BBQ contest season is well underway and many competitors are gearing up for a busy string of contests during the summer months.
It's never too late to join in the fun! The KCBS Bullsheet and National Barbecue News have extensive listings of scheduled bbq contests and contact information.
Besides entry fees and contest meat, here's a short list of items to put on your bbq packing list, whether it's your first contest, or whether you've done more than fifty. I've posted this list before, but I've added some new items based on some recent experiences.
If you see some I've missed, please let me know.
Electric Box Fan
Heavy duty oven BBQ mitts/gloves
Extra Change of Clothes (or 2, or 3)
For a more complete listing of items you might need, Smokin' Guns BBQ has put together a very good contest checklist that you might find helpful.
If you have additional questions, feel free to ask.
