Ontario’s First Ever KCBS Sanctioned Event!!! Smokin’ for Gold BBQ Championship

 

 

Great news for those of us in Ontario that compete. The first ever KCBS Sanctioned Event in Ontario - Smokin’ for Gold BBQ Championship will take place Friday, July 8 and Saturday, July 9, 2011 Cedar Run Horse Park, Clarksburg.

Why is having a KCBS Sanctioned event good news?  Lets take this right from their website:

The benefits of having a sanctioned BBQ contest are numerous. The Kansas City Barbeque Society (KCBS) is the world’s largest organization of barbeque and grilling enthusiasts. KCBS sanctions nearly 300 contests across the U.S. annually.

A sanctioned contest offers the organizer:

  • (1) Integrity,
  • (2) Experience,
  • (3) A built in base of cookers and judges, and
  • (4) A support system of other organizers and members.

For the teams, it offers the assurance that a contest will be conducted in a professional manner, the prize monies will be awarded as advertised, and that the rules will be followed. Some events start off non-sanctioned and work toward sanction. Generally, if you start off as a KCBS sanctioned event your contest will run smoother, have more trust from the teams, and have a higher success rate. A non-sanctioned event is not highly regarded, nor supported by teams if they are not aligned with a proven entity. However sanctioning alone cannot guaranty the number of teams competing or the success of your event
