“Cook-in Camargue” KCBS Competition
We, at the French Barbecue Association, are please to announce that the “Cook-in Camargue Season II” is officially sanctioned by The Kansas City Barbecue Association (KCBS) This premier BBQ Competition will be held in conjunction with the “Camargue BBQ Festival” an annual event held in Saintes Maries des les mer, the fabulous Capital of the Camargue.
Cook-in Camargue will be a KCBS Traditional Sanctioned Contest
This is the most popular type of contest KCBS sanctions. A Traditional Sanctioned Contest requires the teams to cook 4 meats (Chicken, Pork Ribs, Pork Butt, & Brisket). The cooking source at a Traditional Sanctioned Contest shall be of wood, wood pellets or charcoal. KCBS Rules and regulations apply. Traditional Sanctioned Contests are eligible for the American Royal and the Jack Daniels World Championship. In addition, all teams who participate in a Traditional Sanctioned Contest earn points towards the KCBS Team of the Year awards held each year at their annual banquet. 2017 Grand Champions will also be eligible to compete at The World Food Championships
In addition to the required KCBS meat categories there will be a “Anything But” Category. Teams that wish to particpate, must prepare a dish of their choice that is not represented in the main meat categories required by KCBS. ( For example Duck, Fish, Lamb, Veal, etc) The next requirement is that your entry MUST be cooked on a Weber grill, examples are One Touch, Master Touch, Smokey Mountain, Go Anywhere, etc. If you don’t own a Weber grill (Unthinkable) a Mastertouch will be provided for you onsite. In addition to the usual judging criteria of Appearance, Taste, and Tenderness your entries will be judged in your cook area by the panel of judges officiating the Camargue BBQ Festival and Plating skills and Originality will count towards your overall score.
