I think Kevin nailed it right on the head... Competition BBQ is growing everywhere but has deeper roots in certain areas of the country. This creates the opportunity for more teams to attend more and larger contests based on the exposure in the region. This creates somewhat of a higher probability of these teams standing out from a ranking system...

Obviously there are exceptions to every rule as there are very strong teams in the NE, Mid Atlantic, SE and Pacific Northwest as examples but in the end a lot has to do with percentages.

I gotta stand up for my New England teams. When we do travel out west and south we do pretty darn good against those teams. Plenty of calls at the Royal, the Jack and the Best of the Best for New England Teams.

So I guess there are alot of good teams everywhere. And if all the top teams got togeather there probably would be several different calls.

Oh..I can't disagree with you....I think the question asked really becomes an answer of a regional response. I know you guys can cook, I've just never been in a contest against you. Same with Willie T out in the Carolinas...the brother can cook, no doubt.

I guess everyone has their teams they have to contend with in their own region....so there probably isn't a state or states that has the best teams.
They're all pretty good on any given day!

Default A true national BBQ championship?

It would be great to find a way to bring the top teams from all regions and societies/associations together in true national championship format - A BBQ Superbowl or World Series type of event.

Seems like it could draw some big time sponsors and TV Coverage and be a well paid trip for all the regional champions with some significant prize money and bragging rights.

It's been trying to exist, it's called the Best of the Best, put on by the National BBQ News in Douglas, Georgia... The same problems with distance plague this contest, besides the fact they keep charging an entry fee for the Invitational... But it's a neat contest, they take rules from several organizations, and meld them together.....

This may be too simplistic a question considering that KCBS competitions are held throughout the United States.
OK here is the deal, in Texas we have a few sanctioning bodies. IBCA, Lone Star and Gulf Coast. In the past there have been KCBS comps here as well. There was even a joint competition called "meeting in the middle" I believe. I think it was in Stillwater OK last year. All pits turned in to both IBCA and KCBS, so there were two sets of turn-ins.

All told there are approximately 200 sanctioned comps a year in Texas... I believe that number is accurate. IBCA has a great website whereas the Lone Star is about as cheesy as they come. I am basing that on my experience and nobody elses. I have never checked out the gulf coast website because they are gulf coast and not too close to home. The rules for each sanctioning body are roughly the same. Both Gulf Coast and Lone Star are shoot-offs from IBCA. Many folks will cook in all three associations and some folks prefer to stick with just one. IBCA is also nationwide, they sanction cook-offs as far away as both coasts.

The main but not only differences between IBCA and KCBS: KCBS has a training program for their judges where IBCA utilizes judges from the sponsoring organization such as VFW, K of C, volunteer Fire Dept, Chamber of Commerce...etc etc... There are pluses and minuses to both. Another difference is the meat selection and garnish. KCBS uses baby backs where IBCA uses spares. IBCA turns in fully jointed half chickens, KCBS 6 pieces of the same. KCBS turns in pulled pork and IBCA doesn't...unless they have added categories. KCBS garnishes, IBCA doesn't (I personally think it is silly to garnish, afterall it is a meat competition)

I am going to participate in a KCBS cook-off this year. We are still trying to determine the logistics on that one.

So how did it turn out?

Thanks for the overview -- very interesting.

The Pacific Northwest has their own section of the monthly Bullsheet

Even the KCBS recognizes them as the best, so the argument is moot
