* Electricity will be provided for an additional $25 fee. If paying online, please add the option on the drop down for the full fee. Non-electric teams will be placed together in the competition for logistical reasons. 120v power supply is available no farther than 50’ from each space. Bring your own extension cords.
* The Peoples Choice Competition on Friday night is optional, but encouraged, for all teams. We hope that all teams participate in this event. Last year this was one of the top-rated events of the entire festival! We have listened to participating teams and explored better ways to host this event and we hope that the new guidelines make this a more fair and easier event for the teams and festival goers. Teams are asked to prepare exactly 150 servings off their own menu to pass out in 2 oz sample sizes (cups provided by the festival). The meat can be precooked then warmed up for convenience. To encourage participation, teams who select to participate will receive $50 off of their registration fee. The prize money for the Public Tasting will be $500 for the grand prize and $250 for the runner-up!
Sampling and public voting will be more regulated this year, with tickets matching the number of available samples, sampling wristbands and a unique voting tokens.
Larger trash receptacles and more small receptacles will be made available this year
Ice will be available for sale
* Please complete your online registration in full and when you request cooking spots, please be fair with the size of your rig and serving tents. We could be limited on space and ask each team to choose reasonably. We will have 16′ for small teams, 24′ for medium rigs/teams and 32′ for large rigs. All spots have 15′-18′ for depth. If space is available after final deadline, we will make sure teams are comfortable with the amount of space each team receives. Stacy & Glazed BBQ Competition staff will park each contestant as they see fit.
