Default Favorite team meals at comps

Prepping for a contest this weekend and wanted to get some ideas for team meals during the event. Normally we end up doing something simple like sausage and peppers or do a rack of ribs to get in a last minute practice cook but figured the creative people on this board would have some good suggestions.

Sometimes my wife whips up some baked ziti or lasagna in some half pans at home and then I throw them on the cooker

IMO the best are potlucks where a bunch of teams get together and bring a dish. Some of the best food I have ever eaten are from potlucks!

Spaghetti is a favorite with us. Really, anything but BBQ is a favorite.

Always a team favorite BBQ Bologna, one chub rolled in honey dusted with black pepper crosshacted and smoked for three hrs. Slice and serve on a burgers roll easy dinner & breakfast the next day.

If there are vendors on site I buy food. If I can get the truck out then local restaurant. Anything I don't have to cook. Sled's idea of premade and reheat is second choice. I hate having to cook Friday night. If staying Saturday night delivery pizza. Ordering can sometimes be a challenge but worth it. Down her in fl we're lucky that Janet from big poppas country kitchen usually makes breakfast so all I need is coffee and a donut or 2. Lunch is an over rated meal especially Saturday.

Now I know lots of teams that will throw on a rib rost, beef tenderloin, ny strip roast Or pork loin with some tarts and bread. Need a big team or your feeding a bunch of friends. Rarely any beef left.

We usually have a pan of mixed sausages in a beer bath w/ onions in the cooker at all times. We just let it go all day and night and add beer when needed.

We do alot of sausages or steaks too (chips and dip). We also nibble on what didn't make it into the Anything Butt box...this past weekend it was bacon wrapped scallops. They didn't finish well, but they sure were good to us!

We've cooked burgers, boiled up some dogs with skyline chili and mounds of cheese and adobo chicken Friday evenings. We're also big fans of whatever the local pizza or sub joint is. This weekend I walked three miles uphill both ways to the Red Pepperoni in Madison for pizza.

Tacos, I pre-cook the meat and heat it in a covered half pan on the smoker. Homemade salsa, buy the lettuce, shells, cheese, etc.

Chili dogs, pre-cook chili, heat it in a pot, throw the dogs in. You can have a hot dog, chili dog or a bowl of chili or all three.

Souper Supper is one of my favorite potlucks. Everybody brings a crockpot full of soup (some bring breads, crackers, cheeses, etc.) and you get to taste different soups, exchange recipes, etc.

Burger Bar. Hamburgers and have numerous toppings: bacon (you can pre-cook at home and heat up in the smoker), lettuce, tomato, onion, sauteed mushrooms, various cheeses.
