Smoke on the Water has been fortunate to have 100% KCBS Certified Judges for all our contests for over 10 years. In defense of Organizers, it is really a challenge to KNOW how many judges are needed when a lot of teams wait until last minute to register. Judges have to have time to make travel plans too. We have had to guess how many teams to expect and match judges to that count. Most of the time that works great until last minute there are a lot of registrations coming in or judges have to cancel for some reason or the other. Also, Dennis and I have been Judges' Co-Chair for all the years SOTW has organized contests and that is an advantage for any Organizer because they don't have to worry about getting judges when the main concern for them is to get Cook Teams to compete and make sure their needs are met.
