I am looking into entering some BBQ contests in my rookie season. I have a question:  What is the average size of the area assigned to a competitor. Is it 10 x 10, 20 x 20, etc? Thanks all for your help.
Hello dlee,  I think it depends on each contest.  Have you tried the Greater Omaha Barbeque Society

They can probably point you in the right direction.

This will be our rookie year as well.  From reading some of the previous and current event apps and the few comps I've been to, the spaces are usually 20x20.  In some cases you can pay for a larger space or RV spot.  hth

Thanks for sharing your thoughts. It's +8 in Omaha this morning and forecast to be -18 on Sunday and Monday but I am still considering smoking some chicken:). is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
