Generally, in most competitive events the answer is no. However, this is a BBQ event and we want our guests to have access to some quality BBQ. Pit teams may elect to sell food from their location if they are also registered with AWHC as a vendor. As a vendor, you will be subject to the fee of 15% of your revenue.
Guests may purchase a ticket to participate in the People's choice award. Tasting tickets are $5/each and allow rib samples from 5 different teams. This is a BLIND sampling (you will not know which team's meat you will be sampling). Multiple taster's tickets may be purchased.
Tickets to the Smokeout/Pioneer Day festival may be purchased the day of the event at the American West Heritage Center. People's choice tickets will be sold on site the day of the event. People's choice tickets are limited and will only be sold while supplies last.
No overnight camping for the public will be available during the event. Pit teams may come in the night before and camping will be available for pit teams only.
