PRO TEAM CONTEST INFORMATION


Waxhaw’s Grill’n and Chill’n is a part of our fall festival called Autumn Treasures. You will set up for the BBQ Competition on Friday with judging and the public tasting to take place on Saturday.

The contest consists of 4 categories for the professional teams (chicken, pork ribs, pork shoulder or butt, and beef brisket.). All 4 categories are required for Grand Champion. Only one entry per team per category is allowed.

All cooking spaces will be numbered and pre-assigned by the contest organizers and trained volunteers.
Each team will consist of a chief cook and up to (4) assistants. Each team will provide cookers to be used exclusively by that team within the team’s assigned cooking space. You will provide your own meat for the KCBS judged portion of the contest. Containers for your KCBS judged entries will be provided by the event organizers.

It is extremely important that you read through the KCBS Rules and Regulations. It is your responsibility to closely follow/understand this information to avoid disqualification for the judged portion of the contest.

Each team must have a fire extinguisher. All of your equipment-including vehicles–must fit in your assigned space.

PRO TEAM PUBLIC TASTING INFORMATION


The public tasting will take place on Saturday from 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm. Participation is optional but highly encouraged as it helps raise additional funds for local charities who provide the volunteers to help run the contest for you. We ask that you cook only the amount of Butts and Ribs that you can conveniently fit on your grill and not interfere with your KCBS entries. We will provide all volunteers and supplies for public sampling and supply the Boston Butts and St. Louis Style Ribs for the public tasting to all participating teams.

Public voting will be done via BamText Voting System.  Patrons will simply text in their vote to a designated number and the system will tally all the votes and send real time reports.  After each attendee submits their vote, system will send them an automatic response acknowledging their vote. One vote per cell number.
