Hey Guys--

Greetings from Tulsa Ok. You all have a great site.

I am a longtime backyard cook. I started smoking(meat) a few years ago.

Last year I got interested in the comp scene. I visited several contests and saw an enviroment that I enjoyed. In September I was lucky enough to cook for about 1500 evacuees at Camp Gruber. The Gruber cooking crew consisted of several very seasoned competition cooks like Russ Garrett(Smokin' Okies), Darcy Hicks(Ring of Fire), and Mike Hayes(Smokadelics). We cooked 500 lbs of brisket, 500 lbs of pork loin, 100 lbs of sausage and 500 lbs of chicken starting Friday at 7pm for 11am lunch. Around 2am Saturday morning, hanging with those guys, I was hooked for sure. By the time we were slicing and chopping, I was making plans for this year.

We are fortunate in this area to have a bunch of KCBS sanctioned contests. There are at least 8 KCBS state championships within an hour drive of my house. In May there is one every weekend. Oklahoma is also the home to some of the best cooks on the circuit. Twin Oaks Smokin' Crew(KCBS Team of the Year), The Boys From Tornado Alley(GC Jack and Royal Open 2005) and Lotta Bull(Royal Invite 2005 #3 Overall, # 8 Overall Jack 2005) are all local Okie teams.

At any rate, I've got 12-14 comps on my schedule(isn't self employment great?). The first will be Rio Rancho in March. I am practicing every weekend, and will do a comp condition shakedown next weekend.

Like I said, this is a great site with lots of good info, and I hope to meet some of you on the circuit this year.

Regards--Jeff

Welcome Jeff! Though I must say it is tough to hear that you have that many comps so close when us California boys get about 4 a year.
