    cool, I hope its a success so they can do it bigger and better as a KCBS contest next year. The Smokin in the Junction contest in west des moines was non sanctioned last year but they had enough interest so they got sanctioned this year. If you're looking to cook the non sanctioned contests will usually be a little easier as most comp teams want to go where the KCBS points are so you end up with alot of backyard cookers, the only problem is the organization of the event is often times not as good as it would be with KCBS reps were on hand.
  6. actually there used to be a KCBS contest in Clinton..a very well run one at that..the organizer of that old contest will eb helping out at this one though so it should be a good contest even though its non sanctioned...should still be a good time
