Are you looking for things that are under the control of the organizer or reps? I have seen horrendous weather but can't complain about mother nature.

I would like to stop all weather above 75 and below 50, no rain, no wind, and no loud party people.

Worst thing about contests by far for me is people who like loud music and have no respect for the eardrums of others.

Best thing is being around other folks that love this stuff as much as I do.

I love almost everything...planning, purchasing, scheduling, setting up, prepping, cooking, the adrenalin before turn ins, the friendly ribbing from your new BBQ friends. What I don't like...pack out and the usual long drive home!

Yeah, I think you need to be more specific in your question. You've posed too broad an inquiry - what exactly are you getting at? Organizer critique, team behavior, judging, public, ???

Best ever was a contest where we got to set up under a large pavilion on concrete! Worst was a contest where the turn in times changed mid cook.

Worst thing? This last weekend a team near us decided 2am was a great time to start telling stories in their loudest voices. Honestly most of our experiences have been pretty good.

A couple of mine:

Waiting until 4:00 for awards when the final turn-in was at 1:00 and it is about 95 deg. and there is no shade and we had to wait for a really crappy band to finish.

Having to wait about an hour and a half to get my truck in to hook up the trailer because the 'road' is a sidewalk and no driving on the grass.

Oh another bad one is when its past time for awards and the band(usually terrible) won't wrap it up.

And why is it that the worse a band sounds, the louder they play?

I would like ass holes to stop messing with our gurus and stokers just because they are jealous and we are sleeping in a hotel. They got me so good today my pork was raw at 7am and got a 180!

It was a turn in time change for backyard shortly after the thing started. We all adjusted ok, but it was still annoying.
