Competition rules available here:
The Best Dish is open to any item, but all items must be prepared on site.
Each team will be allotted a space that is approximately 20' long x 15’ deep. Teams are allowed to bring a 10x10 canopy, tables, chairs and family friendly team signage to place within their allotted space. You will not be able to erect any structures (other than a 10x10 canopy). All items necessary to cook your ribs and chicken must be brought by the team (e.g., grills, smokers, wood, charcoal, water).
