How much does it cost?

Entry fees are based on your division. Here's how it works for the "backyard" division:

mmm...You will supply a minuimum of 25 pounds of hamburgers to prepare at the cookoff. All hamburgers must be cooked the day of the Hamburger Cook-off. That's not to say you can't marinate your hamburgers before checking in, but they must not be pre-cooked. This product will be used for judging and distributed as samples to attendees. You are welcome to bring your own condiments (ketchup, mustard, lettuce, cheese, etc.), but we will have condiments available in central areas.

We supply access to Mobile County health card carrying volunteers to monitor your food preparation, but if possible you should stop by Mobile County Health Department and get your own food handlers card.

We're trying to keep these costs low for you. Entry fee for the backyard (individual) division is only $50.00 and the top TEN places have CASH prizes of between $50 to $1000!

* A Maximum of 4 team members are allowed in 10' x 10' spaces. If you want to have more team members in your booth, please purchase a larger space. A Maximum of 10 team members are allowed in 10' x 20' spaces.

NOTE: The difference between the "backyard" division and the "organized group" division can be classified as follows:

If you are a church, agency, association, company or club coming together to form a grilling team you are in the "Organized Group" division.

If you are a subset of an organized group (for instance a Church Men's Breakfast Club), an individual spononsored by a company or you have ever been referred to as the team name you are registering, then you are in the "Organized Group" division.

If you are an individual, family or small group of friends, neighbors, co-workers, etc. that are coming together to cook the best hamburger on the planet, then you are in the "backyard" division.
