Our website www.smokeonthewaterbbq.com will be updated by end of next week with registration details. It will be a KCBS sanctioned event with certified judges.

Entry fee is $500 and includes 20 amp of electricity and water. Also, the casino is offering $50 in slot play, 3 buffets, show tickets, complimentary drinks, one pull on the million dollar slot machine ($150 value) and will cash winner's checks.

Teams will be checked in Friday with the contest starting on Saturday and judging on Sunday. Room rates for both judges and teams is $36/night for Thursday and Sunday

Smoke on the Water signed a long term deal with the casino with the goal of $500,000 purse within five years. The annual event will always be held third weekend in May along with a ribfest for the public to eat champion barbecue. Let the flames begin!!!

Please forward to any cook team or KCBS Certified Judge who might be interested in this information. If you have any names with E Mail addresses that you could share with us, it would be appreciated if you could send those by E Mail to me (Betty Cates).

Sounds like a real winner. It would be fun to go as a spectator and enjoy some samples.

Re: Vegas for real

Going to be interesting to see who goes where. In my racing days this would be known as cherry picking, meaning going where you had the best chance. I'll miss Little Rock, but will have plenty to do around the midwest. Congrats to Ron and staff for working this idea of making money while having fun.Steve.

Re: Vegas for real

Would not be surprised to see the Wade family show up for that one. And most likely walk off with the bulk of the money

Re: Vegas for real

Any Centralites going to be in Vegas this weekend? I have work in Portland, OR on Monday and Tuesday, and Mama and I are judging at this event since we are going to be in the neighborhood. Would like to hook up with any board members going there.
