Rib Cook-Off FAQ

What constitutes a hand washing station?

There are five basic things needed for a handwashing station...
  1. A clean enclosed container to hold drinkable water. Can be one of those drinking water containers with a spout.
  2. Liquid or bar hand soap.
  3. A greywater container to catch the water used to wash hands. Typically just a 5 gallon bucket
  4. Single-use paper or cloth towels.
  5. Separate container for trash (if paper towels are used).

What standards are being used to judge the ribs?

We have a certified Kansas City BBQ Society Judge on site.  The KCBS standards will be used.

Can I cook more than 15 racks of ribs?

While 15 racks of ribs will be provided by @the Grounds, you can cook more than 15 racks.  No other style of ribs or type of meat is allowed. 

Can I cook a side dish to add to my ribs?

While the answer is no, you can not cook a side dish there, you can bring one with you to add to the tasting boats for the People's Choice Award.  No selling is allowed at your tables.
