Phil,

Take a look here:
http://kcbs.us/downloads/sanctioning.pdf

Althought KCBS centric--I would imagine that the general guidance would work for any event.
Place to get started.

Looks like a "whole lotta" work to me

Phil,

Are you thinking about putting one on here in Suffolk? If you are, I would be willing to help a bit. There are alot of great locations here in Suffolk.

Fellow here in St Louis wants to bring KCBS Competition BBQ to St L - Last Summer I helped him put on a non-sanctioned contest at his Church - we modeled it on a sanctioned contest - we had 5 teams and everyone had a great time. I had contacted the KCBS and they were extremely helpful.

This Summer they will have a KCBS Sanctioned contest on July 14 '06 - preceeded by a CBJ class on 1/28/06.

you CAN do it

I was thinking about putting one together in Brooklyn, but due to the distance rules between contests, it's too close to Grill Kings to qualify as a KCBS sanctioned event.

Not just same weekend - had some time restrictions too. The organization I was working with is set on it's dates so it would have not been accepted for sanction.

Even if it's not sanctioned it could still be fun and good publicity for the sport of BBQing. I think BBQing as a sport and just for the fun of it is exploding up here in the North East.

Start planning early!!! Keep in mind that you will need a good deal of " Front Money " ( for trophys, advertising, turn in boxes ect. ) because some teams won't pay the entry fee untill day of even though they have given a verbal commitment. If you can get local sponcership, they can help with some of this.

Phil,

I don't know what you are thinking of but I think what Patchogue does during the summer on Friday evenings is very cool. I think shutting down Main Street and turning it into a street fair with bands and such is good for the community and the business community. Maybe this could be tied in to BBQ contest.

This type of event is good for everyone. It brings people into town where they will spend money at the local merchants and it is a good time for families also. It's win-win.
