Registration for the 2023 Famous Dave's All-Star BBQ Series is open (and FREE) to all BBQ teams in good standing with WFC or other sanctioned bodies. However, this is an Invitational process and the organizer (World Food Championships) will be selecting teams for the series based on the proximity of the team to the contest and the priority of requests. As such, teams may register for multiple locations. But a team will only end up with one contest selection once all requests are received. If teams have to cancel prior to their selected event, teams on a waitlist will be contacted and invited to compete. More information on all of this will be discussed soon during WFC Facebook Lives; but in the meantime, we encourage teams to make their selections and submit
their forms quickly.
In addition to the prize purse (as listed below), the Grand and Reserve Champions of each contest will receive a waived entry Golden Ticket to the 2023 World Barbecue Championships in Dallas, Texas, November 8-12, 2023.
Grand Champion - $1,000 plus qualification into the 2023 WFC Barbecue Championship
Reserve Grand - $400 plus qualification into the 2023 WFC Barbecue Championship
Each category payout -
1st - $500
2nd - $400
3rd - $300
*Anything you want. Must be served on a silver platter
If your team is selected, a contest representative will be in touch with contest rules and load-in information.
Please NOTE: All teams must commit to a public sampling of chicken wings (100 each) after their last turn-in. Wings will be provided to each team free of charge.
