The South Carolina Barbeque Association (SCBA) will hold a class in Columbia to train new barbeque judges this July.
The SCBA has held classes in Charleston, Myrtle Beach, Lexington, Beaufort, Greenville, Aiken and Florence, but Columbia is a favorite location since it is central to the whole state and the SCBA tries to hold at least one seminar in Columbia each year.
This all-day seminar is designed to start a person on the path to becoming a full-fledged certified barbeque judge. It is the first of a five-step process towards that goal.
The barbeque judging class in Columbia will be held on Saturday, July 12. The class will use the recreation hall at St. Paul's Lutheran Church, 1715 Bull St., in the heart of Columbia. The seminar that will last from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Cost is $45, which includes lunch. Membership in SCBA is $35.
Anyone who would like to become a certified barbeque judge should contact Lake High, president of the SCBA, at Lhigh1@sc.rr.com for information on how to join the South Carolina Barbeque Association and how to become a certified judge.
