Default What happens after the competition,

Let's say you're going to do a whole hog, once the compition is over what do you do with all the meat?

The reason I'm asking is the Wife and I were watching BBQ Pitmasters and she said, "I wonder what they do with all the leftovers?" I said they prolly eat it but after thinking about it, that's allot of leftovers...

Thanks.

BotBB has always gathered extra food and accepted donations for Island Harvest (i think that's the name, ain't it?) and Hudson Valley Ribfest collects extras for a local food kitchen. i think it's important to make sure good food is not going to waste and i think it is also important for us all to realise how lucky we are to live in a place where so much of an excess of food exists that we can have fun cooking it.

When cooking larger quantities of meat (like in MBN for example) we'll have friends and family come in afterwards and graze and help pull the remainder of the meats. We'll bag it up and take some home ourselves but most of it is given away. For KCBS there's not nearly the amount of leftovers. Usually we'll just pull it, bag it, and divy up the freezer bags...

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.

We divy up the food in vacuum sealed bags and I sell the leftovers at work on Monday. Helps offset some of the contest costs.

Here's a thought. How do you think teams would respond if they were asked to cook an extra brisket or two to be taken to the local shelters? I think I could get a local store to donate the meat.

I dont think too many teams would mind. Some may have extra-capacity issues. You may find it easier and goes farther by having them donate & cook pork butts...

I could give them a choice of pork or beef; that way they could decide for themselves when looking at capacity.

As Phil said, the Hudson Valley Ribfest asks teams to donate "extra" meats at the end of the KCBS comp. We have a rep from the nearby Queens Galley that serves thousands of meals per month to needy families. The Director says that last year they served three meals from our teams' generosity...and the word got out quickly that there was 'que on the menu! Lots of happy people. Stephanie, for Ribfest

Jeff has listed the method I use. It shows that we wish they were there and appreciate their help. They also can be very honest critics. That will help you if you're trying new things. THANKS to the sponsors out there, not only mine, but to all. When the volume is high, the local shelters is where we call. Steve.
