We do competitions that are more for fun then anything else. Rules are lenient, no official rules (we usually get staff or other campers to be judges). Prizes (donated by forum sponsors) are given at awards. Generally there is only 1 winner but depending on how many items are donated we might be able to have 2 or 3 places for each category.
Judging is based on "Favorite"...in the past we have had them pick there favorite or given numbers to each (1-5)
Ribs - Spare or Baby Back Ribs. Can be sauced or not.
Chicken - Any part or the whole chicken and you can chose what you will serve to the judges
Something Special - Make your best appetizer, Side Dish, Desert, or anything else that goes well with a meal. This category always brings out alot of thought provoking ideas.
