2022 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.

Team Eligibility
To be eligible, competing teams must be a paid member of the NVBBQA in good standing. The membership season is January 1-December 31, 2022. Team membership is $40. Past club members will have a grace period to renew their membership but must be paid in full by January 31, 2022. New teams who join the Association in 2022 will be eligible for the Rookie Team of the Year. New members will have a 15-day grace period to join after entering a contest for that contests’ points to be counted toward Rookie TOY.

Any NVBBQA paid member is eligible, regardless of their state of residency.

Nevada BBQ Association Team of the Year:
The Nevada BBQ Association Team of the Year is a yearlong points chase by eligible team members competing in any competition held in the state of Nevada. Qualifying competitions include:
• Roll the Dice in Vegas (SCA) – February 2022
• Spring Training (NVBBQA) – April 2022
• Best Dam BBQ Challenge (KCBS/SCA) – May 2022
• Grillin in the Desert (SCA) – October 2022
• Thrill of the Grill (NVBBQA) – November 2022
Note: Additional contests may be added at the discretion of the board. Teams will be notified of these competitions via the newsletter.


Points are collected based on the teams’ results in each category, not the overall contest. For example, in an SCA event, teams can collect points for each steak entry and/or each ancillary entry. For KCBS contests, points will be collected for chicken, ribs, pork and/or brisket, not the overall finish. Each team’s top five category scores will be counted toward Team of the Year. The person with the highest five scores will be named Grand Champion. In the event of a tie, the highest sixth score will break the tie.
