The Greater Omaha Barbeque Society (GOBS) is again proud to host the best BBQ contest in the Midwest – the 22nd Annual State Barbeque Championship of Nebraska. Again this year we will return to The Station House at Sokol Park in La Platte, NE. This beautifully shaded, park-like location, located off Hwy 75, just north of the Platte River or 5 miles south of Offutt AFB, provides an atmosphere that enhances the fun and excitement we all know is a big part of competition barbeque.
Contestant check-in is Friday August 15th. KCBS sanctioned meat categories to be judged on Saturday include Chicken, Pork Ribs, Pork Butt/Shoulder, Brisket and an optional 5th category – Salmon.
In addition to the meat categories, other contests are: Side Dish, Nebraska Dry Bean and Dessert.
On Friday evening, contests include Barbeque Sauce (red and other), Best Hospitality Team (decorate your cooking area to this years’ theme – Tailgating – and win cash prizes); Kids Que – two divisions: ages 5-10 and ages 11-15; and People’s Choice. Prize money, trophies and ribbons will be awarded in all categories. This year the pay out will be $10,000!
This contest, the “Original” State Barbeque Championship of Nebraska, continues to operate under sanction of the Kansas City Barbeque Society (KCBS). All meat judges are trained in the rules of judging KCBS sanctioned contests.
We invite you to join us on August 15-16 at The Station House at Sokol Park in La Platte, Nebraska, to compete with other teams from throughout the Midwest and beyond. For competition at its best, there is no better time of year or better place to be than among old and new-found friends and fellow Barbequers! We treat our contestants like family – and it shows!
