Master Series

This is the most popular type of contest KCBS sanctions. A Master Series requires teams to cook 4 meats (Chicken, Pork Ribs, Pork Butt, & Brisket). The cooking source at a Master Series shall be of wood, wood pellets or charcoal. KCBS Rules and regulations apply. Master Series are eligible for American Royal and Jack Daniels World Championship, upon meeting qualifying criteria. In addition, all teams who participate in a Master Series earn points towards KCBS Team of the Year awards presented at our annual banquet. Cumulative points for only the four (4) KCBS categories will determine Grand Champion and Reserve Grand Champion.
