To help teams plan, here is an indication of what cook teams will be vending. This info WILL change but we'll keep it posted as they update us.
The Fair wants to know WHAT you will be serving and HOW MUCH you will be charging.
In fact, I need to get a list of that to them by the end of March. So, please let me know at patmaddock@cbbain.com

That doesn't mean you can't make a later change but it's a good indicator of what the menu will be.

Thanks!

Great response so far teams. This is shaping up to be a big event with potential to be HUGE. The Fair staff are communicating and responding to our needs very well. I think you will find this facility to be one of your favorites. Dan and I are involved in multiply events Fair weekend, so this will take the PNWBA as a whole to Get R Done. And to add to all the craziness - Dan slipped going out of the supply trailer today and broke a rib or two !!! Big Guy down again !!!

A team just asked a question about vending and the People's Choice votes which lead to the BBQ Pitmaster's Challenge live judged finale, early Saturday evening. What you vend, will earn people's choice votes throughout the day and that's what will be judged at 6pm.

If you are one of the top three vote earners, your vending item is then entered into the final, live judging for the BBQ Pitmaster's Challenge event. You will be asked to box 4 servings of what you have been vending and turn it in for that live judging.

So, if you are one of the top 3 People's Choice vote getters by 5pm, we will give you a turn-in box and instruct you to deliver 4 servings of your vending item to the judging turn-in table by 6pm....not 5 mins after. That and the same from two other teams will be presented to the live judging panel on stage just a few minutes later. Those 3 teams vie for a piece of the $600 prize pot set aside for that competition and the "stage show" will be conducted live and MC'd for your entertainment and that of Fair attendees. It's designed to be a fun moment but we'll be serious about the judging.

So, yes - it's what you have been vending all day that earned you those votes. That's what you will turn in for the final judging. Good question. There's your clarification.

IMPORTANT NOTE: I was just informed that the HEALTH DEPARTMENT is also requiring a list of what all teams will be vending! That should give you an indication about their level of interest and, of course, we can expect to be visited. I will be providing you with the applicable Health Department requirements but start thinking about WHERE foods are allowed to be prepared, at what temperatures you may/may not hold them, at what temperatures you may/may not serve them, etc. Hot and Cold holding are of vital importance to the Health Dept and must be to us. We violate those and we can expect to be instructed to cease serving and dump the food into the garbage then and there. And NO, holding a heated product outside in a "sterno" style chaffing dish is NOT an acceptable method.

NOW is a good time to go on-line to TPCHD.ORG/FOOD/ and start reading!!! That's also where you can obtain your FOOD WORKER CARD. Each team needs one member who has one...with them.(I just print mine out and post it in my site.) Don't worry about buying a permit. The Fair has generously obtained a permit covering all of us!!!
More to come (here) about health requirments...stay tuned!

As teams ask questions I think others might wonder about also, I'll post the answers here.

Can we sleep in our site Friday night and will bathrooms be available 24/7? YES and YES

Where can our vending items be prepared? See the Dept of Health website (above) but PREPARED ON SITE is the best answer!

I would like a little more detail on the sampling sat.

I assume..
People will buy tickets at a designated spot. Teams will accept 1 ticket = $1 and will NOT need to make change.
Each person buying tickets for sampling will be given 1 people's choice ticket??
Teams will need to supply the cup or other serving method to give out samples? or are they provided?
The fair takes $.65 of each dollar (ticket collected).
No price or item limit other than something BBQ and the fair costs more $2 and up.
Who is judging people's choice and using PNWBA format but in a live version??

Missing anything? Thanks.

Hello Folks, I am working towards Master certification in the wonderful world of judging. I have two tasks remaining.
1. Shadow a cooking team.
2. Attain certified table captain status. (Akin to assembling a complete set of chicken dentures)
3. I would like to accomplish all of the above before I am tamped into my urn.
If you could allow me "into the tent" for the Puyallup show I would be grateful. I come equipped with a current food handlers card and a mild interest in work (keep in mind, I am old).

Thanks, bill moore Grand Coulee 509 631 0409

ERIC - In reply to your Q's (above)...
Yes, there will be one cashier armed with a register to sell tickets to fairgoers, near the front end of our area. Those and only those will buy what we vend. No. Make no change. We'll be accounting, at the end of Sunday, in whole dollars. We honestly have yet to determine how many People's Choice Voting Stubs they will get when they purchase how many vending tickets....if you follow. We don't yet know but we will by 4/22. Rest assured.

Yes, teams will supply their own vending supplies as in cups, forks, napkins, whatever is needed.

No, the fair does not take $.65 out of each dollar. Approx $.65 will come out of each $2. It's approx. 35 cents out of each buck but remember that's state tax, etc.

We're not telling you what to charge for your vending but the Fair is highly encouraging that it start at a minimum of $2 per sample and upward.

Yes, the guidelines for what to vend and, in turn, compete with for People's Choice is simply "ANYTHING BBQ".

Final, live judging of the top three People's Choice vote getters, will be two CBJs and two VIPs. It will not be strictly by PNWBA judging protocol as again, it's "Anything BBQ"...our three finalists could easily be very different critters. I've asked the HJ to come up with appropriate judging criteria for the event and we'll ask him to brief that here, ahead of time, once he's worked that out.

I think that about covers it Eric. Should you have any more questions, please call BR-549...

Based on the expected attendance, do you believe 1 cashier will be sufficient?

Time to answer some more questions:

Power for all. Bring your heavy duty cords. Most of us know a 50-100 ft run is not uncommon. Fair plans to deploy spider boxes.

Saturday Load-in deadline is 8:30am with mandatory vehicles OUT time of 9:30am.

One cashier is what we'll have.

We'll be posting all sorts of good stuff from the Health Dept shortly. Watch for that. Ya blow that, you get shut down and you may be instructed to dump food. The fact is, that the HD guidelines are really very simple and straightforward and many of us have been complying with them for years. We all can. They are the basics we live by every time we sample/vend/cater whatever and we ought to be following them when we are preparing food for our judges to taste. Wouldn't you want cook teams to if YOU were judging?

Why am I doing all this? Because I need my head examined?
