This contest is back for 2013. Last year was the first time and it was unreal. Having jets come over your cook site at 700 MPH while getting your turn-in boxes ready is crazy. There is no other BBQ contest like this one.

Get your apps sent in now, this contest will fill up. You don't want to miss it.

Just a bump...I would advise you to get signed up for this if you haven't. They are capping it at 48 teams and I believe the purse is $15,000.

The sequestration restrictions on military air show equipment and personnel have been lifted, so there may indeed be some military jet teams there after all. There could also be a sky-writing team there.

Great contest.
