If you want to step up and prove your jerky is the best around then you need to enter! A $20 fee will be charged for every entry with all money to be reserved for the competition. You can enter as many times you wish. All entry fees will be paid through PayPal.
A jerky entry must be in a sealed pouch with the Contestant # (to be given out after payment is received) clearly written on the pouch. The judges to be selected will know nothing more about the jerky than what their eyes, nose and taste buds tell them. It will be the sole responsibility of the contestant to mail the jerky to the judges. Judges are on the top of their game when it comes to jerky.
All participants will be required to send one bag of jerky to our judge. All bags should have two nice-sized pieces of jerky. If you want to send more, that’s up to you. After you have paid your registration fee you will be e-mailed the address of our judge.
To register, please e-mail Doug from Peppers and More at doug @ peppersandmore . com. The deadline to enter is March 5, 2015. In years past we have had questions about when to send the jerky due to freshness. I can assure you that when your entry arrives it will be judged and scored the same day, so there is no need to wait till the last miniute to ensure freshness
