lots of notes, little drinking, little sleeping....

And don't forget to build full comp boxes for your meats. Getting practice building them will help and if you post pics I am sure you will get some good advice!

Have fun Keith, I'm waiting on the pics :-D. Hope the weather gods smile on you for this weekend.

Great idea. We did the same thing. Really makes your first comp a lot more familiar. Not sure the neighbors could figure out why 2 grown men were out in the yard sleeping in tents...

I will be doing the same thing...not as much meat as normal..but everthing from set up to tare down....good time to take notes....

Not that you asked for any advice, but get a box and put EVERYTHING you use tonight in that box. Don't put anything away. Then, when you are done you'll have a real idea about what you'll need. Amazing how many comps I did before it entered my thick skull to bring measuring cups and a whisk!

Have fun!

The weatehr was terrible Dave, Since I have the luxuroy I changed my plan. Decided I would do a thursday practice run. So got all my stuff packed up and went ahead and trimmed chicken and ribs. I am going to cook tonight. Start trimming brisket and pork butts around 5pm. Colder today but dry.:-P:clap2::clap2:

I am looking at Versailles over memorial day if they do it again this year and Sedalia in June. Also thinking about Blue Springs, Columbia and The Royal. Look forward to meeting you. I am terrible at remembering names but may not have that problem with you. keith
