Supply Checklist for Competition BBQ

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 parsley you need to decorate your box. For us, it usually takes several totes to get it all.

But after you do a few contests, you start to realize what you need - and what you don't.

This is a basic supply list of equipment and items I need for each contest.

This list of competition BBQ supplies is what I use to keep myself organized and to ensure that I don't forget something.

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 checklist of supplies will give you a good idea of what it takes to compete in competition BBQ.
