Welcome to the new NEBS web site.
The site features a fresh new look, better performance, and works more effectively on mobile devices. There have been substantial improvements in membership management, making it easier to create, manage, and renew your NEBS membership.  Keep an eye out for new content, including more information for the general public, contest organizers, judges, competitors, and vendors.


Interested in BBQ?

NEBS was founded to promote the traditions, lifestyle, and skills associated with outdoor cooking.  We offer classes, give cooking demos, sanction contests, organize social events, publish newsletters, and more. 


NEBS is a resource for regional contest organizers, competitors, and judges. Interested in hosting a contest or learning how to compete?  Check this site frequently for the latest updates.

Food Service

We connect vendors, competitors that vend, festival organizers, and restaurateurs to build and encourage BBQ offerings in the northeast.


NEBS is a 501(c)3 non-profit.  We educate, promote, and preserve the barbecue lifestyle primarily through society membership and volunteer programs.  We also accept individual and corporate donations, and in turn help support regional non-profits aligned with our mission.
