SoCal Meatup is hosting a backyarder in Yorba Linda California for people looking to start competing

Discussion in 'Upcoming/Recurring BBQ Competitions (KCBS or Other' started by lght, Oct 5, 2011.

  1. This will be our 2nd backyard competition for Southern California teams looking to get into competition BBQ.

    The competition is a great way to practice your skills and get immediate verbal feedback from certified judges who do not know who's meat their judging, but the cook will know when their numbers called.

    The last So Cal Meat UP backyard comp in Ontario had 9 teams - 7 teams never competed before - top 4 teams overall were brand new! 

    The feedback from the judges was invaluable information with even the "pro" team members that came out to support leaned in to listen to the comments.

    I was just reading that flyer... sounds interesting.
  4. Just got word from Kelly Macintosh our KCBS contest coordinator that KCBS will be officially sponsoring the event! 

    So if you know of a team in So Cal or close by who wants to get LIVE FEEDBACK from certified judges instead of just a number on a paper it's only $25 to compete. 
  5. this will be my second 'backyarder'...

    my first was in Ontario, where i took 1st in sauce, 2nd in ribs and 2nd in chicken.  for that event i was able to use my gasser, a Great Outdoors Smokey Mountain.  as this event is not allowing propane, i bought a new wsm and will be using that.  i'm seasoning the wsm now and am finding that it keeps the temps spot on. 

    i'm lookin to kick some tail again on the 19th in yorba linda, and am now thinking of entering the 2012 season and declaring my intent for the CBBQA RoY.  obviously for that i'll have to get another wsm, or not as i to have a traeger lil' tex.

    hope to see everyone in yorba linda,

    My daughter and I will be there. She is 13 and wanted to make sure I wrote her name in as the head cook. [​IMG]

    She also thought of our team name 'Thunder-Birds BBQ' (her school mascot).

    Should be a lot of fun !
