiling at home then finishng onsite. Fires shall be of wood or charcoal, use of electricity to cook is not allowed.Anyone who loves to fire-up BBQ is welcome to compete in this friendly neighborhood cook-off. Just fill out the enclosed application and get ready! And, please, amateur cooks only–REMEMBER, if you have ever made money cooking you are considered a pro! Where, How and When? The Blast area will be on Vaughn drive between West St. and Mulberry St., and this area will be open for your use at 6:00 am, Friday, August 18th. You must bring your own BBQ rig. Everyone will have an area approximately 12′ x 12′. Please bring a fire-retardant, approved canopy if you wish. You should cook over charcoal, or you may bring wood, chips, special briquettes, etc. Electricity will not be allowed. There will be a cook’s meet­ing with any special instructions late in the afternoon. At that time, you will be instructed how and when to provide samples for judging. Prizes will be handed out during a break in the music Friday evening.  What? Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places in these categories: Ribs, Pork, Beef, Poultry, and Game/Other Meats (rab­bit, goat, venison, etc). Special prizes will also be awarded to the best Original Sauce, Best Original Spice Rub, and the Best Team Awards. If you wish your sauce and/or rub to be judged, a con­tainer will provided for you.  Why? What could be more fun than sharing sharing samples of your favorite family BBQ with your neighbor? And all the while you are listening to great blues music, watching balloons soar in the air, meeting new people, and generally having a great town party on the Ohio River! We’ll see you there! Newer and More Improved Backyard BBQ Blast Rules

  1. If you purchase your wristbands when you make your Backyard Blast application by Aug. 1st, you will receive 10 food/drink tickets per wristband. How bad can that be?
  2. Only original sauces and spice rubs qualify for award judging.
  3. All cooking must be carried out in a hygienic and safe manner. All raw meats must be kept on ice if not on the fire. All other safe and accepted practices must be followed.
  4. Entrants may enter one or all categories, and must provide the following for judging:

Ribs -      1/2 slab (8-10 ribs) Pork -     1/2 lb meat (chopped, pulled, sliced, etc) Beef -     1/2 lb meat (chopped, pulled, sliced, etc)Poultry- 1/2 chicken (in whatever form available) Game-     1/2 lb meat (chopped, pulled, sliced, etc)

    I’m new to this stuff, is there anything i need for the backyard blast like any permits?

    • Kathy Ayers says:

      No Jason,
      Bring your grill, your competition meats, and get ready to have fun! Permits are not necessary as you are not permitted to sell your food — just cook it, get it judged, and reap the benefit of your day’s effort. Glad you are participating — Backyard has more fun than a person ought to be allowed!

    • Kathy Ayers says:

      No Jason, just your grill, or smoker, or whatever you like to cook with (nothing that uses electricity). Go to the Backyard Blast part of this website to download an application and the rules. The Backyard committee will place you on event morning (Friday, August 21st) you’ll have a cooks meeting and then…let the games begin :)

    • Kathy Ayers says:

      No Jason, permits are not necessary. Go to the Backyard Page on this website — download the rules and application, send it in with a check for $25 — then on event day bring your grill or smoker (nothing that needs electricity–as it’s not allowed) and let the games begin! Have fun!

    • Kathy Ayers says:

      Hi Jason,
      No — the 2016 Backyard Blast application is now online. Go to BBQ click on Backyard and then 2016 application. You can download it, fill it out, and mail it in with the $25 fee.
      There are rules and info on that page as well.
      If you have any further questions please eamil madisonribberfest@gmail.com and I will forward it to someone who can help.
      Thanks,

    Do you have detailed scoring archives for 2005, 06, 07, 08. My teams name was Grill Sergeants.

    Thanks,
    George

    • Kathy Ayers says:

      George,
      I don’t think we have them from that far back — but I will check and get back to you.

  3. mike paine says:

    Hello. Long time festival goer and bbq enthusiast. Have never entered the “competition” but man it looks so fun. A couple friends and I would love to learn more about getting entrance to do some ‘queing next year (something about staying up all night smoking meat sounds awesome). How early can we sign up for 2016 and is there a fee? Thanks much. Mike Paine

    • Kathy Ayers says:

      Hi Mike,
      We now have the 2016 KCBS application on this website. Would love to have you que this year :)
      Thanks for your interest!

  4. Mark Porter says:

    Had a great experience as a Backyard first timer this year. Many thanks to all for your work. Question: info on website says Backyard is Saturday, Aug. 20 in 2016. Did the Backyard move to Saturday next year? Just double checking.

    • Kathy Ayers says:

      Hi Mark, no not Saturday — sorry for the miss print — it should now say Friday, August 19th. Thanks for keeping my feet to the fire :)

  5. Mike Ballard says:

    On the Backyard Blast BBQ entry form are the $20 wristbands for team members or are they for additional entries into Ribberfest? Sorry, may have overlooked this elsewhere just want to make sure I fill this out and get it back to you. This will be our first time visiting Ribberfest, looking forward to it!

    • Kathy Ayers says:

      Great Mike, we will be happy to have you join us. No you can purchase as many wristbands as you like with your application. As long as we have your application before August 1st you will get the wristbands with food coupons — but if it comes after August 1st your wristbands will be without food coupons. Your wristbands will be waiting for you when you check in for Backyard on Friday, August 19th

  6. J. M. says:

    Thinking about joining in on the fun this year – first time at this. Haven’t really came up with a ‘name’, but I would like know, is there a data base that I need to make sure that I do NOT duplicate someone’s team/single name? Thanks.

    • Kathy Ayers says:

      Thanks for considering being in the competition. You can look on this website at the names entered in the KCBS and Backyard. Looking forward to having you join us.

  7. Todd says:

    Hi thinking of entering the contest but have a question.
    Do I bring my own turn in boxes or do you provide them?
    I’ve never beenin a contest before and I think it would be really fun.

    • Kathy Ayers says:

      Hi Todd, Thanks for entering Madison Ribberfest BBQ competition. We provide the turn in boxes. Enjoy and good luck!

  8. Stacey Mac says:

    Is there a way to publish or retrieve our turn in numbers from last year so we may check where we finished? After the event it would be nice to see a list of team names and box #s as a post event evaluation

  9. Matt says:

    Hi –
    I am interested in the the Backyard BBQ Blast. Are there still spots available for 2016? If so, I’ll be mailing my form soon.

    Thanks!

  10. Greg says:

    HI, I am entered in the Backyard event, is it ok to trim, inject and season meat at home or does it have to be done on site?

  11. Kevin says:

    Question on the dessert and anything butt turn in. how many samples do we turn in?
