Pick something you have confidence in. With this kind of event I'm thinking the "WOW" factor comes into play. A really nice pork loin with the "surprise" factor and great moist flavor would probably work.
How much time do you have? That will certainly come into play.
I like Chads "wow" factor idea. Living in the heart of BBQ country (or one of the top 3, not to start a TX,TN, KC war) you can get the four "standards" pretty much anywhere, and people will already be biased (some judges prefer wet versus dry).
But a stuffed loin, no preconceived notion on how it should be cooked or how it tastes.
And as far as flavor, you can get one heck of a good smoke ring and flavor in there, and the bullseye presentation it a nice touch.
But also agree with Greg and Chad, go with you specialty, unless its Spam.
