View Full Version : Babyboomerboy up to his neck in it

Hello from small town Kansas. I've been appointed to put together a BBQ comp. Let me first say that I have never been to a real BBQ cookoff and therefore am completely in the dark. However, over the past week I have been reading several threads on this site and am beginning to see why you all are so passionate about this hobby. I have been reading the threads in Comp BBQ, and the ones that ask for input to their presentation boxes are a real eye opener. I would judge them all a 10, but after reading what you post, the things that pull the grade down, I am beginning to see the real art in these contest. We have pick out a date in July to hold this contest, if KCBS will sanction it, and we are planning to hold a judging class in April to generate some interest in this area for certified judges for the cookoff. As for me, I am a 60 year old retiree that has more time on his hands than money. Thus you now know why I was elected to put this cookoff together. I have been doing woodworking project for my whole life and I have been brewing beer as a hobby for about 30 years or so. I enjoy cooking for small groups and for pleasure I love a good homebrew and a fine BBQed steak in the evening with friends. I hope I can get some input from you pro's on the do's and don'ts of a KCBS cookoff. I feel that this is a very big undertaking and I really want it to come off good. I know that the first year is a learning process and it will need to be tweeked as we go along. From what I have gotten from KCBS I think they will be a great help for us to have a successful contest, but any help you all have would really be appreciated. Thank you

Iam about 100 miles east of Wichita, 100 miles south of Topeka, and about 110 south of Kansas City. Also I am about 100 miles north of Tulsa, OK. and 100 miles east of Joplin, MO. We're down here in the southeast corner of Kansas at the cross roads of highway 75 and highway 54. It's a great little town called Yates Center and I hope you come to our first annual Hay Capital BBQ cook-off and Bike show. The bike show is being put on by our American Legion Riders post 13. We are all very excited about this venture and hope we can have a good turn out to start us off and get things going.
