One more thing:
A cook team IS NOT a democracy! :D
You'll need a captain and that's usually the one that's paying the bills. Also, the captain is THE FINAL word on what happens - what gets turned in, etc.
At NJ Rob and I could have a say but Phil was THE FINAL word on what got turned in and how it was cooked.
Tim and I have cooked together enough now that we defer to one another now and then. He usually makes pit decisions and I do the seasoning and set the times. We discuss turn-ins and usually come to a mutual decision.
Again, these are just my thoughts.
I wish you guys would get a team together for the contest in SoCal and surrounding environ. :D
