Competition BBQ Supply Checklist

If you want to cook competition BBQ, then get ready to get some supplies because there is a lot of equipment that you need for each competition BBQ contest.

Everything from your grills and your smokers to the garnish you need for your turn-in box. For us, it usually takes several totes to get it all. And with this Competition BBQ Supply Checklist, you will have a good idea of where to get started.

And after you do a few contests, you start to realize what you need – and what you don’t. You will be able to create your own Competition BBQ Supply Checklist.

This is a basic Competition BBQ Supply Checklist of equipment and items I need for each contest.

This Competition BBQ Supply Checklist is what I use to keep myself organized and to ensure that I don’t forget anything.

With each BBQ competition you will need different things depending on the weather (jackets when it’s cold and a good fan when it’s hot), the sanctioning body (in MBN you need decorations for on-site judging) and your own personal preference.

But this Competition BBQ Supply Checklist will give you a good idea of what it takes to compete in competition BBQ.
