 What will teams learn?
Start up teams will learn about the contest rules, the proper way to present their entries, learn about what they need / don't need for a contest, learn about timelines and working against the clock in a smaller, less costly contest.
Why start here?
Tailgate contests are a great way to "get your feet wet" be- fore jumping all in. Deciding if this is a new adventure you will be adding to your future. It's a great stepping stone to bigger contests later. It's a great way to meet fellow BBQ enthusiasts and build a relationship. MOST contests have seasoned BBQ representatives that are there to help you and guide you.
