Hi Mike
I will need a space 30X20
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

I think the cost is like $7.  

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Pleasant Harbor BBQ Showdown / Re: BBQ Boot Camp
« Last post by Mcevoyrom on January 16, 2018, 02:48:31 pm »
The bootcamp will actually field a team and compete. This is where this is great if you are just starting out. We show you exactly what we do while we are competing, so there is no doubt we are leaving any secrets out. We make it hands on and the bootcamp then does the trimming, seasoning, cooking, and presenting with our direction. I think this would be the way to go if you are new as it will cut possibly years off your progression as a bbq cook/team. I had something similar to this that was as hands on when I started and with in months we were seriously competing as well as placing higher against some of the best teams in the nation.

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?

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

Lance ~ I have no problem judging either rib, I mostly cook loin back babys at home... Some may put in 2 bone cut..

Maybe some judges can answer that question...

I'd like to know myself!
