I spoke with Jim, he still has opening for competitive teams. This is a new event but we are looking forward to supporting it!

(It looks to be a very cooker friendly set up)

I never understand the 'do not bring outside beverages' thing instructed to teams competing. You've paid to be there. You've bought hundreds of dollars in meat. And you also want teams to buy your for beer?

I am helping the event organizer so I will not be cooking.

Ripple Que/Rebel Smokers is a Brethren and will be out there.
