    Talking with our local county fair board I suggest they should look at doing a bbq contest at the county fair. They thought it was a great idea and they asked me to help organize it. They are looking at just starting with a rib cook off contest Any good ways to start this process? I see it more as a backyard contest and wouldn't be sanctioned KCBS event. I would love to see some ideas of other contests.

    Well if they are set on just ribs then you may want to consider a couple side catagories like sauce and baked beans just to make it a bit more interesting to the public. ya also need to decide on a single format cooking style. Just wood and charcoal? You will also have to consider your local health regs for food handleing. Hope this helps.

    im doinga couple rib contests this year, non KCBS.

    cheap entry fees($15-$25 vs the high cost of a KCBS event), one is ribs and a wild card item, and one is ribs, chicken, burgers, and another pork item.

    judges are locals in both I believe
