Could you explain the deal with the wild card?

Wildcard - top 2 scores from the 4 first round comps that didn't finish in the top 7. It is possible that the 2 wildcards come from the same first round competition.

Think of it kinda like NFL playoffs.

The UDS and the Ranch Kettle. Not enough cooks on the new Spicewine. No experiments at a contest, especially a big one. Going with what I know.

Unless there is something we've all missed in the rules, the two Wild Cards are, indeed, Little Miss BBQ and Bigmista's Barbecue, both coming from the Gilbert Local.

Little Miss BBQ had a score of 638.2856 and Bigmista's Barbecue was just .0002 behind that at 638.2854.

The number 8 team at Loveland had a score of 636+, the winner in Sacramento had a score of 632+ and the pass down team on the bubble at Santa Fe has a score of 627+. That leaves the top 2 teams with the highest point totals who have not earned one of the seven qualifying slots at a Local event as Little Miss BBQ and Bigmista's Barbecue.

Looks like there will be 9 team in the Las Vegas Regional that cooked in the Gilbert Local.

Congrats on making it to the next round!

Congrats on making it to the next round!Thank YOU for the reply. SO does that mean the other low scoring guys get knocked out? Does every region have (2) wild card spots? Are their wild card after the next round of regionals?

Top 10 from each of the 5 regionals I believe.

I know that part of it. What im asking is their a wild card for those 5 events as well?

I love the idea of this series, i have never been so excited to cook an event like this one. I do hate the fact that mine all the way in sept cause i gotta wait till then and then its a marathon if i get the next 2 rounds cause it will all be in a one month span. Hopefully they spread it out differently next year for my region.

not that I know of, its just for the 3 regionals mentioned in the rules;


A. Fifty teams from the five (5) Regional contests will be invited to compete at the National contest.

B. Every Region will not have the same number of contests. For that reason, the following number of teams from each Region will go to the National contest.

Region 1: Las Vegas, NV – 10 teams
Region 2: Fort Worth, TX – 10 teams
Region 3: Jackson, TN – 11 teams
Region 4: Indianapolis, IN – 10 teams
Region 5: Medford, NY – 9 teams

C. Teams qualifying for the National will be determined by the top overall scores, in order, from each Region. For example, in Region 5 (Medford, NY), the top 9 finishers will advance to the National competition. If, however, one of those top 9 finishers has already qualified for the National competition in a previous Regional, then the next top finisher (the 10th as it pertains to Region 5) will win entry into National, and so on and so forth in each Region.

D. Qualifying into a Regional will occur in a similar fashion. The top finishers at the Locals will move on to the Regional to comprise 30 teams at each Regional:

Region 1, 2, and 4: The top seven (7) overall finishers at each of the four (4) Local contests will automatically advance. This will create a field of 28 teams. For the last 2 teams, the two top overall scores (excluding the 28 automatically advanced teams) from any of the Local contests in that region will advance. In the event of a tie for the 29th and 30th positions, the KCBS Tie-Breaker Rule will be applied. Click here for the rule.

Region 3: The top 6 overall finishers at each of the five (5) Local contests will advance.

Region 5: The top 10 overall finishers at each of the three (3) Local contests will advance.

Late again I see. Thanks for the detailed post.

To qualify for the regional in region 1,2,4 it's the top 7 plus the 2 wild cards discussed on this thread. For Region 3 it's the top 6 in each of 5 contests and for region 5 it's the top 10 in 3 contests. Obviously the east coast teams have a big advanteage in getting to the regionals but less teams get to compete locally.

For the championship it's the top 10 in each regional. 10 spots in Bentonville will be filled next weekend.

What Muzzlebrake posted in Post #19 is straight from the series rules as listed at KCBS. There are only going to be Wild Card teams from the Regions that have four local contests, those being Regions 1, 2 & 4.

There are going to be 7 teams from each of the four Local contests, even if they have to go very deep into the field. As it stands right now, all 7 slots from the Gilbert, AZ Local have been filled and paid for. One team in that Local dropped out and was replaced by the 8th Place Overall finisher from that contest. There are only 6 paid/confirmed teams from both Sacramento, CA and Santa Fe, NM.

Three teams from the top 7 in Sacramento have dropped and two of those three slots have been filled, one by the 8th Place Overall finisher and the other by the 13th Place finisher. There is still one slot from the Sacramento Local left for a team to accept.

As for Santa Fe, one team from the top 7 there has definitely dropped and has been filled by the 10th Place Overall finisher. (Two teams that qualified in Gilbert also cooked in Santa Fe so the 9th Place Overall team was actually the 7th team to qualify and the 10th Place Overall team was the original bubble team.) Apparently there is a strong possibility that another of the top 7 may drop so the 11th Place Overall team is now on the bubble.

I think all the teams that have qualified will have until Tuesday morning to pay for their slots in Las Vegas and if they don't, those empty slots will be offered to the next teams in line from each respective Local.

As for those Wild Card teams, they could have come from any of the four Locals based solely on the criteria of highest score that didn't get one of the slots from their respective Local event. It is just coincidental that those two teams are both from the same Local, that being Gilbert, AZ.
