Even More About Ken And Brett’s Steak Cookoff Association

The Steak Cookoff Association (“SCA”) is dedicated to building the sport of steak cookoffs. The SCA benefits both cook teams and cookoffs by implementing standardized rules and equal competitive opportunities for each team. Every cook team likes to know the rules, know the judging tent is run with integrity, that payouts are guaranteed, and that they have an equal opportunity to win. So after a year of conversations and negotiations with some of the most influential leaders of the steak cookoff community, the SCA was created.

Now cook teams can be assured of a fair and well-run cookoff when the SCA sanctions it. All SCA-sanctioned cookoffs have an “SCA Representative” on-site to run the judging area and be an ambassador to the cook teams. The SCA Representative will be trained and know all the rules and regulations of an SCA cookoff. Learn more about SCA here. You can also read Clint Cantwell’s first-hand account of steak cookoffs here.

Millions come to every month for high quality tested recipes, tips on technique, science, mythbusting, product reviews, and inspiration. But it is expensive to run a website with more than 2,000 pages and we don’t have a big corporate partner to subsidize us.

Our most important source of sustenance is people who join our Pitmaster Club. But please don’t think of it as a donation. Members get MANY great benefits. We block all third-party ads, we give members free ebooks, magazines, interviews, webinars, more recipes, a monthly sweepstakes with prizes worth up to $2,000, discounts on products, and best of all a community of like-minded cooks free of flame wars.

1) Please try the search box at the top of every page before you ask for help.

2) Try to post your question to the appropriate page.

3) Tell us everything we need to know to help such as the type of cooker and thermometer. Dial thermometers are often off by as much as 50°F so if you are not using a good digital thermometer we probably can’t help you with time and temp questions. Please read this article about thermometers.

4) If you are a member of the Pitmaster Club, your comments login is probably different.
