The American Royal Association is proud to honor and host the Barbecue Hall of Fame®. Each year, three new members are inducted during May, National BBQ Month, who have impacted the world of barbecue. During the American Royal World Series of Barbecue® in the Fall, we continue to celebrate these new inductees and our past inductees through events including an on-stage Hall of Fame induction ceremony where each new member is presented with one-of-a kind custom trophy consisting of a BBQ butcher block and bronzed ribs.
