I know a few teams that have not been accepted. The top 10 of each Pork Category and the winners of each ancillary are auto-accepted, as is the winner of Ms. Piggie Idol.
Patio has alot of the same teams year after year, but there is a lottery for available spots. If you win you have to move up to the main contest. And the person listed as the head cook can not have cooked in contests before. So 40 Patio Teams total every year.
Patio can enter all ancillaries
