2016 Triple B BBQ Cook-off Rules
These rules and regulations are subject to interpretation and implementation by the Florida Panhandle BBQ
Society (FPBS) and the Triple B Committee. Their decisions are final.
Check in- All teams should arrive on Main Street between 5:00-6:00pm on Friday 3/18/16 and report to
any Triple B Committee member for location assignment. A MANDATORY cooks meeting will be held
from 6:30-7:30. The location of this meeting will be emailed to you prior to the event.
Meat inspection- Shortly after you are assigned a cooking location, a FPBS official will be visiting your
team. All meats to be cooked will be inspected and must be unseasoned, uncooked, and stored in
containers at 40 degrees Fahrenheit or below. Meats that do not pass inspection will not be allowed to
be turned in for judging. No meats will be allowed to leave the site after it has been inspected. No
exceptions will be made to these rules.
Cooked on site- All meats will be brought to the cooking site raw. All meats must be USDA or State DA
inspected and passed. The official start time for the Triple B Cook-off is 5:00pm on Friday 3/19/16 (upon
completion of meat inspection). All cooking, seasoning, and preparing of food must be done within the
confines of their assigned space during contest hours. All entries must be prepared and cooked by
registered teams only.
Entries- The Triple B Cook-off recognizes only one entry in each category per team. Multiple entries
from the same piece of meat will not be allowed. It will be the responsibility of the head cook to
monitor entries. Contestants must be at least 18 years of age to participate in the cook-off.

of your barbecue (any meat). For each sample ticket you receive, the Crestview Area Chamber will
