The ABA was formed in 2006 to oversee the Alabama Governor’s Cup, which is awarded to the professional barbecue teams with the highest overall points in their top five contests on the Alabama Barbecue Trail, which consists of sanctioned contests throughout the state. For a schedule and links to the contests click here. We will also be promoting other BBQ contests such as backyard cookoffs as part of the Alabama BBQ Trail. The ABA will promote all of the these contests nationally at other professional barbecue contests to attract tourism to the state and to each of the host cities.
2013 Dues are due for Event and Individual Memberships

We are happy to announce that the Alabama BBQ Association is now offering individual, family and Cook team membership to the organization!
