Yes. I usually go for as little a difference front to back, top to bottom as I can. For chicken (which I dont consider BBQ), I lower it a tad and then place them right on the back, almost over the firebox. That way they're basically grilled...

Lake Sinclair, GA (strategically about an hour from darn near anywhere)
Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.
