See calendar below for judging opportunities and Classes

  • Must be SCA Certified Judge to sign up to judge an event
  • Must be 18 years old to judge
  • Judges may not drink alcohol at the judging table
  • Judges memberships must be current to judge any SCA event
  • When signing up for an event, you may be asked to be a Table Captain, Tasting Judge or a Turn In Captain.
  • The promoter of any SCA sanctioned event has the right to not allow a Certified Judge to not judge at their event.  
  • Listen to Ribeye Radio (the SCA radio show podcast) for new event updates, check back frequently for new events or join the Steak Cookoff Association Group page on Facebook.
  • A full judge is not a good judge. We do not want our judges to judge multiple events (BBQ and Steak) on the same day.
  • If a spouse is cooking in an event you may judge only categories that your spouse is not competing in.  
  • Final judging seats will be determined at the events by random drawing.  All that are signed up and attend event will serve as either a Tasting Judge, Turn In Captain or Table Captain.
