Good point. I don't see why you couldn't put different cuts, but I don't have that answer.

Oh, another difference between BCS and KCBS is the condition of the meat upon inspection. Based on my understanding, meats may be trimmed/cut, as long as no seasoning/flavoring is used prior to inspection. Also, fires can be lit at the team's discretion, but meat can't go on until inspected.

I would love for someone with more knowledge of the details would weigh in. We go over the rules in the cook's meeting on Friday night, but these would be helpful answers for planning.

Hey man - If you do the same thing you do in KCBS, here in BCS you will be fine. We do KCBS also and the only difference is the time between turn ins. (45 minutes instead of 30 minutes). Same 10 minute window. 5 before, 5 after.

Thanks guys for responding, we are down in Tucson catering & don't have great access to the internet.

For all the turn ins, you can use different cuts as long as you have 6 individual pieces of each.

The rest is as AZ Redneck stated.  

I'll be sending out an info e-mail hopefully on Monday or Tuesday.

We are working to obtain a Health Permit for each team for this event so that everyone can participate in the Public Sampling as this really helps our Charity out.  

Green Mountain has donated a Jim Bowie for us to use as an incentive for this.  More details on this will be in the email.

We look forward to seeing you out here, it's going to be a great comp.  Call me if you want to discuss more.  602-363-5196

Thanks everyone! 

One last question.  Is there a judge preference down there as far as BB ribs vs. spare?

Hi Mike
Will we be setting up in the dirt field or on the paved parking lot?

How big of spaces will we have to set up in? 

Do we need a health permit or food handlers card to sale samples?

Danny,  I'm about to send out an info e-mail.

If you don't have an RV Spot Reserved, you will be setting up in Gravel.

Each team has a 20 X 20.  If you need more, we need to know ASAP.

We are working with the Health Department to get Health Permits for all teams.  We should know by Friday if this was successful.  It's looking like it will be.

You will still need a Food Handler's Card.  You can get that online by visiting http://www.maricopa.gov/2268/Food-Service-Worker-Training

I think the cost is like $7.  

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks,

Pleasant Harbor was my first BCS event. I was thinking with the low entry fees and no National Sanctioning this would be a bit of a Mickey Mouse contest. To the contrary, this was a GREAT contest. Michael and crew put on a first class contest and I had a great time. Thank you so much. AZBarbeque Rocks!
