It's something about 1.5 yrs old that KCBS started, here is a quote from their site...
Stand Alone Backyard Contest
These contests are designed to service those areas not large enough to host a Master Series Contest or are not interested in hosting a Master Series sanctioned contest. They are intended to promote barbecue in small towns across the country. They are to be comprised of non-professional teams that are required to cook chicken and pork ribs to win the Grand Championship. The cooking source at a Stand Alone Backyard Contest shall be of wood, wood pellets or charcoal. KCBS Backyard Rules and regulations apply. In addition, all KCBS team members who participate in a Backyard Sanctioned Contest earn points towards the KCBS Backyard Team of the Year
I think there is requirements/definitions on what they consider non-pro teams. I'll not get that part right, but only a few entries in pro series side and no GC, is what I remember.
