Likely none that netted it strictly from normal, actual competitions, but I would say 4-5 teams tops each year gross over that. Usually takes winning one of the really big money cooks like SOTW, Sam's Finals, MIM with the Bonus, The Royal, Even Banjo B Que will get you well on your way.
That said, given the nature of the business, you cannot count on it year in and year out as a stream of positive revenue. A dry run of 4-5 cook offs can put a hurting on you, especially if you have to travel a ways.
Honestly, the safest way is to compete, but also cater and teach.
