Thanks guys. I will try to call him soon. I agree that things can change and they may decide to cancel or whatever, but they should have some tentative schedule. I did confirm that it's KCBS judging style, whatever that means, and I think it's some time on Friday for turn-ins, but they have pork and beef categories. Oh, and I appreciate and totally agree with taking it easy. That's half the reason I'm doing back yard, is to be able to relax and enjoy myself at the comp. I'm toying with the idea of taking a small pit or my big one. Oh well, thanks again for letting me know that I'm not crazy for expecting info.
