Figure this is relevant... Trying to organize a KCBS event in Paris. I'd love to hear if any of you guys have done those before, and what your thoughts are.
My family in Alabama have a team and I've helped out a couple times at a few of their KCBS events in Nashville, Miss., and Alabama. They are a lot of fun (especially when you win!) and each time I head down south to help out, the competitions get bigger and bigger. They are very competitive events but you will meet some of the nicest people and of course some of the worlds best bbq. I highly recommend KCBS competitions to anyone that enjoys cooking bbq! I'm not 100% sure on how to go about organizing the event, but your toughest part may be getting enough certified judges and maybe finding enough teams to compete.
