Already committed to cook offs in October and November - could probably afford to fly out but would wind up sleeping in the cookoff tent!
As everyone should already understand you need a lot more than just a cooker -- tents, tables, cooler, ice, drinks, seasonings, charcoal, wood, water, a place to sleep, entry fees, meat, garnish, food for a couple of days, etc. etc. etc.
My rough estimate for a local cook off is $400.
A national "fly in" team would be great but you better have someone local who at least knows where the grocery store is.
