  • The promoter of any SCA sanctioned event has the right to not allow a Certified Judge to not judge at their event.  
  • Check back frequently for new events, we also post new events on 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.
  • SCA does not guarantee the judges the right to take food after an event.  
  • All Judge Meetings will be 1 hour before the first turn in unless otherwise specified on the event flier.
