Default Supply Lists

I'm entering my first competition, the battle of the bbq-brethren, and I need to know what supplies are needed. I've already created a list in Excel and categorized by bin, cooler and trailer. If some of the experienced members can post their supply lists and any other tips, that would really help me out.

There are a couple of checklists on the Smoking Guns web site that are a good starting point.


I strongly recommend doing a mock competition and setting up in your driveway or backyard and going through the full cook. Take careful notes of every thing that you have to run back into the house for. You won't be able to do that at the real comp.

Also, if you do happen to forget something, chances are that one of your neighbors will have it and will be willing to help.

Alright, alright...........you got me! Man, that was a mistake!

Hey, the Hawks were on...............give me a break!

If you're going to bring a TV don't do like we did............bring a big manly LCD!

I'd post my comp list, but first I would have to eliminate the massaging lounge chair!

If you want to see my list it's in the thread Competition Site Set-up Advice on the second page. But be very careful............it has taken much flak for being way too big.......but I asked for it!
