As if winning over $2,000.00 in cash weren’t incentive enough to win the grand prize at the 7th annual Tri-State BBQ Festival, we’ve got more reason for the teams to go all-out!
How about a custom trophy made by artist Joe Goodson?
That’s awesome, but there’s more! Is it the fact that our contest is the STATE CHAMPIONSHIP for the sanctioning body, the Florida Bar-B-Que Association? That’s cool, too but no. Is it because the winner from our competition earns points for the Triple Crown cook off? no…. Is it because the winner gets a “draw” to be considered for the Jack Daniels Invitational? No, but getting warmer!
We just received the paperwork that the winner of the Tri-State BBQ Festival on the professional side will automatically get invited to compete in the
33rd Annual American Royal World Series of Barbecue®
October 4-7, 2012
American Royal Complex
Kansas City, Missouri
I’m not kidding! The winner from our contest will go on to represent the Tri-State BBQ Festival and the FBA in what is arguably one of the most prestigious invitationals in the world! The paperwork for the winner to complete and return to the officials at the American Royal World Series of Barbecue will be in the winners envelope with the check for $2,000. (Oh, yeah… and a W-9 that I need back.) Best of all- your entry fee to the Royal is included in your win.
GOOD LUCK COMPETITORS!
