GOBS (Greater Omaha BBQ Society) was organized in 1992 by a handful of barbeque enthusiasts for the sole purpose of organizing the Original State Barbeque Championship of Nebraska and to promote BBQ. 2013 Marks our 21st Annual Contest in our 22nd year, which over the years has drawn cooking teams from as far away as Michigan and Texas.
We are proud to say that our contest is highly respected by regional and national barbeque committees, as well as with many cooking teams as one of the best run and professionally judged contests in the Midwest. Everywhere we go, be it the Des Moines Pork Festival in Iowa, the famed American Royal Contest in Kansas City, or even local area restaurants, we hear nothing but good things about GOBS and the The State Barbeque Championship of Nebraska.
Today, GOBS has grown to nearly 200 members. Many of us enjoy socializing once a month at Omaha area barbeque restaurants to share some of the areas finest barbeque cuisine, enjoy casual talk with our fellow members, and discuss our own personal barbeque secrets.
Membership into GOBS is a mere $30 per year (per couple) plus a one-time enrollment fee of $5. This entitles members to attend our monthly gatherings, attend our annual holiday party, special events, wine tours, and receive our newsletter we proudly call “Drippings”.
