If Covington, VA doesn't get off their butt and get their comp posted, I may travel west for this one.

I'm going to be there in uncharted territory where Fowl Butt and Big JT roam and own that part of the country.

This could be our first contest if everything goes right leading up to it. If it ever warms up and some of the snow melts so I can practice.

thinbluebbq, the author of this thread IS the contest contact.
PM him and he'll answer any questions.

Brian's a busy guy. I've been at the comp every year since the first year.
I'll help answer any questions you have as well (if I can).

This one sounds fun for our HogFathers BBQ team. We have only done backyard comps thus far but sounds like we need to jump in the deep end of the pool. Any advice stepping up to the major leagues?

Oh, and Dadeo719. My advice is to step up by signing up for this comp. It is super new cooker friendly and we have amazing teams that come who will keep you motivated. Tighten the batting gloves, keep your eye on the ball and swing for the fences. You won't regret stepping up. Believe me!

Comps are just a plain ol' ball of fun w/ a little sleep deprivation and usually booze mixed in. BBQ folks are some of the nicest most helpful folks you'll ever meet. Our team became extremely good friends w/ our neighbors at the comps we've done and we've enjoyed some mild successes in the little while we've been doing it.

Dadeo, come on in the water's fine. The BBQ teams in the OH/KY/IN area are some real quality folks and you won't be sorry. I hope our team can make it to this one in the near future!
