At Prime Uve the teams will have to prove their worth in six categories.
Next to the four classics KCBS, Chicken, Ribs, Pork and Brisket, are two extra inspired by Prime Uve’s grape distillates (Prime Uve Bianche, Nere and Oro).
CHICKEN, white and dark chicken meat.
RIBS, smoked pork ribs served in Kansas City style, smoked and glazed with barbecue sauce, or in Memphis style, i.e. with a dry spice rub.
PORK, this preparation is usually made with Boston Butt, a pork cut that includes a part of the shoulder and the neck.
BRISKET, Beef brisket cooked and smoked in one piece.

In addition, there will be 3 teams, selected through a draw among all teams that competed in one of the previous editions of the Prime Uve Invitational Barbecue Championship, who did not qualify for the fourth.
