I think that the PNWBA has done a pretty good job of taking a proactive stance in trying to educate teams in dealing with HD inspections. Even though each county is different, we usually get good reports from the inspectors when they've gone through and done their job.
I realize its probably too big of a deal for KCBS to tackle, and not in the business to, but regional BBQ Associations might be able to do a better job to hip organizers and teams to HD regulations?
Here is a registration from a recent PNWBA event that had BBQ, Dutch Oven and Chili sampling.
