There's no electricity - you'll have to bring a generator. They have sites on grass and on pavement.

The pork before ribs is probably a typo, but turn-ins are an hour later than a normal contest. They have big parade and, in the old days, some teams had to cross the street that the parade route runs on. It wasn't unusual to see people running boxes across the street between fire trucks and parade floats. They have since moved the contestants to a different location but for some reason the 1pm starting turn-in time for chicken has stayed the same.

You guys think you can beat a 156? Thats my high score for the year ... well my only score for the year. But I must warn you; we were set up next to Big T's last week and saw exactly how they cooked their chicken.

Same bet Nate ... bottle of Crown to the winner. Everyone's welcome in.

Yes! just make sure you bring a bottle in the event the judges have it in for you and unfairly give you low scores. :)

This is our first competition on the KCBS circuit, only did one event last year with the St. Louis BBQ Society and had a blast so I am really looking forward to this comp., One more question (yeah, right) since this is my first comp. I sent my contest form and money order in about a week and a half ago, should i be looking for anything in the mail? When we get there how do they know it is us? or do I just pull up and tell them our team name and they assign us our spot? And do they do the meat inspection upon arrival or does someone come around to inspect our meat? ok so that was like 5 or 6 questions, thanks for the feedback and looking forward to meeting some of the brethren although I'm sure I will be a nervous wreck and have my head buried in double and triple checking everything and then checking it again

HarleyEarl
02-20-2011, 08:53 PM
Okay, I'll give this a shot:
1) I sent my contest form and money order in about a week and a half ago, should i be looking for anything in the mail? Not sure about snail mail ,but I believe I received something via e-mail last year.

2) When we get there how do they know it is us? or do I just pull up and tell them our team name and they assign us our spot? Pull up in front of Finnegan Hall, go in the North doors and you'll see a table - just tell them who you are and they will get you placed.

3) And do they do the meat inspection upon arrival or does someone come around to inspect our meat? Last year they came around, but it was right after I got the trailer parked - hadn't even unloaded much.

4) I'm sure I will be a nervous wreck and have my head buried in double and triple checking everything and then checking it again. Put together a time line and follow it. Do a couple practice cooks using the timeline and you'll do just fine. Also, be prepared for any type of weather.

See you there,

There were 108 teams last year. It was packed but had a lot of fun even though it rained almost all night. Stopped raining alittle for turn ins but started up again before awards. Hopefully they will have a room big enough for all the teams. I stood outside in the hall since it was my first contest and didn't expect any calls. So when they called me for 9th in brisket I had no idea where to go lol. Big time newb moment lol but since there was a check you bet your a$$ I found that.
Its a good competition to kinda see if what you changed over the winter will work.

I am in the same boat, I can't get a response about judging. I finally left a voicemail today too. Been trying for weeks now, possibly could have brought 4-5 certified judges if I could have done some planning. As a competitor it really makes me wonder about some of these comps that don't care about getting certified judges. There was an instance at another comp a couple years ago where I was asked to work the receiving table so some non-certified locals could judge.

I guess that I'm NOT JUDGING this contest. I sent e-mails on the 2nd, 8th and 27th of February and haven't gotten anything back, not a yes, no, maybe so - or a "kiss my arse we don't want you". In each of the e-mails I included my mailing address and cell phone number --- no response :mad2:.
To say the very least I think that this is a pi$$ poor way to run a contest. Most folks that I know need more that a week's notice that they are in --- every other contest that I've judged has their judge's list finished about a month in advance (except for cancellations, of course).
I plan to spend most of the contest with Sticks-n-Chicks and Smokers Purgatory but I'll be out visiting, also.

Susie and I will not be there either. This contest does not get very good reviews from judges. At Hallsville two judges at my table said they would never go back to NKC. Hope we run ino each other in the near future. keith

This is the 2nd year I have applied before January to judge NKC and neither year was accepted. Not making the cut is not a problem, but the lack of respect shown was the pisser. After several emails sent in late Feb I finally received an answer yesterday (Mar 6), If you havent heard by now you are not judging .I would rate NKC BBQs communication as some what less then the worst, worse then trying to getting an answer for a refund on a defective product.
I should not have overlooked the communication problems I experienced last year or the words of several judges this past year. The reputation has spread though out the MO-KS BBQ community and as with chickens this will in time come to roost
