Default Competition Attendance Levels

Hello,

What are the comps that have the highest attendance by the public and what are those attendance numbers?

The events don't HAVE to be just BBQ. They could be BBQ/Grilling or BBQ/music or BBQ/whatever.

Your help is appreciated.

Eric

Eric... I'm blanking on the name of the event. But there was one a few weeks ago in in the South West that was gigantic in terms of attending. (NM I believe)

The Royal or MIM I would guess are the biggest. Even just counting competitors the Royal has to be one of the biggest.

Houston for sure, and the rib burnoffs like Reno, Naperville, Cleveland and of course the Poteet Strawberry Festival.
