Default Flying to a comp and need to get some equipment there

First off, Happy New year to all. Question is: How do I get some kitchen equipment to a comp if I am flying to the comp? I want to take me usual cooking utensil (knives, temp probes etc) and other accessories but don't want them lost or confiscated. Everything will be in a tool box... How do I go about get it there without having any issues???

Thanks... Have a safe and prosperous 2010!!!

Last year I flew to a contest in Arizona, I had a cooker being supplied by a local cook ( thanks again Thom) , I packed a box with supplies in it and shipped it UPS 2 weeks earlier to him, he brought it to the site. I got with the air lines and read there rules of carry ons and pre trimmed and packed my briskets, ribs, and chicken. I carried them on and bought butts when I was there. Hope this helps.

why not just check it in with the luggage? You can transport those things in cargo, and pick it up at baggage claim.

I've done it a couple of times. I pack stuff in empty coolers or my luggage. I'll also take my meats in a cooler. I've even brought parsley, because we fly Southwest and can bring extra bags/coolers. You can also pay them $25 for an extra bag. Which is cheaper than using UPS. Plus I get an extra cooler. When shipping your knives, just plan on seeing one of those TSA letters in your luggage, because they opened it.

With our trips to NY this year, we checked them twice and shipped them once. In the future we will most likely ship them. We did like that they searched our bags, you never know what might end up missing. We used UPS and shipped it to another team that made sure we would get it.

UPS was actually cheeper for us than checking a bag.

Capt.

You talking about Little Rock? If so, I can probably find room for a couple items as we are driving. If not Little Rock, never mind....

If it is NLR, Capt'n Ron, you can use my trailer if you want. I'm not cooking it (going to be a judge!). It even has a coffee pot!
