You’ll need a big piece of land, several acres at least, water and power for the teams (which can be temporary) and lots of sponsors to foot the bill. The most successful contests are also tied in with events that the public can participate in such as a carnival, craft vendors, concert, or car race. That’s not to say you can’t just have a barbecue contest, but there’s not much for the public to do at one, as most cook teams aren’t equipped to compete and sell their product at the same time.
If you’re interested in having the FBA sanction your event, click here for our sanctioning agreement; that’s the first step. We have plenty of folks who will help you get organized and make your contest a success.
