Welcome to the GBA

The Georgia Barbecue Association (GBA) has established itself as the second largest barbecue competition sanctioning organization in the state of Georgia. The GBA was conceived by a handful of individuals who thought it was time to let the rest of the nation know that the best barbecue comes from Georgia. The Georgia Barbecue Association has grown to over 450 members, 300+ certified judges, over 150 competition cook teams and sanctions over 20 contests per year throughout the state. These numbers continue to grow. We invite you to join us and become a part of the GBA Family.
