2021 Team of the Year Awards Rules


The Nevada Barbecue Association (NVBBQA) mission is "to mentor

and promote barbecue and the barbecue lifestyle in our local neighborhoods and throughout the state of Nevada." In an effort to recognize the barbecue talent in Nevada and to promote club membership, the Nevada BBQ Association will recognize backyard and professional barbecue teams with annual Team of the Year awards.

Nevada KCBS Pro BBQ Team of the Year

 

The Nevada KCBS Pro BBQ Team of the Year is a yearlong points chase by eligible team members competing in KCBS-sanctioned (non-invitational) BBQ contests held January 1, 2021-December 31, 2021, in Nevada, Arizona, Utah and California.

The KCBS Pro Team of the Year award will be based on top scores from each team's top three cooks. Each team's final overall score for each eligible contest will be added together. If a team competes in more than three contests, their standings will be adjusted accordingly.

 

The NVBBQA will do its best to track points for all qualifying teams and contests; however, it is ultimately the team member's responsibility to notify the Association when it competes, especially in out-of-state contests. Points will be awarded based on the results published at kcbs.us.

 

The standings will be updated monthly and posted at NVBBQ.org.

 

KCBS Pro Team of the Year awards will be presented to the Grand Champion and Reserve Grand Champion and 3rd place

 

 

 

Nevada SCA Pro BBQ Team of the Year

 

The Nevada SCA Pro BBQ Team of the Year is a yearlong points chase by eligible team members competing in SCA-sanctioned (non-invitational) Steak Cookoffs held January 1, 2021-December 31, 2021, in Nevada, Arizona, Utah and California.

The SCA Pro Team of the Year award will be based on top scores from each team's top three cooks. Each team's final overall score for each eligible contest will be added together. If a team competes in more than three contests, their standings will be adjusted accordingly. A double counts as two contests. A triple counts as three.

 

SCA does not post its scores online; therefore, it is each teams’ responsibility to notify the NVBBQA when they compete and how they place. They should email the final official SCA score sheet plus a picture of their SCA ticket for that contest to info.nvbbqa@gmail.com. This is a requirement for scores to be admitted into the Team of the Year contest. 

 

The standings will be updated monthly and posted at NVBBQ.org.

 

SCA Pro Team of the Year awards will be presented to the Grand Champion and Reserve Grand Champion.

                         

 

 

 

Nevada Backyard BBQ Team of the Year

 

The Nevada Backyard BBQ Team of the Year is a yearlong points chase by eligible team members from qualifying backyard contests held January 1, 2021-December 31, 2021, in Nevada.

 

Qualifying contests for this season will include any Association-sponsored backyard contents, such as Backyard Rib Cookoff, Thrill of the Grill, Spring Training, Ribfest and ancillary contests associated with club-sponsored cookoffs.

 

Team of the Year will be based on each team's top three cooks in eligible contests. Every eligible team at a qualifying contest will receive points (see below) based on how they finish. Their top three scores will be added together to determine the winner. If a team competes in more than three contests, their standings will be adjusted accordingly.

The NVBBQA will track points for all qualifying teams and contests. Points will be awarded based on the results provided by event organizers.

 

At events where a Grand Champion is named (Thrill of the Grill, Spring Training, etc.), the overall score will count toward Team of the Year – not the individual categories. In events where there are individual categories that don’t count toward a Grand Championship, such as Ribfest and ancillary contests, each category will earn points toward the Team of the Year.

 

For example, at Spring Training, cooks will earn points for their overall score. They will not earn points for chicken, points for ribs, etc. At Ribfest, cooks can earn points for ribs and for sauce and for beans. At an SCA cook, teams can earn SCA Pro Team of the Year points for their steak entry and Backyard Team of the Year points for ancillary contests when the contest is put on by the club.

 

In the event of a tie, total points scored will be considered. Overall scores for each cookoff can range from 180-700 points. Therefore, the team’s total overall points scored will be divided by the number of entries the teams competed in to determine the value. The team with the highest score based on that calculation will break the tie.  

 The standings will be updated monthly and posted at NVBBQ.org.

 Backyard Team of the Year awards will be presented to the Grand Champion, Reserve Grand Champion and 3rd place
