Be Prepared. It’s a long time motto of the Boy Scouts; but it could very easily apply to barbecue competitions. There’s so much to remember. So much you need to be ready for. On top of everything you need to keep things sanitary!
The Kansas City BBQ Society has some pointers for prepping for your first competition. You can get your supplies in our BBQ Shop powered by Amazon for the best prices. Feel free to print the PDF list below. Share it. Make copies (better yet just book mark this page)! There’s a lot to keep track of.
