WhiteTrash BBQ -- Real Pit Barbecue from New York City. This is the story of a fire obsessed guy, living in Brooklyn, with a dream of producing award winning, competition busting, real Barbeque. Come live the dream as I compete around the country in the KCBS Championship Barbecue circuit.

A new barbeque league?

I just came across the Amateur Barbeque League on the internet. It appears to be a new league for amateur cooks only. For only $25 a year, you can enter the ABL and cook in as many contests you like, until the championship where you compete for either $25,000 or $50,000. There is a $30 entry fee for each contest. Sounds like a great idea, but I don't know if it's feasible. There's no way a contest organizer would recoup his investment with only a $30 entry fee.

Besides the grand prize amount, there are a few other inconsistencies on their website, most of the contest locations take place at 111 Main St - whatever town. They don't talk about who is involved and I would think a new league would mention some of the old pros to show that it's legitimate. And finally, the only pages that seem to work properly are the home page and any page where you can send money.

Now I don't know anything about this league. No one I know in the BBQ world has ever heard of it. I'm not saying that this is a scam, but I'm not sending any money yet. I do hope that I'm wrong and this turns out to be a legitimate organization. I've sent them an e-mail asking for more information. I'll keep you posted.

It looks like all the states are in the South. I almost wish I was living down South where there were more contests.
