This KCBS Official State Championship event is already up to 35 teams with a lot more room for additional teams. Prize fund is up to 20K and it looks like there are some pretty sweet sponsors as well, including Basha's, Viking, Toby Keith's Bar and Grill, Four Peaks Brewery and Jack Daniels. Additionally, Lynne Tolley, the Grand Niece of Jack Daniels will be hanging out in the JD Whiskey Tent visiting with teams and the public.

There will also be cooking demos & classes, a Kid's Zone, a ton of vendors and a huge VIP party & dinner on Friday night. Tours will be given of the competitor area for VIP's to meet the teams and live music on Friday and Saturday will definitely draw in a large crowd. Oh yeah, it also looks like there will be a Daisy Duke Beauty Pageant on Saturday as well. :-D

There will also be a Backyard competition for all of the new teams that want to get involved with this event. Additionally, there will be a Kid's Que for any kids that want to cook this competition.

Electric, water, ice and grey water/ash disposal are all included. Standard site size is 30'x30', 30'x50' is available at no additional cost if you need it.

There's also going to be a lot of local media, as well as national media, in attendance. There's a good chance that your team will get some solid "face-time" with this much media at this event.

This sounds like the premier event for AZ this year. Who's going to make it to this one?

VRM Pit Crew will be there!!!

McFrankenboo BBQ is on this one! This will be right at the end of the whirlwind next 6 weeks for us, but what a way to cap it off!! I mean really, a Jack Daniels tent with the on of his relatives? How cool is that! We're definitely looking forward to this one especially with the weather this time of year! If you're on the fence about this one, I would highly recommend it!

A wise man once said: "It's easier to get forgivness than permission". That being said, we hope to see you in Scottsdale.

Oh yeah, the crowd is supposed to be huge, so plan on getting there early if you want to sample the competitors food. I cant imagine that most teams will have samples available past 3pm.

Tim - I think he did enter the competition. If you look on the teams list there is a team called "Some dumb pork related pun" which is a phrase he used in one of his less than stellar blogs. We will see if he is cooking or if he went out and got a ringer?!?

I know I said this at AZBarbeque, but can we PLEASE place him next door/behind your spot?

Also, serious question, but what kind of ringer do you think it would it be? An actual out of town comp cook? point being, a local chef may be a great cook, but still not be prepared for competion style cooking.

It would be great to put him between me and Major Woody's!!

This guy has some pressure on him. Especially calling out the local BBQ teams saying he can cook better than the stuff he tasted in Chandler. I'm pretty sure he is scouring the web looking for info, tips, tricks, and probably even some one to come help him out. I guess we will see next weekend in Scottsdale.
