The Diamond Cup is awarded to the BBQ teams that compile the most Diamond Points in the State of Arkansas across sanctioning bodies that qualify for The Jack Daniels and American Royal Invitational contests.

All you have to do is sign-up for an Arkansas sanctioned contest. It's free to teams and organizers.Since this is totally corporate sponsored, we're always looking for sponsorship help, feel free to help us out!


Points are calculated and awarded to the teams that finish in the overall top 10 results of a contest.

The top 3 teams at the end of the year with the most compiled points will receive a personalized 'Diamond' and a payout.

For example, a Grand Champion of a contest with 50 teams will receive 49 points towards overall Diamond Cup standings, Reserve Grand Champion gets 48, 3rd place points minus 47, etc.
