Get a turkey fryer or starter cubes for the chorcoal chimneys, it's alot cleaner. And the turkey fryer can be used to heat water for cleanup and hand washing.

Then go through Harbor Freight and get a weed burner ($19-$23). Much easier and way faster. Plus you won't have a bunch of ash floating around.

Also, regardless of what is on your list, you will fine tune the list over the first few events. You do have all of the main items on your list though....double the paper towels. Also, you can use quite a few latex gloves, it is nothing to go through a whole box in one event.

What type of trailer are you gonna get, enclosed or utility?

Enclosed 7x14, thought of just utility but wife wants enclosed LOL yea the paper towels and rubber gloves will be a few of each. i tried to think step by step everything we use here and tried to write it down. will put it in excel with sections for everything on the comps we can fill in for records also.

I would increase the ribs to 3 or 4 racks.

Also:

Duct tape (Ya never know)
Surge Suppressor (The extra plugs will come in handy)
Water (At least a coule of gallons0
A way to heat water (even an electric teapot will help)
Drinks (Soft and Adult)

I ran across this doc from the KCBS today. I thought it was a great read for any new competitor. It includes a pretty thorough checklist.

You will need a canopy. I don't think they will let you prep in full sun light. Our first year a Grill Kings the team next to us was disqualified by Murray Saltzman because they refused to do their prep under a canopy.

Your kidding me, I have never heard of this, But anything is possible. our first year we never had a canopy in 02. Since then we have but now we have a 31 foot BBQ war wagon with refrigeration, sinks and the works. oh and the big finish AIR conditioning.

Where is that in the rules???

I am gonna venture a guess here, and that is all it is--a guess!

They may have run afoul of local health department or the organizer's rules.
Many HD's require "cover" over any cooking areas simply to keep bird chit off the food, if nothing else.
And, this was in a major metro area if I understand the situation--lots of rules when you have lots of people.

Some other thoughts, but I will save them for now.

I agree with Kapn on this one, even if it's a guess.

I also agree with everyone else for what to bring with you. I think you will find that after this one you're gonna look at some of the stuff you brought and go, "why did I bring that?" I mean, I have only competed once so far, and I have already pared down some of the things on my list. I think we all tend to bring more than we need, but you don't want to have one of those "OH CHIT I FORGOT THE..." moments. :eek:

There is probably more but I can't think of anything everyone left out. I have a checklist and check off every item before I leave the house. It has saved me many trips to the store at the contest site.

Get a 5 gallon thermos cooler, the type for water....then heat up your water on the stove and pour it into the cooler. This will stay hot for the entire weekend. I learned this one from DeezQ. I used it last week at Irving. My wife has suggested adding soap to it next time and we might.

This is the one I got for $23:

Tim,

You are a good guesser. Also, at the 2006 Grill kings we were forced to have 4 sinks because of the the local board of health. The local board of health required us to have handwashing stations and it was enforced. The local Health inspector paid a visit to every site to make sure a handwashing station was available.

I was looking at this thread and I put together a smartlist for my palm pilot. Anyone out here use a treo or palm pilot that would be interested? I also created a modified one for festivals and estimating usage (and potential profit) by head count. If anyone's a geeky smartlist user, let me know and I'll send it their way.
