The Big BBQ Bash is a Kansas City Barbeque Society (KCBS) sanctioned competition. KCBS sanctions barbecue and grilling competitions across the U.S. and promotes barbecue as America's cuisine. In addition, KCBS has an extensive Certified Barbecue Judging program.  It is the largest society of barbecue enthusiasts in the world.

Former Governor Bill Haslam proclaimed the Blount County Big BBQ Bash as a state championship, making the competition a qualifier for the American Royal Barbecue Cook-Off and Jack Daniel’s World Championship Invitational Barbecue.

Since its inception in 2007, the Big BBQ Bash has raised more than $150,000 for charitable causes in Blount County. All proceeds from the 2019 Big BBQ Bash will benefit the Helen Ross McNabb Center's Military Services in Blount County.
