Default Need the Info to get started.

We like to play competetive cooking up here in NE, but it seems that lately the elders on the team are more concerned promoting the business with the cooker ( cooker looks like a cement mixer with the co. logo) than actually entering cookoffs where we don't have the judges bought. Am planning to secede, and do some real amatuer cooking but don't know about sanctioning and stuff. Have all the equipt, just neeed the Brothers to let me know what I need to go some where besides the Annual VFD Cookoff.

If you really care about this place, you'll show some respect for it.

Not quite sure what you're asking. Are you looking for events in your area, rules, or what kind of stuff you should bring?

Sanctioning, Amateur events, and some of the fine print things. Do I need insurance of any kind? Do I really need a sponsor to start? What kind of yen are talking for entry fees?

If you're talking about organizing your own event I can't really help ya there but I'm sure someone else can point you in the right direction.
If you're talking about entering events then you don't need insurance (maybe if you're going to vend?) or a sponsor. Entry fees around here go around 175 bucks per team for a 20x20 spot, 50 bucks for an additional space, 35 more for electric. Water's usually included. We usually blow 700 bucks or so per contest, all things considered. That includes a lot of beer though.
HTH.

Do you belong to a sanctioning group for comps? Don't really hear of a Ne BBQ'ers Assoc. or anything. I hear Ks has a great array of events for amateurs. Don't feel confident enough to run with big dogs yet. Looking for smaller events.

I don't know your exact locale but there are 3 in September in you state. Check the cal for othe months. Average entry fee is 150-200, plus your meat, fuel, food and booze.
I was really intimidated to start and waited far too long before I got over it. Once you go you are hooked and you will have a new very expensive hobby.
Thats my story and I'm stickin to it.
