The funny thing is, there have been folks here in Utah who have said the Utah BBQ Org couldn't put on 10 Events in one year... We have 10 BBQ Comps on the schedule now and may add 2 more! All with prize money of at least $3,000 - One with $25,000 that is now an Automatic qualifier for the World Food Championships in Las Vegas for BBQ! All that takes hard work and a team effort!

The same folks disparage BBQ Events that, in their opinion, have low prize money and not worth their time, when BBQ Comps start as grass roots events and grow the sport!

This year is going to be hard work and fun at the same time! I think a local contest with $3,000 in prize money is something to be proud of! I think an Organization who take the time and effort to develop over 10 events in a year is also something to be proud of! I am proud of the work the Utah BBQ Organization has done to take BBQ in Utah to the next level! We hope all the new teams coming up has as great of a time at one of our events as we have had, now that we have cleaned up our sport here in Utah!

Wild West BBQ Shoot Out in Wendover - Team List – Aug 23-24

Are you willing to Host a VIP from the Casino’s for $50? The Casino will assign teams with VIP’s that can come and hang out with their team, watch as little or as much as they like Friday night and Saturday. They will know to be invisible during turn-in times!

High Rollers Choice is a people’s choice but the VIP High Rollers has a different ticket that counts DOUBLE for the Points! This will be a 50/50 split of the money with the teams and Casinos. Teams set their own prices – One Ticket is One Dollar!

PLUS – There is a High Roller Choice Competition with another $2,500 in Prize Money & additional trophies!
Thanks Jesse!
Woo-hoo! Great work Jesse and all of those who have made this happen.

What might be good is a hotel package for CBJs that would include room and bus ride out and back.

I've never heard anybody say something like this.
It's certainly worth a shot and sounds like a lot of fun!

Thanks Jesse. Like everybody else, we're already starting to put a summer calendar together seeing what fits where. I'm sure we'll see each other at some point this summer. :-)
This is exciting! Since we are opening a restaurant in March, my comp time will be limited but we will try to make as many as we can. Way to go boys!!
Appetites Barbeque is in, if we can ever get the link to work.

Works great! We are in.
This will be an exciting event...

Someone help me find Wild West BBQ Shoot Out on the KCBS event list 2013...

I searched the contest name, contest dates, state and the last name of the KCBS rep and can't find the event...

.
The hosts of the event are applying for the sanctioning!

Are all the competitions that are expecting to be sanctioned this year by the KCBS on the events calendar already?

I too had thought there were going to events in Idaho this year, one in July in Boise and another in September, but when I checked last week neither of those could be found either.

Fortunately at this moment in time, it doesn't clash with any other nearby State contests, but that could change at any moment, when some one else creates a contest covering the same dates!
Be great to see you guys John!

Generally, Yes...

At this current moment Karrin stated that events will not be posted as Tenative until the KCBS Bod has approved the event...

One item that is coming to bear for KCBS Bod approval, on application events, is that the front office staff will be allowed to approve an event to be santioned using current standards, with out approval by the KCBS BoD at their once a month BoD meeting...

I believe this is a great step forward in streamlining the santioning process and I will applaud this kind of forward thinking...

I am excited to see the future of the Wild West BBQ Shootout as a KCBS santioned event and I will make every effoft to attend at any capacity that I am needed...
This is event is now listed on the KCBS site under Events:

08/23/13 to 08/24/13
