If you didn't know, this is a Kansas City BBQ Society sanctioned contest. We have to cook 4 meats and they are chicken, pork ribs, pork shoulder (picnic, butt or both) and beef brisket. The hard part is the turn in times on Sunday. The chicken is due in at noon, the ribs at 12:30, pork at 1pm and brisket at 1:30pm.
I don't know exactly how many teams will be there. Last year they said that they were capping the number of entries at 48 or 54 teams. Also last year they had entries from as far away as New York and five different states. The current point leader (Quau) in the KCBS team of the year standings will be there. CancerSucksChicago.com the 2006 Jack Daniels World Champion will be there.
If you're in the neighborhood stop down and say hi. Also, on Sunday, after turn in, most teams will put out samples of their Championship BBQ. Don't expect the samples to last too long as there are a lot of great tasting food.
