Default World Food Championship vs USA BBQ Championship

So the World Food Championships (Las Vegas) have posted their dates as Oct 31-Nov 3. Those are essentially the same dates (Oct 31-Nov 2) as Smoke on the Water's USA BBQ Championship at the Riverside Casino (Laughlin).

Doesn't this seem like an unnecessary conflict, especially considering the overlap in potential competitors? Which one would you go to?

Actually, the WFC occurred last year on basically the same dates as this year and they also announced that they would be back this year. Maybe Ron should have looked at what was going on prior to his decision. He'll get competitors but maybe not the caliber that he expected.

Actually which sounds better: Dear, lets go to Las Vegas for our vacation or Dear, Lets go to Laughlin for our vacation?

with a $100,000 purse in laughlin, i don't think the quality of competitors will be an issue.

With free entry and hotel I would bet all of the TOY leaders will be in Laughlin.

Where is this posted?? Looked at the KCBS website and nothing of interest is there. Do we take Ronnies word that he has the big bucks? Hopefully he will have a NV business license by then!

Actually, I was looking at doing this one because of the money. Just doing a bit of looking and really did not find anything on verifiable web sites. So do the judges, cooks and guarantees come from facebook? Did facebook do the one cancelled at the end of the month as well? Man, anything can be said on facebook but! I need a bit more than this to invest money and time.

Thom I am at business dinner.


Can somebody reply that Ronnie's word is Golden.
We have produced two $100,000 events one $125,00 events and multiple $50,000 events. We had one bad experience and have never canceled an event before. In fact, at Michigan during a NASCAR event I went in knowing I was going to lose $50,000 but against everybody's advice I did not cancel. We have not sanctioned the event because I'm producing several. $350 for each adds up. We pick and choose when it's time to spend that money.

Thanks for your interest

Ron Cates

We are going to Laughlin as well! We cooked the WFC last year...not our idea of what a bbq competition is all about.
