As this is a Kansas City Barbeque Society Sanctioned event, the rules will be followed to the letter.  The judges at this competition have the experience to not only know the rules, but 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.

There will be meetings scheduled that involve the competitors for the event to spell out anything that might be in question about presentation, timing information or setup.  We understand that a lot of teams involved will have experience but we want to cover the bases for all the teams who may be starting out as well.

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.
