The KCBS is about promoting BBQ. Big event, small event, Kids Q, classes, merchandise, big money, small money, and thousands of other methods. There is room for all of us in this sport.
We judge, compete, and organize. (Everyone should do all three, it promotes understanding)
We organize PoorQue for many of the reasons above. Our competition is NOT about the money, instead about the Sport. We have seen nothing but support from the KCBS on this event. Both Regional Competitors and Local Rookies made it last year and we expect the same this year. We wish there were dozens of PoorQue competitions out there so we could afford to compete more than a couple of times a year ourselves. http://poorque.web.officelive.com
We also enjoy the larger events and attend them. We enjoy our road trips to the Jack and Royal. BBQ is a family we love and support and want to promote for everyone!
