Default How much do you spend?

Hey guys. Been a while since I've been on. Thinking seriously about entering a contest or two and was hoping I could ask a few questions. Mainly, how much does a contest usually run you out of pocket? I may just want to enter one doing just butts or just butts and ribs. Do you sell the meat after the contest? I heard Myron say once that he doesn't eat it. What do you guys do? Mainly just wondering what I'm in for and how much it may cost me.

Our recent review in planning for 2012 KCBS events has our spending right around $700. This includes entry, meats, sauces, rubs, etc., and consumables such as charcoal, smoke wood, aluminum foil, pans, gloves and paper towels.

It does not include travel costs, personal food, beverages or any ancillary entries.

This sport is not for the weak of heart!


As for leftovers, vacuum pack them and sell them at work, take them home to the kids (until they complain of too much barbecue!), or give it away to friends, family or the local food bank.

Good luck jumping in the pool!

I plan on a $1,000 bill when I hook up the trailer. Some are more and some are less but the average is that. I either give the meat away to friends (my kids want eat it anymore) or, depending on where I traveled to for the contest, throw it away. HD rules and today litiguous society precluded me, due to my business license and insurance, from doing otherwise.

Too Much....

Over $500 under $1000 for KCBS. Less for IBCA / Texas Gulf Coast due to lower entry fees and shorter travel distance.

I did an excel spreadsheet on the events we are planning on competing in with all of the expenses itemized out. The average cost is between $750-$850. With gas prises on the rise this number will go up thou.
