BBQ Person of
the Year

The BBQ Person of the Year contest, hosted by Grilling with Rich, is an annual award, and is the only BBQ award, where the members of the barbecue community select a pitmaster, sauce maker and restaurateur who has had a positive impact in the barbecue community during the past year.

In its first year, Barbecue Person of the Year had over 3,000 votes for the winner of the contest. In addition to nominating select individuals, BBQ Person of the Year gives out automatic bids to the Grand Champions of the biggest barbecue competitions of the season, including Memphis in May, the American Royal, the Jack Daniels Invitational, the Sam’s Club/KCBS Team of the Year and Kingsford Invitational.
