<This is my opinion only!!! Not representing KCBS as a whole nor the board as a whole>

A competitor series is a contest that's not necessarily fully within the KCBS "standard" rules. A great example is the LP Que Series (all gas cookers) and the Pellet vs. Gas Contest, both organized by Jumping Jim in Iowa. The contest uses KCBS Scoring and Judging methods.

Candy Sue is not really giving you an opinion.
That is a "disclaimer" since she is a BOD member.

The info she posted is a fact.

I personally think it is great to get some variety into the comps.

BTW, Competitor events don't count for TOTY---- if I understand correctly.

As Candy says, using a fuel source other than wood/charcoal but using KCBS judging rules and standards. Allows the gas passers to show that they can compete with the excuse to drink and lie crowd and produce good Q.

I dont think its just a fuel thing. For instance you could run a pork only contest like the Q-Lossal and get it sanctioned under the Competitor series rules.

The competitor series was designed for out of the norm contests. While on the BOD I tried to get many of the backyard contests sanctioned under the series so the categories could vary as well as the fuel source. And they are not eligible for the Jack or the Royal.

Probably because he wants to know how people feel. Is it not OK to ask more than one question???????????

If you are looking for an official response from KCBS and they have until Monday, then just tell us now because I doubt you are going to get an official position from KCBS on this forum or any other forum. I don't think that is how they do business.

Did you try emailing Carolyn at KCBS? I know that Karen in the office was out the last week. She handles contests... So she might be a little backed-up?

Yes, I received an answer from KCBS and the problem was corrected .....As an Organizer of an BBq Event in Ct. they (KCBS) tagged our Event in September 2010 as a (Competitor Series) they stated "It basically means the contest does not fit under our four-meat category regulations. For example, one contest is just a ribs competition. That’s pretty much it! Let me know if you have any other questions… "

Our event was a traditional four meat event exactly as we did last year in full compliance with KCBS rules and standards. In fact, the KCBS web site clearly shows the results of our event with scoring and team placement for each of the four meat categories....KCBS Representatives Ken & Kathie Dakai certified the results.the "competitor series" designation appeared after our competition....we are curious as to who would have initiated and authorized this reclassification, and why? We recognize that the KCBS web site is THE place to search for everything that's BBQ so it's important to get it right.
Its fixed thats all that matters ......Thanks for all the opinions and now we understand what the tag (Competitor Series) means NOT GOOD FOR MY COMPETITORS
