BYOG …or… How many amps does it take to win a BBQ competition?

Last year’s competition went GREAT, but we did have one big issue – power for the BBQ teams.  It all worked out fine after some finagling by our awesome teams, but in order to avoid any issues this year…

BBQ Teams – Please keep in mind that certain types of electrical equipment (hot plates, microwaves, RV’s with air conditioning, etc.) will not run on a 20 amp breaker.  If you are bringing these types of items, please remember to BYOG… that’s Bring Your Own Generator. 

As our applications state, there may be some additional power available on-site – but there will be an additional fee, and the supply is very limited.  If you want to be assured of having the power you need, we encourage you to BYOG.  The Yazoo County Fairgrounds is an awesome location for this festival to continue to grow over the years, but for the time being, we appreciate your patience with us and with the wonderful folks at the fairgrounds as we work toward making Fire & Feast one of the greatest barbecue competitions in existence!  (We dream big, y’all!)

Thanks so much from the Fire & Feast crew!  If you have any questions, feel free to call us at the Yazoo County Convention & Visitors Bureau at 800-381-0662.

Have a Happy 4th of July!
