Hayward has competed in BBQ competitions since 1994 and has numerous cooking awards. His first-place win in the chicken category at Tropicana’s National Finals BBQ Cook-off & Party in 1996 put California BBQ on the map. As a member of the National BBQ Association he became a national ambassador for the CBBQA and brought national awareness to the CBBQA and its contributions to BBQ. Hayward has judged over 150 BBQ contests, cooked over 100 BBQ competitions and remains active competing and judging BBQ all over the country, as well as marketing his line of national award winning Barbeque Sauces.
The inaugural class of the California BBQ Association Hall of Fame includes Dan Cannon and Gene Goycochea. Both made their mark successfully competing in BBQ and serve as an example to others of spirit and comradery.
To continue the California BBQ Association Hall of Fame tradition, the Board of Directors created a Hall of Fame Selection Committee.
1. Each year, the Board of Directors (BOD) will designate three (3) representatives, consisting of current BOD members, and the Hall of Fame (HOF) will designate three (3) representatives, consisting of current HOF members. Names of representatives will be sent to the BOD for confirmation. If not all representatives have been designated by the BOD or HOF by September 1st, they will forfeit those representative’s votes for that year.
Directors serving on the Hall of Fame Selection Committee are not eligible for candidacy to the California BBQ Association Hall of Fame during the year(s) they serve on the Hall of Fame Selection Committee.
The Hall of Fame Selection Committee will elect a committee chair to officiate and conduct the selection.
2. Nominations by active CBBQA members will be submitted in writing (by email) to the Hall of Fame Selection Committee between November 1st and November 20th and must include supporting evidence why the person is being nominated.
”’Nominees meeting the following criteria will become eligible candidates:”’
Minimum of five years membership in the CBBQA
Currently active membership in CBBQA
History of community service through CBBQA projects
History of competition (as cook, judge, rep or organizer)
History of educational service (training new teams or judges, community education, etc.)
Under certain circumstances where extraordinary contributions have been made, a member may be eligible for nomination if not all criteria are met, as determined by the Hall of Fame Selection Committee.
3. From the eligible candidates, the Hall of Fame Selection Committee may select up to three (3) inductees who receive a minimum of 60% of the vote by the committee. Committee chair will notify the CBBQA President of the selected inductee(s), by December 13th but inductee(s) will not be announced until the Annual Awards Banquet.
