After our last two competitions I've asked myself that every day.

That's funny.... actually, I ask the same question every contest, going there and coming home.... usually the same answer for me.

Because my wife and I enjoy it. Started 2007 cooking one contest. Did two a year about every year till last year when we cooked 5 after buying a toy hauler.

Met some nice people along the way. Done some urban camping in some neat small towns. We have fun is the bottom line.

For all the money of course .

The short explanation is I like cooking bbq, being competitive, all tied with the fun/camaraderie that bbq competitions provide.

I've always enjoyed the thrill of competition. To me, it's just plain fun. In this case, you get to eat your entries... I will say, I dont suffer fools well. While I compete for the enjoyment of the competition, I want to compete. Rules broken or exceptions made to them will drive me bonkers. I will only compete in sanctioned comps with 100% CBJ's. That give me a little more assurance that willy-nilly doesn't happen. However, we're all human, and given a chance to F something up, we (as a group of humans) will do it every time...

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.

I compete because it's the only sport my body will allow me to participate in where it doesn't revolt the next day.
