• Do I need to sign up for the KCBS four-meat competition in order to compete in the steak event?
    Yes. Due to the limited campsites available, we are unable to accommodate steak-only competitors for this event. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
  • How do I sign up for the KCBS National Steak Championships?
    It’s easy! Simply sign up for the Golden State Battle and select the number of entries. One entry = one cook. For example, two teammates competing as a single team on Saturday may enter the steak contest separately. If you and a teammate would each like to compete, select two (2) entries when signing up. NOTE: You must provide the names of all cooks entering the steak contest in the ‘Additional Information’ field during checkout.

    Entry for this category is FREE!
