Celebrity/Humanitarian Category

Ardie, aka Remus Powers, Ph.B., is founder of the American Royal Barbecue Sauce Contest which is in its 29th year and the largest sauce contest in the world. He is a charter member of the KCBS, instrumental in the development of the Certified Barbecue Judge curriculum, and author of the oath that each judge still recites before judging a contest. All in the name of BBQ, Ardie is the author of numerous books, writes freelance for the Kansas City Star & the BullSheet, and has been interviewed twice by the History Channel due to his knowledge of barbecue. Ardie’s involvement in the BBQ community has earned him 9 separate nominations for this year’s Barbecue Hall of Fame, more than twice as many as any other candidate.
