Payouts

Grand Prize Bonus is awarded based on total team points for judged  entries, Chicken, Pork Spare Ribs and Brisket.  People’s Choice prizes are determined by the number of votes (tickets) placed in each competitors’ bucket.  Doors will be open to the public at 12:30 PM  Sunday, May 16th.  Plan to have something fresh coming off of the smoker, all afternoon.  If you don’t have something tasty for attendees to sample, you can’t win the Peoples’ Choice Award.
