Red, Wine and Blue 2019 Rib Cook-Off Team Registration
This is an invitation to register your cook off team for the inaugural Red, Wine and Blue event happening on July 7th at Vinovium, located at 214 Edmonds Ave., Johnson City TX, 78636.
In this first year we are limiting the total number of teams to 15, which will entirely be focused on SPARE RIBS (Baby Back ribs are not an approved meat for this competition). The competition will be comprised of two parts, a professionally judged competition and a People's Choice competition. There is a single registration fee for both competitions, but they are not weighted equally. The pot size from the professionally judge competition will comprise of 40% of the total registration fee (or $50), while the People's Choice will comprise of the remaining 60% (or $75) - 90% of all bbq team registration fees will go to the Top 3 placing teams at a 50%, 30% and 20% split in each competition.
Total Pot Size For Professionally Judged Competition - $750 x 90% = $675 (1st Place: $337.5 - 2nd Place: $202.5 - 3rd Place: $135)
Total Winnings For People's Choice Competition - $1125 x 90% = $1012.50 (1st Place: $506.25 - 2nd Place: $303.75 - 3rd Place: $202.50)
