    American Royal in KC

    I was thinking of going to it this year as it is in my "home" stadium but I have no idea what to expect, I've never even been to a small competition before.

    If I had the opportunity I would go. I'd go just for the experience and to taste some of the Q that is available. I'm sure you won't regret it.

      I'll have my wife embroider you a "Cool Smoke" shirt. Walk around in that, plenty people will ask you to taste their food.

      What surprised me about the Royal, is that Tuffy won it one year, and the grand champion check was $10,000. I thought it would be at least $50,000 for how big that thing is. Not sure I would even break even after getting to and from that thing coupled with the taxes and all the expenses there.

        Agreed, especially with entry fee's and probably a thousand in meat.

      It's not as expensive as you'd think! I guarantee that even with travel costs, Tuffy did better than break even with that $10,000 pot. My expenses at the Royal were $250 for my space (his was $400). Fuel for me was about $100 (that would be a higher cost for Tuffy -- he's farther away from KC). Meat for 2 contests (if cooking the invitational too), that's about $200 per contest cooking SRF, add more if using Duroc pork, less if using cheaper brisket. Supplies, etc. was likely another $100. Because the AR is a Sat-Sun contest, I'd have to leave right after the awards on Sunday. Needed a RV spot for Sunday night, then back to work on Monday.
