As a general question, does your part of the country have Kids Q in association with your regular contest?

Very rarely, Todd. We see it much more often when we compete in Colorado and only occasionally in Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Nevada or California. I think, however, as the sport grows that Kids Q will become a more frequent category out here.

We don't have it out here...then again, as the red-headed stepchild....Hawaii has a really long way to go.

They are becoming very popular around here in Louisiana - they have them all the time in TX - we have a lot of kids' jambalaya cooks as well. One high school had their cooking class come in and judge the kids' que - lots of fun!

This year the RMBBQA even has a three contest series for the kids. Pretty cool.

There are a few here and they for us in KY. Now that my son is turning 7 and my daughter 5 I have been looking into kids Q more lately.

We have one this weekend at Bakersfield's Biggest Baddest BBQ, if I recall correctly this is the first time having the kids event with the comp. I'm looking forward to seeing the next generation fire it up.

We will be having our 2nd Kids Q in a couple of weeks with our contest.
It is really great to get families involved. The kids are happy to participate.
There was also a crowd of spectators last year. Expect that again.
The quality of entries we got was high. I got to help judge Kids Q at the Royal last year and what a treat that was! Yum.

Also we get donations from the states beef council of meat thermometers for everyone and our fire department gives a fire safety talk.

The Kids Q is part of our Awards ceremony as well. The Kids all get an opportunity to "walk and hear their names" at the same ceremony as the big guys.

It is a plus to any contest and worth the effort to put on.

I volunteer to work the "Kids Q" at the American Royal every year. It is not very competitive and a lot of fun.

Kids Q is as rare as hen's teeth in Georgia.

I'd like to get it going at some of the events I do, but frankly I want to see it first before I take that leap. Going to Kansas to observe such an event really isn't an option.

My kids cook them when ever there is one. Herman Mo contest is a nice kids q.There is one this weekend at Monroe city and there use to be one at Boone county. My kids have cooked the one at the Royal the last 2 years too. Its nice when a contest has one.

I've cooked close to 20 contests now and have seen it twice. My daughter cooked in one of them and had a lot of fun.

CutieQues are in 2 comps this year:
- Roc City
- Mainely Grillin' and Chillin'

It thinks it's pretty popular around here.
If we picked up a couple more comps, we'd have a coupla more KidsQ.
And it is fun.
Kids really throw down.

We're doing the Champions of Tomorrow Kid's Que at Smokin' Up A Storm in July. Three age groups, 6-10, 11-14, 15-17, each group has their own meat and their own judges. Top 3 in each age group gets a trophy, all other entrants get a plaque. The will be other prizes as well.

We have been running Kids Q in the UK alongside our low and Slow comps for the last couple of years, its great to see the enthusiasm and more often than not they serve up better food than the adults!
