The BBQ Committee had a nice meeting last night and things are coming together nicely! We are all super excited and pumped-up about this wonderful opportunity. I think everyone involved will have a great time and, God willing, the weather will be sunshine and more sunshine. We also want to throw out a huge "THANK YOU" to all the teams already committed and all the judges and volunteers who make this come together. This is YOUR contest - we are simply a medium to make it happen. Please do not forget about the Sauce Contest ($10.00/entered sauce - no limit). Winner will take 1/2 of the entry fees collected. We would also like the opportunity to purchase your sauces for our Annual Masonic Families picnic. LET'S GET EXCITED!!!!!!!!

A good problem to have....teams on a waiting list in case anyone drops out of the competition!!! We are truly blessed and want to thank all our teams and you BBQ Brethren that made this event happen. Without your support and encouragement we would really be struggling right now. We do want to remind all the teams and potential visitors that we will have concessions available during the day Saturday as well as a charity-donation breakfast Saturday morning starting at 8:00 a.m..

Wow! All spots are full for teams! That is awsome!
If there are any Judges that didnt sign up that would still like to I could use another 6-10 to ensure we have plenty on hand. We are 100% Certified CBJ at this point which is awsome! If you are a CBJ and you still want to sign up drop me an email SWILLI298@kc.rr.com Name, number, and CBJ# and I'll add you to the list...Phil and Rosemary Marrow are our KCBS reps and phil assures me that we will fully utilize all CBJ's present even if that means adding an extra table to do so!
Thanks!

BBQ Brothern,
Well, its official we have our sanctioning letter for 2014!!!
4/12/14
Website has been updated by our Organizing Chair Troy Whitton:

http://www.thebestdambbqcontest.com/

Judges: We (Troy) have added a new registration page for you all this year! Hopefully, you'll find it easy to use and register. I think Troy has done an outstanding job of setting it up. I know it will make my job allot easier as it automatically updates my Judges data base and I can one click add your names to our live list on the website! (a personal favorite of mine) Some have already noticed the website is updated and started signing up THAT AWESOME!

Team: Again this year you can register online and pay with paypal or if you prefer snail mail you can do that too! Hope many of you return!

We had some awesome teams this year! The teams made it really tough on our Judges with so many great entries!We hope to duplicate the experience for everyone in our "2nd Annual Contest in 2014"
