NBBQA Press Kit

National Barbecue and Grilling Association Press Kit

Founded in 1991, the National Barbecue & Grilling Association (NBBQA) is a 501 (c)(6) nonprofit organization headquartered in Naperville, IL.

 The NBBQA does not advocate a particular style or definition of barbecue and does not sanction barbecue competitions. Instead, we are dedicated to bringing all interests of the barbecue industry together to share, connect, celebrate and educate.

From restaurateurs, caterers, and suppliers to competitors and the public at large, the NBBQA's goals are to promote the image of the industry, facilitate networking, foster new business opportunities and educate the public about the art and enjoyment of barbecue.
