Default side bets?

After seeing the interest in the Rib side bet at Salisbury this past weekend, I wonder if more teams would be interested in this action. I have a friend that fishes in off shore contests and many times the side bets or calcuttas are as big as the regular pot. The rib bet in Salisbury was $20. Using that figure, do you think there would be any interest in tossing in $100 per team, for all 5 catagories at $20 each? (chicken,ribs,pork,brisket,overall) You could even let individual team members enter a catagory for your team, if they toss up the $20, they keep the loot if you win the side bet. Think about it, Salisbury had 83 teams, if 75 teams get in, that would be an addition $1500 to the winner in each catagory, that might buy a couple of tanks of gas! I know it would be a pain for someone to keep track of, but maybe the organizing team would get a free entry to the side bet to ease the pain of keeping track of everything. Just a thought. And no I am not volunteering to be the collection man at the next contest. Thanks Michele!

I like that! That looks like a twist that makes this hobby this much more fun! Its already an expensive hobby to do, why not make more expensive for some, and less expensive for others!

After spending $600 in gas for Salisbury an extra $100 for a side bet seems steep to me. (Granted I spent $110 just for Tequila). If it was an all five thing I'd be in for $50 but I'm not sure about $100. We spent $1400 this weekend and didn't get a top 3 call in anything. That means we would have spent an extra $100 and still walked away empty handed.

I would. I think though the administration of 4 individual categories plus overall would be a bit much. I would definitely be in for $50 on highest overall score, maybe $100.

A lot of cook offs we do Calcutta's and some side action on who hit the highest in a categories sometimes makes for some great fun and money

I think the side bets are great but hate when they get to big. $20 is almost harmless and fun. I like keeping it to one category(any category) Overall might be tough for some. With one category it makes it anybody's game.My .02

My thoughts were you could enter 1 or all 5, $20 or $100, what ever was your pleasure, or none at all. I was just thinking outloud, and I know that is trouble!

Shouldn't you be thinking about chicken ?

We did a one category side bet at our contest this past weekend but all of the proceeds went to the charity.

My Cousin's FUBAR-B-Q team wanted a rib challenge. The winner gets a frozen bottle of Crown at the GAB. Loser serving the winner thier first shot. Did I mention I am going to love getting that first shot :)
