    Entry Fees For BBQ Competition

    What are the typical entry fees for a BBQ competition. I'm thinking about one like the Citrus Center Boys and Girls Club in Winter Haven Smoke on the Water Competition.

    You can get more info here: http://boysandgirlsbbq.com/

    They don't have prices up yet for 2016 but it is a Florida BBQ Association event, not a KCBS event. Rules are slightly different. I have competed in a FLBBQA event and the entry fee was around $150 for the early backyard division entry. Some are more expensive and some are slightly less.

    The FLBBQA site is http://floridabbqassociation.org/

    Plant City does a nice event in November (The Plant City Pig Jam) and is a KCBS event. Their entry fee is $125 for the backyard division

    I competed in the Pig Jam last year and got 2nd place (first loser) in brisket in the Backyard division.
