    Hello Yall,
    Are there ever any competitons in or near southern Louisiana (Baton Rouge area), that yall know of? I'd like ot get into these things, but have never even been to one. I know it would probably be best if I went as a spectator first and just took notes, but I so not know how to find out about them. Any suggestions? Thanks, Steve

    You may want to start in Ville Platte this Saturday. I do not know if there is a one place stop website but check your local events calendars. NO, Slidell, Hammond I know have BBQ competitions.

    Blues and BBQ is in Hammond every March. I attended this year as spectator and learned much.

    Cooked with the Smokin Scottsmen in Hammond this year. Great event, except its in downtown Hammond, next to night clubs, and the train tracks run about every 35 minutes (the tracks are about 30 yards behind the cooking area)

    Lots of cookoffs near you. Some have backyard divisions.

    Go for it (even if you only cook 1 or 2 categories)
