I wish they would have lowered the entry fee instead. I really wanted to do this contest but $300 is pretty steep. If I can beg, borrow or steal a weber kettle I think I will do the grilling contest.

Hey Chris...

Don't quote me as I'm not sure how valid or current the info is, but I recall someone saying that it may be +/- 50 teams ???

Anyone else know of an accurate team count so far ?

Willie B - Thanks for confirming the team count to date .... I have no idea where I got that 50 from but I could have sworn I thought it was deeper..... Maybe I overheard someone saying 50 was the expected count by contest date... Who knows...

Lazy Dawg - be prepared !!!! There's lot's of old threads in the comp forum if you do some searches on what you'll need... Aside from food and bbq pit, you'll need everything from a canopy, fire extinguisher, tables, coolers, wash bins, cleaning stuff, utensils, etc.

Say you were a contest that is 200 miles away and a contest next to you raised their prize money from 1000.00 to 5000.00. Is their competition growing now because there are more contests to choose from? I'd drive past one 200 miles for the chance of 4000.00 more to win. Just a thought!

I think there are two many factors involved such as # of teams entering, level of experience, previous feedback on how well the contest was organized and run etc.
