I have loved to BBQ pretty much all my life. A few years back got into smoking which i do every chance I get. Been wanting to try competing. Have heard that it's good to attend one as a spectator first but there are'nt many in my area so I am just gonna go for it and compete May 5th and 6th. I feel a little intimidated but am just going to think of it as a learning experience and have fun. If any one has some pics of turn in boxes I would realy appreciate it. Thanks, Perry

Welcome Perry,
What part of Cali are you from?
One of the Brothers from the Los Angeles area did his first competition this weekend.

Grab a cold one and jump into the fray.
