This is a Kansas City Barbeque Society Sanctioned event.  The rules will be followed to the letter.  The judges at this competition are experienced; they know the rules and how to enforce them.  If there is any question about how the teams or the judges are to conduct themselves, please refer to the attached official list of rules.

The competition teams will be required to attend a Cook's Meeting to address questions about presentation, timing, and setup.  We understand a lot of teams involved will have experience, but we want to cover the bases for the  new teams also.

As the CREED goes: Rules are designed to be fair and equal to all cookers. Integrity of the Contestants, Judges, KCBS Contest Representatives, and Organizers is essential.
