It's definitely a long shot for us folks in Dixie, Rub. You'd need a second job to pay for travel to most of those events!

Seems like a KC area thing.

Gowan, I managed to work in a cookoff with a family vacation to TN last year, which is where I qualified.

My next family vacation is going to include a disney trip and a couple of contests down your way...

But the chest to chest is not in the KC area...
the Butt to Butt is in Shannon, IL

I'd love an invite to an invitational down your way... no one is putting one on.... yet ( at least that I have been invited to)

Of course there is the Polar Swine Invitational :twisted: I'm sure you could get an invite to that!!!:rolleyes:

The Best of the Best in Douglas GA is an excellent Invitational contest.
LMK when you're coming to the southeast and I'll help hook you guys up with an FBA event or two.

Now if I could just get an invite to that... I didnt see anything on the website that talked about what it takes to get in

Actually Rub - I will definately let you know... I am thinking there are a couple back to back events in Jan.... so I may try to pull that trip off, if Im lucky :twisted:

You can qualify for The Best of the Best by coming in the top 5 (usually they end up going 10 or so down) in any of the major sanctioning bodies. I'm sure there are other ways in, you'd have to ask the organizer Kell Phelps (kell at barbecuenews dot com). If the Invitational doesn't work out there is always the Open. It's a great weekend of contests with real nice payouts.

Yep, there's several contests in central FL in January. I'll be happy to help you coordinate stuff or store a trailer, loan stuff, or whatever. LMK.

There's Douglas, and Dillard is an invitational. Then there's this little thing we have called "The Jack" in Tennessee... :mrgreen:

If any contests organizers would like to see about becoming a qualifier for the Chest to Chest Invitational contact Kent Romine kromine@opiwireless.com or 620-793-2985, I am sure he would love to add more contests from other regions. It is not just a KC area qualifing, there are contests from Texas, Iowa, Tennessee, Pennyslvania, and Alabama in addition to the states closer to Kansas.

Kent is expecting 20+ teams for the Chest to Chest, the more the merrier! And if you didn't qualify at other contests there are several chances to qualify in the Central Kansas Barbecue contest right after the Chest to Chest so come on in and join the fun.

I know Ranchers Reserve is sponsoring a Brisket Challenge at the Oregon State Fair Competition in August, that could be a qualifier (if ya know what I mean)

I haven't seen the qualifier list for this year, but I think both of those will count towards this year.

Edit: I think you had it right! I need to do work, or BBQ, but not both today! Information overload!

I think I got confused this morning. It's in Great Bend KS right? What's the date? I can't find it on KCBS site - at least July. Did it get moved to Sept?

It moved to the first weekend in September this year. C2C is invitational and won't show up.

Edit: yes it's in Great Bend.

I saw his list of qualifiers and it is lacking I think. He does not have Pleasant Hill's brisket winner on there, even though he told me in January it would qualify from last year for the 2010 event and this year for the 2011 event. If you contact him, he will look at the event and possibly add an invite. I'd guess any contest should qualify... last year, he had around 50 qualifiers but only 17 showed up.

Bottom line for Kent seems to be wanting a LOT of teams at his event. I don't know how he picks qualifiers, but seems pretty liberal and fluid. A call to ask can't hurt. We made a case last year for winning brisket at Laurie, MO in 2008 out of 81 teams. He had another MO contest cancel and put our Laurie, MO brisket in its place. The more teams involved, the more impressive the win. World Brisket Open had 120 briskets this year. Anywhere in the top 20 is a pretty good run.
