The BBQ Pit challenge is open to all Humble ISD FFA Chapters and the Humble ISD Welding Class. Each year these respective schools enter their nominations for the BBQ Pit Challenge by November 15th and the pit building begins. Each school must keep track of all receipts for a bill of materials, along with dimensions and blueprints, and all of these items must be assembled in a record book for viewing by the Judges and Spectators. Judging will take place at the Public Plaza area of the Humble BBQ Cook-off and is open to the public. One Grand Champion and Reserve Grand Champion Pit will be chosen.
