World-Class BBQ Education, Programs and Events
Our programs and events bring experts and enthusiasts together to drive innovation—and have a good time. We’d love for you to join us!
The National Barbecue Association has been committed to supporting the needs of its members and the barbecue community for over 20 years. To help further that goal, we have developed a number of special projects. Some, like the Annual Conference, have been around from the beginning. Others, such as the Apprentice Program, have only recently been launched. However, all of them, regardless of their age, promote our mission to share and expand the diverse culture of barbecue through networking and education.
