I have a real question to be answered honestly, most comps have a backyard division. I do not feel I'm ready to compete against the big teams, they have paid their dues spent more time/money,etc.. My Q is really good, I'm not an inexperienced cook But am new to comps. ... Are we "in the way" at comps or do or will we be looked down on? I've spent money on smokers,banners,team logo, T-shirts but I really just want to cook and enjoy hanging out with other BBQ nuts like me. If ya are like me,hanging out by the smokers is the place I'm honestly the most de-stressed .
Thanks for this great forum!!
