so i suppost i should talk a little about BBQ Etiquette from a spectators view

Never touch a mans pit without asking
in many cases a cook is timed relatively perfectly. If you open the lid on some pits you can loose up to 30mins of cooking time which could be disasterous for the team.

Rubs and ingredients may be a secret
Many teams are quite open and love to talk about their methods/ingredients however be respectful if they arent.
with the up and coming "American style" trend happening at the moment we have found that many people attend events just to copy what teams are doing.
First have a chat to the team and introduce yourself before asking about specifics. It helps the team know you arent there just to steal their recipe.

Crunch time
If you see a team prepping a box for handin or a little flustered while doing something then its probably best just to observe.
We love what we do and dont mind showing all so just enjoy the show.
Yes a pit will cook for 10-16 hours with little to manage but either side of that the pitmasters tend to be pretty busy focusing on presentation/prep and all those other fun things we love

Getting in the way
There are probably only 2 areas you shouldnt stand. inbetween the pit and the prep table.
when we are working/cleaning/preping ect these are really the only locations we tnd to move between so be mindful :)

Asking for samples
Pitmasters will hand out samples when they are avaliable (if allowed).
you dont have to ask, just chat with us and if theres a nibble avaliable we will offer.
We also enjoy trade as many times at these festivals there are vendors whom have products that we would like and vice versa.

Its not for the money
Be aware that attending these competitions in many cases even if you win will cost more money to attend than the prize money thats coming in. so when speaking to the teams its good to understanding where we are coming from


hope you make it and have a great time!

I promise to behave*. I'm not looking to steal recipes or compete, just trying to pick up any tips I can to make my backyard efforts more palatable.

At the moment the post-BBQ canine:human protein consumption ratio is leading to skinnier people in our household.




*unless I find the bourbon :twisted:

You can leave it here :-) Brisbane needs all the help it can get in terms of publicity!!!

Turkey - We'll be cooking on 3 x WSM 18.5inch cookers, I'm happy if you wanted to swing by on Saturday for a bit to have a chat about them since I think I read that's what you're cooking on atm.
