For KCBS, FBA, GBA, etc. it's just 2 of us, either my wife and I or an old
buddy of mine and myself. 2 is plenty for these types of cookoffs. When
there's 3 of us, we just use the 3rd person as a runner.

HOWEVER, for MBN we're combining 2 KCBS teams and we're still only able
to compete effectively in 2 of the 3 main categories.
You dont see many MBN teams with less than 6 people, and then it's usually 4 or 5 ...
Hance - Lake Dogs Cooking Team - MiM/MBN/GBA CBJ and comp cook
Lake Sinclair, GA (strategically about an hour from darn near anywhere)
Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.
