Welcome to the best BBQ board on the net. Please post often and include the food pics. We love FOOD PORN here. Take your camera to the comp and show us around.

By the way, get the WSM. You can get about 3 for the price of 1 egg. And they travel much better. That would be all you need for a KCBS comp.

Christian,

Good to have you on Board!!

If it is a KCBS sanctioned contest "generally" NO, the teams are not vending while at the comp, you may get some freebies on Saturday after turn-in time if there are any teams that feel generous and give some of their Q away, however, usually, there are restrictions upon them doing so.

If it is not a KCBS sanctioned contest, then I would have no idea what other sanctioning bodies permit and don't permit.

One word of advice, when I went to my first comp several years ago I felt that most of the teams were pretty stand-offish, some here may say that's my fault (don't listen to them) however, around turn in times they are very busy and really don't have the time to talk BBQ or anything else. Don't confuse being busy with rude or ignoring you.

I found that late Friday afternoon and Friday evenings is when most teams feel their most talkative and are willing to spend some social time with the public....I think the consumption of alcohol has something to do with this.

Good luck and welcome, once again.
